Hello everyone.I am new into archery and i am going to move to compound.I was searching for bows and i checked the specs of Martin Archery's pantera.
The adjustability of fury xt cams,the axle to axle length and length draw(i am about 6' 4" tall and from what i searched my length draw is about 30.5") makes it to be my choice since i plan to go for target shooting and hunting.
How difficult is for a bow technician to tune fury xt cams?I am asking this since i asked the guy in the pro shop about poundage range and he said that compounds have a range of 10pounds.And Pantera comes with a range of 15 and if the fury xt cams are tuned, the range goes to 35 pounds.

Thank you very much in advance,best regards
Dimitris.

Welcome to the forum, as for adjust-ability Martin makes some of the best. Martin bows do not need a bow press, so you are able to do all you own work with simple tools. Martins owner manuals will show you all the adjustments, but I am sure some of the member / owners of these bows will tell you some of the tricks. I am sure there will be more replies as the day goes on.

Welcome to the forum. I just got the bow in question. It is super easy, there is a peg you hook the string to in order to change to a lower weight setting, the draw length module is easy to move as well. I have only just started tinkering with it and so far I do like this cam system. Shoot straight.

Oh, and look at the Bowmaster Bow Press. $50 . Its easy to use and beats going to the shop for this/that.

well the thing with the archer's id is kinda funny...
I dont know if i mentioned it,but i live in Greece.
Greece has a ton of red tape issues and a bow is considered a weapon.The police officer explained to me that is considered a weapon because it can kill a person(if i hit somebody with a laptop on the head probably i will kill him,but almost everyone has a lap top and it is not considered a weapon).
So the archer's id card is an id card which shows that you are a valid and active archer at a sports club and you can justify having a bow and move it from place to place.

And here I go thinking FOID cards in Illinois are pretty silly ...

Firearm Owner ID card - IL only State that requires you to have one in order to purchase, transport, shoot, handle, own a firearm legally and must have one in order to purchase ammunition of any kind.

And regarding the Fury XT - I have plans to do some digging into it once I get all my ducks in a row, which should be soon. I'm confident there is more to be gained with my Bengal, it is just a matter of playing around with it and seeing exactly what the cam can do.
