    If you could pick one of these 2 for singles and handicaps does one have an advantage over the other? recoil, weight, pointability?

    The BT-99 will kick more, since it is lighter. The new model fits me well. It shoots high enough for me to be deadly at the 27 yd line.

    I think I will stay with my XT Unsingle Combo. With appropriately installed weights, it is very docile even with the boomers I use at the back fence.

    The XT offers three BIG advantages because of the two barrels/chokes: provides a more open choke in one barrel for 16 yd. singles and a tighter choke in the other barrel for handicap; the XT is heavier reducing felt recoil; finally, it works well for doubles. No need to change guns. JMO Regards, Ed

    Goat, your reply can be ammended to "the XT offers ONE big advantage: it works well for doubles."

    Choke tubes in the BT negate your first advantage.
    Recoil reducing devices/weights negate your second.

    I'd have to recommend the XT as well. But I just like O/U's.

    I love my BT-99 but then again I really only shoot trap. I also have a 525 that i could use to shoot doubles with as well. If you want to shoot trap then the BT-99 it is!
