User Details: 81 year old male with COPD.
Strengths: Smooth ride, hill climbing, and terrain handling. I have a flat loose stone area and a 100 foot x 13 degree hill that my Go-Go Traveler Elite has difficulty negotiating. The Panther handles this easily. This was the reason for my purchasing and am totally satisfied with the performance in this area. The spring suspension ride is excellent as compared to my Go-Go Traveler.
Weaknesses: Weight and height of unit makes for heavy steering when not moving. Not too bad, but not as easy as my 3-wheel Go-Go Elite Traveler and is to be expected when upgrading to heavier unit. The turning radius also takes some getting used to since unit is large as compared to my traveler scooter. My other gripe is that the seat slide back-stop is positioned too far forward making me wish I could adjust the seat another 6" to the back. I purchased the larger 22" seat which does not help the slide-back adjustment. The 22" seat is BIG and I wish that I had not purchased it for my 180 pound frame to use.
