    Default Martin Pantera

    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

    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.

    He hopes. LOL

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

    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.
