Since it was foggy/drizzly/cold this morning I thought I would set up the Chrony and shoot my Alien Z thru it just because I hadn't yet and was curious to see how it compared to the Alien X. Well once started I just couldn't stop so:
I shot the same arrow 3 times thru each bow and averaged the numbers.

The arrow: GT XTH 5575 28.25" 368gn total weight.

'10 Alien Z 61.5# 29 --------------290.5fps
'09 Alien X (I) 61.5# 29 ------------295.4fps
'09 Alien X (II) 52.5# 29 ------------281.5fps
'09 FireCat 62# 29 -----------------297.5fps
'94 Firecat M-44G 68# 29 ----------274fps
'93 Firecat M-44XR 50# 29 ---------216.2fps
'95 Ultimate Beast 62# 29 ----------262fps
'92 Pro Safari 62# 29 ---------------245fps
'01 Jaguar Mag 55# 29 --------------258.1fps
'95 PSE ThunderFlite 50# 29 ---------227.2fps
'91 Bear Black Bear 52# 29 -----------216fps
'09 Martin Tiger kid bow 12# 22 ------73fps
'?? Damon Howatt recurve 50#@28 ---153fps

None of it means much but it was better than being in the house. :cool:

What was kind of scary is that some of the old ones just have little flipper rests on them and I shot them all with my release and a carbon arrow.

And the FireCat 'G' max's out at 88# so I shot it at 68# because I was afraid to do it with the limb bolts turned out any farther...

The Martin/Nugent Ultimate Beast is the special one because I shot it for 13 years and took 13 deer with it. I've never had a problem with it and it still shoots great.
My favorite tho is the Alien X.
Actually both of them.
The 60#er has got to be the best all around bow I have ever owned.
The 50# is the most fun to shoot because I can fire hundreds of arrows and still want more.
It actually impressed me the most when I did this chronomania because if I drop about 30gns off my arrow - it will shoot right with the 60# AX.
Still more than enough arrow weight for Deer and Turkeys.
And it is just SO FUN to shoot !!!
