26" on my A400.
Swung a 28" and the 26" in the A400 at the store. 26' felt so much better.
Ducks or geese over decoys, a 26" moves from bird to bird effortlessly. Pheasants, yes. Does great on clays as well.
So the words Fall and Autumn are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world.

I shoot a 32".


The poll is complete. The 32" & 34" is in the punt gun category. This poll is for hand held shotguns, not artillery.

28 on most guns and 30 on some older ones.
Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair or f-ing beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.- Al Swearengen

Im in the same boat, got a few 26 inch Benellis and thinking of trying a 28 inch or the first time. Confused... :huh:

26 on the 11-87, 28 on the Xtrema2. I have yet to tell the difference other than the 28 is a pain in the turkey woods.

28". Primarily for a smoother swing, but also you get a longer sight plane and it will save your buddies' ears in the blind.
