Panther is finally coming out with the tall buggy wheels like Hot Bodies, Losi and maybe a few others. Yee-haw! I think proline does too, V2???? I think, but you'd have to check to make sure.

Still waiting for Panter to come with a tread pattern like AKA's City Block,
ProLine's Revolver, Caliber or JConcept's Subculture; for dry dusty surfaces.

I think Panther just came out with a new tire!!!!! TALON; it's kinda like the
Proline Revolver, (a dusty dry tire) but I can't find it on their website.

I steadily rely on the switches and raptors for night time mains around here with all of the clay in our tracks (Pa/Oh). Right now in my tire arsenal there are s and ms Gators, s and clay Switch 2.0's, clay Raptors, s K2's. I find myself reaching for the Raptors more than any.

I can't wait for the Talons, they actually look most like the Calibers with the tripod dual stage pin. I like the fact that the Talons don't seem to be directional as far as the center section of the tire. Does anyone know when we'll be able to order them?

Tower has them listed as in stock in Med Soft.

I concur. I'm not sure why, but they seem to be special tires. able to keep the rear end in check , especially the k2's.

After testing soft compound Talons, these tires seem to work best with harder closed cell foams like AKA's or proline blues. They are most similar to a Pro-Line caliber.

Sorry I should have said Pro-line Calibers. What type of surface did you do
your testing on? I always thought that Panther's white soft foam was best because it is so light. Did you try their firm grey foam inserts?
