Have you seen the old clips of Dave Phifer's Merlyn-modded 500B landing at his private strip in WA state? They're pretty impressive.
Anecdotally, I do think the 520 and the 560F are considered the TC's with the shortest T/O of the bunch . The 680F and 560F are identical, but the different engine and the lower MGTOW of the 560F makes it a real short field performer, from what I heard. But I think a Merlyn-powered 500B probably has a 560F beat.
