    Goran's site lists the Prestige Classic XL as being 703mm long. Thats converts to 27.67 inches.

    27.67 makes more sense than 27.25. Ever measure out .25 in.? Pretty tiny and - wait for it - inconsequential, unless there's other stuff going on under the hood that just happens to be characteristic of the XL and not the SL. I hear that in prisons, they "XL" their Prestiges by inserting contraband shims (a well-bent gum wrapper will do) underneath the tops of the CAP strips, giving it that extra .25 in. difference. Sounds silly, no?
