1. S2

2. Drenlin

i think if i liked both those bows equally well, and shot em both equally well, id shoot em side by side and see if either was noticably louder than the other. in this case, i dont know if thered be much difference...

if still equal, id go with the faster of the two. im not a speed guy, but why go slower if all else is equal?

O.k I see what you are saying. Well as I understand you Americans are for K.Energy. So you want a light arrow with a light bow. No I say In South Africa you want MOMENTUM vs. Kinetic, I shoot a speed bow so as to achieve a high momentum - I shoot a GT500 80lbs with EASTON dangerous game 250's at 17.5grains per inch and a 125grain SLICK TICK my arrow weighs 800grains with a momentum of 1.00 I can blast an Elephant with that and almost have pass through....

I shot the Dren last year and went to the S2 this year (two of them as a matter of fact) and was really happy with the switch.

I think the S2 holds better and is a more "stable" platform.

The S2 is basically the same as the original Switchback, which was a great bow and I wish they made it longer. I love my Dren LD but if I could get a Switchback or a Drenalin and both fit me equally well I think I would go Switchback, I like a little extra weight to my bow. So I guess my vote would be S2.

The S2 is the exact same bow as the original Switchback. :)

That is to say....AWESOME!

Between the 2 you mentioned..... I'd go with the Dren. However, for the record, the DXT is my all-time fav. :cool:
