We finally got them in today, still waiting on some of the white bows but if the quality is anything like this one then we are in good hands. As stated by others the 2013 Alien is much more quiet than the previous Aliens X and Z. I have to finish her up as this one will be my personal bow, straight out of the box it feels great. Tomorrow I will finish tuning on the drawboard, walk back and decide on the arrows I will get the best flight with. To break in the strings I used GT 22's since it will be used for some outdoor 3D, they flew ok but I will really know after final tune if I will stay with them or the Pro Hunters. Straight out of the box with a D-loop, peep and factory bowjax on the string I was getting 312 with 29 inch draw 63lb draw. This should come up a few fps after final tuning. Here are a few pictures, as you can see the rest isnt connected fully and I still have a few finishing touches to do.

They had a hard time getting the riser's painted/ dipped this year, Martin changed painters so it pushed almost all of the bows back a month or so. Everything except the Prowler is available now.
Sweet looking rig. I really tried to find one, but even contacting Martin was no help. A customer shouldn't have to bust their hump to buy a bow from a company.

Hey almost exactly like mine haha, mine was pulling 71.8 lbs when I pulled it out of the box and it was a freakin bear to draw. Congratz yourself on the new bow as well.

What's the opinion......did they go cheaper or more quality with the change...?

Thats cool you got 71.8 #, I ordered mine at 70 and they gave me 69.4# but I'm happy with it. I got my 2011 alien x which is 72.6#, now thats a tough bow, smooth to draw and quick.

I go with better quality for sure, this thing is mint all around. I can not find a single blemish on it that is why I took the high quality pics so everyone could see. I wish it had a clear coat on it although.
