I was at a local Cabelas the other day and I saw they had the new Pantera and the Onza there. I noticed the Pantera had the older grip with the nice thermal pad. The Onza had a much smaller grip with very little thermal grip. I know the smaller and thinner grip is on most of the new Martins. I wanted to see how everyone likes the new grip versus the old one. I personally like the older grip. I have a 2010 Cheetah and would not go to the Exile based on the grip. Many bow companies use the thinner grip but Im not sure what the advantage of that would be for hunting? I know its personal preference, for hunting the thicker grip seemed easier to hold the bow and had more of the thermal feature.The new Pantera looked and felt like a great bow for the price. The thinner grip seems more suited for target shooters. I could be wrong just my thoughts. What is everyones' preference?
