Ideal for tree-stand or blind hunting, the Martin Cheetah is a compact, smooth, and quiet bow at a very affordable price. With a forgiving brace height and efficient eccentric system, this bow is a great performer with a very smooth draw. Read full review...

All in all the Pantera Magnum is a pretty impressive package. Its user friendly specs and easy to make adjustments will appeal to shooters and dealers alike. Though primarily designed as a longer axle to axle hunting bow, it should perform equally well on a 3D course or on an NFAA face. Keen new features and trusted technology blend together well, and even with a few areas having room for improvement, the overall value of this bow is very good. Priced respectfully in the 500$ price range, its a tough competitor with similar spec'd bows with even higher price points. Read full review...
