29" draw, 70lbs, 80% let-off, 425 grain arrow, 275 fps, 71 ft/lbs of kinetic energy.

This link has some reviews, albeit they are dated (2005), they are still worthy of reading. http://mathewsinc.com/product/switchback/

Best of luck in your final decision.

In my lowly opinion the Switchback is the best bow Matthews has ever made. I shot a buddies and it is sweet. From what I have seen online your looking from $450 to $600 dependent on what comes with it.

I bought a used switchback xt about 6 weeks ago and i love it. Paid 450. Had a whisker biscuit, a dozen arrows, kwickee quiver, a release and the guy also threw in an old the block target. First shot out of it hit the bullseye at 25 yards. I had a mathews Ultralight I bought new in 1993 or 94. It shot great but the switchback xt has little shock after the shot. I would buy that one for 375 if i were you.

Good price . Check the string and cable too . Make sure they are in good shape as well as the overall shape of the bow .
I never owned one , but have shot one and I would also say its the best bow Mathews ever made . If they brought that model back with a few refinements , I'd buy one .
