This should be good Nah just kidding. They are both great. My last boat purchase was between Saber and Pantera. I bought the Saber. I have a few buddies with Pantera's so I have been in them too. My opinion....I'm just saying...is I prefer the Saber. I think the ride is a bit softer and more solid in the Saber. Softer because of the rounded keel and full length running strakes. More solid because the entire hull of the Saber is balsa cored. I don't think all Pantera's are....atleast the ones I was in were not. Also I felt like I was riding on the Pantera not in it. The Saber you sit a little more in the boat. But that is just seating preference. With that said they are both built like brick s hit houses and are as custom as it gets.
