Whats the difference btw these two bows? They have the same cams & the same ibo speed. Except the cheetah is 2in smaller! Wouldnt that make the cheetah a better value? If so why is the bengal more expensive?

good question, never shot a martin cheetah so I couldn't tell you the diff but I know the Bengal is a sweet shooter !!!!! They look almost identical does the cheetah allow for the STS and the CCS ?????

I shot both bows side by side last year. 09 models. I have to say that the Bengal was far "deader" in my hands. NO shock at all, no vibration, nothing, just perfect. The Cheetah had a bit of jump, and vibration when I shot it. Seems the Bengal is just put togather a bit better, and worth the extra money.

Yeah the cheetah is able to use a CCS and STS. I shoot a cheetah and just was wondering how it performed to its bigger bro the Bengal.

I shot them both at different times. The Bengal feels better,but not enough to choose over the Cheetah. With that being said, I came across my Cheetah(craigslist) a week after shooting them both at pro shops. I could pass up the price for a fully rigged '08. The Cheetah is a bit jumpy until you start adding accessories. It's tamed pretty good now.

'08 Cheetah,RH,60#,28.5" draw.
accessories: Norway ind STS,G5 peep,kisser,d-loop,limbsavers,and LS S-coil stabilizer. No string dampners except the sts. This bow didn't need them.

The longer ATA is better for stability in shooting. That is why you see all the target shooters going for the Longer ATA. If you are looking for a shorter bow for tree stands than the cheetah is the way to go. But the Bengal is not jumpy and is stable in target shots.
