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.

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.

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.
