Who is shooting one? How's the performance? Kicking around the idea of picking one up I shot one awhile back and fell in love with the accuracy but I picked the onza instead.

It would be primarily a hunting rig and maybe some 3d shoots when I give the nemesis a break, lol. Talk me into buying one just don't twist my arm to hard lol:cool:

I just got one and threw an old rest/sight on it (waiting for birth day gifts). Any way it sure is a smooth draw and piece of cake to set up. So, I am liking it. Do it. Do it. Do it.

I was going to get the Onza, but picked up the Pantera instead. Anyway, I haven't had mine that long, but I'm really enjoying it. I've probably put about 400-500 arrows through it so far. Had someone at the range tell me it looked really fast - not sure that I could tell from just watching the arrow fly myself... - but its always nice to hear. I haven't put it through a chrono to find out.

Everything else is good, it might be a little noisy, but not loud enough that I've bothered to try and quiet it.

It is an awesome bow!! I had a Bear Attack before the Pantera and that was a great bow, fast and quiet. This Pantera isn't as quiet or fast as the Bear but it sure does draw a hell of a lot smoother and is a pleasure to shoot. I can shoot all day long and not feel fatigued, and its scary accurate. The longer ATA is something that I quickly fell in love with, it holds very steady and drives tacks. With all that being said my only complaint is that I have developed a buzzing noise in idler wheel, mostly likely shims but could be bearings (hoping just shims). I would not hesitate to buy this bow, you won't be dissapointed.

Side note: I'm shooting a 28" draw at 60#'s with a 404gr arrow and getting 255fps consistantly through the chrono. Like I said, not a speed demon but I hit my mark every time.

I like my Onza. IMO it draws a little more harsh. It is very fast. It did kill 2 does and 2 rocks so, it is a killing machine. IMO the single cam Pantera is just smoother draw. I am happy with both.

As far as the Pantera is concerned, it wouldn't have been made for so many years if it wasn't a good bow.:cool:

CURVEBALL!! How did you like the Onza?

Loved it tuned out well and drove tacks at ibo speed sold it to upgrade and I gotta say the nemesis 35 does everything the onza did only a tad bit quieter. I shot solo cams all 14 years of my archery life before the onza and I just miss the simplicity of them.

If I picked one up it wouldn't be until probably 3 maybe 4 weeks from now and it would have to be bonz camo with cloaked cams I always loved the look of the cloaked cams, and I always loved my Martin solo cam bows...... Must be a sign I HAVE to get one lol.

Congrats Wilt, I've always liked the Pantera, and with the Fury cams I bet it'll be an awesome add to your arsenal!

Tried to get a quote today from a new local dealer and was definitely surprised at his business efforts and won't be buying from him this might have to be my first ebay bow.

I like kmarcheryhut. I have bought 3 bows from them. However, they did not accept my offer on a silencer. I will give kudos to another Ebay Martin seller, "outdoorsportsindiana''. I bought my Pantera from them and it got here super fast w/ no problems. they have alot of Martins for sell.

Even if they don't do the cams in Bonz, most places only charge $20-30 to dip cams. Could always take them off and have them dipped to match.

I have 2 bows from KM and would like to see what else is outhere. I could not locate the outdoorsportsindiana. Does this company have another name?

I've had my Pantera 4 mos. now and still think its an awesome bow,one thing about the fury xt cam is if you don't like how it feels you can change it.it's so adjustable you can tune it to your taste.I also bought mine from kmarcheyhut they are a good seller with good deals.

Awesome! i messed around with one at my local club and it just felt so buttery smooth to me i knew i would be looking at them in the future. How is the speed of your fury xt cam I keep reading everybody is dissapointed with the speed but i can't find any real world speeds anywhere on this bow!

I don't have a chrony(my next purchase)so Ican't give you any actual numbers but judging from my pin gap 20to60 it seems about as fast as most.I'm shooting a 403gr goldtip at 30" and 63#

Good and bad news I decided to do the responsible thing and get back into school to chase my career choice that i have always wanted and the bad news is i put any archery purchases on hold with the exception of some new sticks for the nemesis (arrows) and a stabilizer i know in the long run this is the right decision and i have plenty years of archery purchases to make.
