Well..... Santa has one headed this way, hard to pass up a Rytera at those prices. It's advertised as an X but has the specs of the Z, will see when it gets here. Really looking forward to the longer ata with the Acu-Trak. I have never shot a smoother cam on a compound.
Congrats. Pictures will be needed.;):cool:
Martin was getting rid of old stock. They made some Franken Bows and sold them on KM hut at the end of the old Martin era and called them Limited.
Anyone try to put Nitrous C on an Alien Z? I have a Nitrous-x setup sitting around, but I don't know if they would even fit or what the DL or poundage would be. How would it compare to the old nitrous Slayr specs, considering the ATA and BH are pretty close? Alien Z with Nitrous X; that would be sweet if you ask me.
For what it's worth, I have bought three bows from the KM guys over the years and they have been great. One bow was missing a part and they shipped it out super fast. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a bow from them and now that I see a bunch of lefties for sale, I'll likely pick one up.
I have bough several item from them in the past without issue. Had one hiccup that was taken care of very fast & professional. I was after a Z with the 36" ata and didn't notice the discrepancy in the listing until I made payment.
You Alien guys, is there an advantage of the roller guard over the slide or the other way around? Any preference of one over the other X or Z?
Nutty, I just sold my 2010 Z a couple months ago. It had the roller guard. I had no problems with it and no cable wear, but I thought it pulled the cables to the side more severely than I liked. What I did was remove it, reamed the front screw hole in the riser (just a little) and reinstalled the roller bracket with a 1/8" spacer between the riser and bracket at the hole I reamed. This changed the angle of the bracket so the rollers were closer to the center line of the bow. Now whether this did anything of value is up for debate. I never really scrutinized it, but think it reduced side load on the cables and the resulting limb twist that causes cam lean.
The bow was certainly a shooter and I think I should have kept it and sold one of Nemisis instead.
There used to be a user on here that installed Nitrous cams on his Scepter, I believe. The present limbs are too narrow between the forks for the Nitrous cams. What he did was file and sand them to make the Nitrous fit. I had measured and the forks were closer by just about 1/10".
Got the bow today and it is the wrong one. Supposed to be 55-70, good looking riser. Tosi, I think you are right. I was hoping the limbs were marked with the Rytera logo but they both say Martin & the riser is Rytera all the way. Measured the ata while I had it out for pictures and it was only 33". That is a Martin quality control issue in my opinion, unacceptable to be out that far.
Got the email out to the seller in hopes of clearing up the issue. Also hoping the next one will be a Z. The description had conflicting specs in it and I didn't notice it until it was paid for.
NN sorry that the wrong one showed and hope you get the 70lbs limbs. I will say that the Accu-Trak cams were one of Martin best along with the old Nitrous. Can't wait to see the results once you get the bow you ordered.
Kinda frustrating, every new Martin I have bought has not been what was ordered. My Firecat 360 was rigged up with a string change to make the weight I ordered. My Ridge Hunter was advertised with cloaked cams and came black, and now this. If I didn't love the draw cycle of the Acu-Trak I'd go back to Bowtech. Working a deal with another guy on an Oneida Extreme Eagle. Hopefully it will pan out, I have a love hate relationship with them.
