Default Mathews Drenalin or DXT?? Help...

I am looking at 2 used bows right now, one is a Mathews Drenalin and the other a DXT. Both appear to be great deals, but since I am not able to physically hold and shoot them before purchase then I'm not sure which one would be best for me. I am new to bowhunting, so I feel that either would be a great bow for me, especially since I really have nothing to compare to. If anyone has any advice please feel free to share! The only difference that I know of with the two is that the Drenalin is 33 1/2" in overall length and the DXT is 30 1/2" overall length. I've heard mixed emotions about the "smaller" bow, but I am feeling like it might be a better fit since I will be using it primarily in ground blinds and climbers.

I've never been a Mathews fan, but I like short bows. I shoot a PSE Bow Madness XS (28.5-inch ATA). It's great in the stand, quite, has plenty of punch and accurate to boot. If I was choosing between the two bows you mentioned, I'd go with the DXT for that reason alone.

Default Bows

I owned them both and like the Drenalin better. Just shot better and felt better for myself.
