I have the Camo Cynergy, 28" barrels, used it about 90% for last year and this year for ducks. I love mine, and use it for skeet all the time also so I get good practice with my duck gun. The 28" barrels are short enough for me to use in my Final Attack layout boat. Almost all my other guns are 26" barrels, but with SA guns that makes them longer than the 28" cynergy. I wouldn't feel the 26" was too short, might be nice for blinds and boats. But the 28" isn't too long for boat layout if you're undecided there.
