View Full Version : New Alien Z Owner

08-30-2010, 10:02 AM
Hello all. I am the proud owner of a brand new Alien Z and have some questions. I have watched a lot of youtube videos on checking the timing on the nemisis and found from reading that its pretty much the same on the Z. I do have the dual cam 2.0 model. I placed the marks on my cams and at full draw there is a little difference in the position on them. I placed a rest on the bow and let and arrow fly to see how it was gonna shoot and it was extremely loud. Is there a step by step with photos or anything on how to adjust the timing on the Z? Any help would be much appreciated.

Also I keep reading places about the string/serving wearing fast on the modules. What exactly does that mean? Can someone post a picture of where your talking about or explain it to me? I want to keep and eye on it in case. I'm not up to date on archery and have just now gotten back into shooting bows. my last bow purchase was in 1998 and now the Z

i have not found much on the z yet myself what every cam is slow needs to be speed up by putting a twist or two and then check it again

Get on www.archerytalk.com and do a search on "Martin Cat cams--optimum settings". The Hyrix cam is very close to the same cam as the Cats.

I'll have to dig out my camera and take some pics of my cams and modules to explain the cable wear issue and how to alleviate it if it appears. Maybe tomorrow. It's late for this old man and I gotta git up at 5:30am.

Oh, welcome to the Tach Forums. Hope you enjoy your "Z" as much as I do.
Keep in touch. This is a pretty good site with lots of good guys.

Few more

Can someone confirm that this is the 2.0 cam?

Show us the other side of the Cam. The 'string' side does not help at all.

Very nice looking rig you got there. Have fun shooting once you get all your kinks worked out.

I have a Nemisis, and this a 2.0 cam! The cable serving wear is where the cable rolls over on the mod. I had the same problem and called Martin and they took care of the problem before it wore into the strings. If you just got the bow more than likely you will not have that problem, since they had the problem on the earlier model cams. But if your serving is fraying when it rolls over onto the mod, I'd give them a call and see what they say. Good luck.

No need at all. You already got the answer. But it is always more interesting to look at the cable side. The cable side proved information about the module which will affect the drawcycle. In case of the Martin Cams you can see also which Cam you have.
