Welcome to the forum. I have owned a 2012 Cougar FC w/ Fury XT one cam, and it shot great. I like the riser design and the grip melts in your hand. I just have a 2010 Cheetah and cant let it go, so I sold the Cougar to help fund 2013. I have always wanted a Pantera and just never pulled the trigger on getting one. Either the Cougar or Pantera would be a good choice depending on what you want in axle to axle. Shoot them both and see which one feels better in your hand. Dont be afraid of the short a-a on the Cougar because it held and shot great.
