DXT. Bought it brand new. It rolled over smooth as silk. It was the single hardest shooting bow I ever owned. My Brother-in-law owns it now and when we shoot together, his arrows bury 4 or 5 inches deeper than my traverse at the same poundage and draw weight. I shot a lot of 3D with it from 2009-2013. I shot Easton fatboys during 3D season and shot one pin to like 33 yards or something around there if I'm remembering correctly. It had blazing speed for the date it was produced. But it was a short bow axel to axel and was not real forgiving...Awesome for a tree stand or ground blind though.
I just drug out my Switchback. It is nearly the most accurate bow I have ever owned (Z7 was surprising for short length). Really made me realize the hump/dump of my V3 31. The V3 is way quieter and more accurate but I do have a 17” front and 8” back bar on it. 26.75” draw, 367.8 grain arrow 240 fps @ 57.3# w/ Switchback vs 254 fps @ 54# w/ V3 31. The V3 is a better bow- it pulls harder pound for pound but it is also quieter and shock free.
The Switchback is smooth and quiet, the Drenalin is basically a lighter/faster Switchback if I remember correctly, can't go wrong with either. I feel that for speed wise my newer mathews can reach speeds at 60# that the SB needed 70# to reach, but those SB solo cams are as smooth as today's bows. Also, don't get too hung up on speed if using for whitetail hunting, the SB and Drenalin had no problems getting passthroughs on whitetail and filled many many tags over the years and still do.
