Was wondering if the S2 was the replacement for the Switchback XT?

I have owned the Legacy, LX, SQ2, Switchback , XT, Drenalin, DXT, and now my second Drenalin. I like it best of all. I have never shot the Reezen. Im am really enjoying my Drenny, 28 draw 73 lbs 385 grain 5575 gt 285 fps. I will say out of the rest I have owned the SQ2 is the one I wish I had back.

Being a longer draw shooter as well - If I could return my bow without spending another dollar and get another - it would be the Dren LD. Short ATA bows and long draws dont always mix as far as good form and repeatability.

That said, I sitll love my Reezen 6.5 - I've just come to terms with the fact I will never achieve awesome form on this bow. Though i have been tempted to toss up a trade ad to see if someone would want to trade a 30 inch Reezen for a 30 inch Dren LD.

I have a SBXT but if I had to buy another Matthews, without a doubt would be a Drenalin LD, who needs more speed than that? The DXT doesnt fit me well as that shorter ATA with sharp string angles, had trouble with peep alignment but that is just me. I love my SBXT, great bow but the S2 is a sleeper, very good bow IMO

I'm 6'-4" with a 30" draw and a Reezen. I am truly loving this bow. Tuned easy, shoots fast, and very easy to shoot for me. My broad heads and field tips are grouping together like fleas on a dogs back. Was out shooting my broad heads today, getting ready for some Thunder Chickens, ended up grouping so tightly I gotta redo some arrows. After I do get'em done, I'm gonna start shootin at different spots.:D

Don't know if it's the right bow for you, but I'm loving it. I was shooting a Mathews MQ32 which also has the 7" BH and 32" ATA length, so there was no big change except getting use to the more radical cam, and that was easy after seeing how it shoots.

They all seem "Well liked" exept by the hater crowd. I am not sure there are really any bad bows on the market. Competition may lead to inflated numbers for marketing sake, but all of the bows are faster, quieter, and better engineered than in the past.

Mine is a drenalin, but it was a close choice between that and several others.

Mathews Switchback XT all the way. I actually was ordering a Reezen until I shot it. I just can't give up that buttery smooth draw that we have all come to love from Mathews. The Monster is crazy fast but I don't like the hump in the middle of the draw cycle. Maybe next year I will upgrade but I guess the old sang if it ain't broke don't fix it applies here.

I would not fix it if I still had my bow:cry: But now I am going to haft to try something. Can you still buy module's for the Switchback XT to make one 30 inch draw or new wheel?

In my opinion the Switchback is the best hunting bow Mathews has come out with to date.

I shot a Reezen yesterday morning. Best Mathews bow I have shot to date and I've shot just about all of them.
