Just started setting up my Pantera (new, 2010 model) yesterday. Found a couple dismaying things:
1) Can't completely tear down without a press any longer. Liked that feature on my Bengal. So now I have to get a press. Called Joel about it and he said there's more pre-load on the Pantera.
2) The back wall is real spongy. Only one way to fix it and it's not the best solution.
I put in the #6 DL mod and on my drawboard, it measures to 31.25". BUT when I actually draw it, from 30.375" to 31.25" is real spongy. Almost a full inch of sponge. So I have to set my draw stop at 30.375" to eliminate it and have a good firm backwall.
Technically the bow allows me to shoot a 31" DL, but only IF I want to put up with sponginess. The Bengal wasn't that way. It had the M2-Pro cam and not one bit of sponginess all the way back to 31+.
Same thing happened with the #5 mod. I had it in and there was almost a full inch of sponge with that one also.
The Pantera has the AccuTrak cam and I'm thinking it's something about that cam that's doing it. Has anyone here had that problem? Is there any solution other than what I've done?
Per my other post re: cam rotation, ATA and brace height are correct.
