    I don't know the speeds you may get, but I think you'll be happy with the bow.

    Default hope you read this reply

    I have been hunting and shooting in archery for the last 26 years...and have given up on all the pro-shops....I won't let anyone touch my equipment but myself!!! Why??? Because, after many years of studying and testing my own equipment have come up with a ultimate and accurate package on every piece of equipment that I have owned...not that you have to do that...I just like it!!! Anyways, with the great expanse of knowledge the internet has to offer, you can speed certain questions up with a few properly asked questions...I personally have gotten into the knowledge of "mathematics and physics" of a bow and probably have nearly every formula needed for archery equipment necessary written down and know how to use them!!!!

    So to answer your question and give you a little quick insight into internet knowledge...simply type in "archery hut" (none of these, " ,by the way, I am just trying to emphasize) hit search and in the top ten list "bill pellegrino's archery hut" should be in the list--click on that---hit calculators in his main page and it comes up with three crucial and neccesary calculators for all hunting archers (1) IBO speed adjustment calculator;(2)Kinetic Energy calculator;(3)Front of Center (F.O.C.) calculator....o.k. so now you are on your way to learning about every bow you own...kind of....that F.O.C. thing is crucial to very accurate arrow flight, by the way ( 5-7% is the best I normally come up with and that is right in the ball park)

    So, for what it is worth, I took the liberty of punching and calculating what you had for information and a little studying on the bow that you would like to purchase: You will get approximately 270 f.p.s. with 61.7 foot lbs. of energy...which is actually really good...I know it bousts 310 f.p.s., but you know that I.B.O. thing is deceiving, you got to take in a ton of factors...and just so you know...I calculated approximately 20 grains for string, not knowing actuall weight of peep and string silencers...no biggy anyways, they only effect within a couple f.p.s. 61.7 foot lbs. of energy should satisfactoraly get you well over a deer penetration, including elk and similar type critters, just a little short however for dangerous game...like cape buffalo and such...hope you where not planning on going to Africa for "Big Dangerous Game"...I would be jealous anyways..ha!ha!

    Last but not least, this calculator I am refering to is actually very accurate, I personally own a "beta chrony" chronograph and found the math to be very close to real life in a chronograph's eyes!!! You where probably wondering if I owned a chronograph? Since I do it on my own that is, and you where right...buy one for yourself...they are great and you won't believe how much you will use one yourself, heck a good one like I own will measure the speed of your kids spitballs for under a $150.00 bucks, and did I mention they will even measure up to 5,000 f.p.s. if you like hunting or shooting with a high powered rifle!!!!(NO OFFENSE OUT THERE IN BOW LAND BY THE WAY)

    JUst curious if you are interesred in speed did you know the nitrous cams are available for the pantera? The web site and Martins catalogue don't show it but my dealer told me about the misprint. I even have a bengal with the nitrous cams, the only one at this time. Love the speed. We put it through the chrono when I picked it up. 26" draw, 63lbs., 415gr. aluminum arrow. whisker bisket rest[wrong size had medium bisket for carbons, tight fit], 3 brass nock points, peep and cats whiskers. 250 fps. That should translate into 320-330 fps. IBO.
