I received a phone call today from a buddy of mine, looking to buy my 02 Cougar. We agreed on a price, but I now need to get a new bow. I call my shop, and he tells me he can set me up in an Alien X. I don't know much about the Rytera line, except I looked at the website and do not see the X in the 2012 line, only the XT and the Ultralight. The specs and price of the XT seem to reflect what he was talking about, but I am not 100%. I am going to check it out next week. What are the differences between the X (possible left over 2011), and the XT and Ultralight?

Ultralight = Alien X
x2 That's right. The XT is a new Rytera for 2012, and I believe some say it's similiar to the Onza III. The XT has a bridged riser, and has a longer ATA than the Ultralight.
Here's the specs:
2012 Ultralight
Alien Ultralight, Light Years Ahead!
- 3.5 lbs.
- 31.5 axle to axle
- 7 brace height
- Draw weights 50#, 60#, 70#
- Draw length modules from 27 to 30
- Shooting String 54 5/8
- Cables (2) 36 1/8

2012 XT

The Rytera Alien XT was built with the hunter in mind.
This bow is 33 1/4 ATA with a very forgiving 7 1/4 inch
brace height. We also utilized the bridged riser design
for added stability and accuracy.

Well, I couldn't wait. Sold the old bow today, and went to the bow shop this evening and came home with the new X. I only shot a few times at the shop, but this thing is amazing. I will get some pictures up tomorrow, since my wife bought a new camera and I can't figure out how to work it. I really like the vista camo. I put my QAD LD rest on it, got a tru glo 4 pin sight, and x-coil stab.

Very nice sir. Liked mine when I had it, plan to pick up another Rytera some time in the future I think. Once the Bengal came the X sat dormant for too long for me to justify hanging onto it.

What a difference 10 years of technology can do to a bow. Not that I have shot that many, but I just got done shooting to get my sight set. Aside from having such little gaps between the pins, I managed to do some damage to my arrows. I know Barry says it is not the bow, but the indian, and I agree to a point on that, but this bow certainly helps this indian make a better shot. I was shooting groups of three as I always do to get my pins set. Once they are set, I take one field point off and put a broad head on 1 of the 3. I lost 1 nock to a field point at 20 yards, and I cut a nock in half and cut the arrow with a broad head at 40 yards. The nocks are pretty cheap, but that arrow wasn't fun to ruin. Very happy with this bow.
