    Default I picked up a almost new 07-martin pantera

    My father in law is having some shoulder and elbow issues, so he gave me his 07- Martin Pantera...fully loaded....I mean all his gear. Case, arrows etc.
    all for $350
    Not a scratch on this bow. He's taken 3-4 bucks with it the last few years. It's fast, pretty quiet, a little vibe, HEAVY unfortunately, steady on the target though. I wish it were a little lighter and 2-3 inches shorter. But all in all a good rig. It needs a sts system on it...but I really don't want to add anymore weight to it.
    Can I add one on the cable rod like darton has done...?

    anyone else have a 07 pantera ?

    i'll post some pics soon

    Post some pics of your if you like

    Congrats on the new bow! Sorry to hear about your father in laws shoulder problems. Maybe he can apply the 350 to a crossbow and get out to hunt.

    The more I play around with this bow....
    the more I like it. It's solid, WELL BUILT
    Holds on target well. Very smooth draw which isn't surprising.
    Just need a stabilizer....really curious how it will feel and sound.
    I like it the way it is, but just a couple of tweaks.
    It's dead in your hands at the shot and it's quiet.
    I could see myself keeping this. I'm not sure why Martin got away from this type of build......well I know why...obviously to trim the weight and the cost, but this is a solid bow.

    Very impressed with this bow!
    I really like shooting this bow. Man it's built well, super solid. I think the 3 piece makes sense. Camo is done very well on it. Very quality bow here.
    I'll post pics soon.
    all I need is a sts system or cable rod sts....

    I had a custom 2007 Pantera. Had mine built with Nitrous cams. Quite a shooter and one of my faster Martins--Nitrous cams were noted for their smooth roll over and SPEED. Unfortunately a came up with a muscle loss problem and due to the bow's mass weight I had to sell it and get something lighter. Ended up with a 2008 FireCat with Binary cams. Maybe should have kept the Pantera just for the cams.
