    Default help may be needed

    I have bought a used 2010 pantera on EBAY.it has 45-60 lb limbs.it's coming with a QUAD pro series drop away rest,a D loop, a meta peep and a martin round a bout stabilizer.I had read all I could find about this bow.almost everything i have read has been positive.that is until i read on this forum a short time ago about the limbs blowing apart.that was the day after i "WON" the bow.is there anything else i should be looking for on this bow. I sure wish I had a MARTIN pro shop around here! i have'nt received the bow yet. can't wait. I hope this martin is as good as the last martin i bought. WARTHOG MOD. B that was around 1980

    2009 was the bad year for limbs, the 2010 went thru several changes, and as Elkslayer said, Martin repaired 'em all. Great CS. And don't worry, we'll be your pro shop, There's a ton of knowledge hanging around here.

    I think the vast majority of limb problems was on dual cam bows as well. I heard of VERY few single cam bows having any problems. Your Pantera should give you no troubles at all. Enjoy shooting it!

    I really like the '10 Pantera's.
    They're like shooting a single cam Alien X.

    These guys are right.........know one can beat matins customer sevice. I split a limb on my 08 firecat and they sent me 2010 pro x limbs, cams, sting, and limb pockets. Cant say enough good about them. You have a good bow and I will bet that you wont have any problems. Have fun with it and shoot it every day.
