One of you Martin guys tell me the main difference between these 2 bows, they seem pretty close to me. What do you think of the 2010 models?

Riser cut and axel to axel? Is that it? Or is there a css on the firecat?

The Pantera limbs have a little more preload and it came standard with the cloaked package. I've shot both models side by side and the Pantera seemed to be a little smoother, quieter and had almost zero vibration. The Pantera was a little faster than the FC 360 also. Both models had the ccs/sts from the factory.

I've shot both of them also, 2010 models, and found the same as the post above.
The '10 Pantera is probably the best single cam bow I've tried.
I really like the 'Saddleback' grips that are on most of the '11 models, however, I think that the '10's are far more owner friendly.
And personally I like the ccs/sts a lot more than the newer cable containment/string suppressors.
...And you can pick up a 2010 model for a good deal less than an '11.
