I still have one LoL.
Mine is the 75yd model (pocket sized), my buddy had the 600yd one (much bigger!).
Those pics are of my 2009 hunting Alien with the factory strings, it has different color ones now (see pic).
However, for the latest strings I ordered for my 3D Aliens, I have returned to the...
Curiously enough, the oldest of my 2 '09 Alien bows (one of the first batch that originally came with silver finish mods and a straight string stop rod), although the limb sticker say's 45-60, peaks...
Handed as per the shooter holding the bow (right hand side opposite side of riser to arrow).
As far as I know, the Hybrix cams were not marked with the size, it is the shape of the...
Definately correct on the limb deflection, 135's on a Nemesis with 2.0 cams are rated 45-60 (according to my charts), 130 should be higher.
Possiblity of the limbs being mismarked?
I only have...
Whichever cam is advanced, twist up the cable on the outer edge post of that cam to take it back.
Alternatively, take twists out of the outer cable of the opposite cam (depends on where you are with...
Dang, that's just...WOW!
Glad everything else on the bow is Ok, hopefully Martin will get you the bearings asap.
My 2010 X thew a very small splinter right on the edge of the bottom limb after a few months.
Martin reolaced the limbs under warranty (with Barnsdales as per the originals) been good ever since....
Breath being held:D:D:D:D
Deflection 115 will give you 55-70lb draw weight.
Like I said, if you want info from BS, you will be waiting a while, and if you do get a problem they ain't that helpful.:mad:
I only get stuff from them if no one else stocks it, and only if I can...
If you are waiting for a reply from Bowsports, you might be waiting awhile.
Their customer service blows!
I would suggest using Merlin Archery as a better alternative, maybe try calling them and...
I assume you are somewhere here in England as you give the UK cost.
I know what you mean about the trad folks looking down their noses at compound shooters, I am known as 'The Dark Lord' in my club...
Actually, probably best classed as a 50 to 65lb bow.;)
just as a maybe interesting story, I have a AlienX bow from the first batch produced in 2009 (bought as a leftover bow from the main dealer...
Yes, you need to replace it, and no, I would not shoot the bow until you do.
Those studs are there to reinforce the limb tip.
There is a chance that shooting without it could cause the limg to...
I use a product that over here is called Spirit Wipe.
It is used in the auto industy to wipe down car paint work prior to spraying.
It is not that expensive and a gallon lasts for ever, I am still...
On the bows I own that have doglegged rods, I do rotate them to give enough clearance for the fletching but the least amount of sideways pull to the cables.
Any reduction of the sideways pull has...
Great video, looking good for the future!:D
Yippee, mods arrived in the post this morning:D
All is once more right with the world;)
If the shop had them in stock, but no one wanted to buy them, they could sit there for 2/3 years no problem.
Not every shop clears thier inventory every year.
For $200 I would have...
Got it all sorted.
Been corresponding with John Nelson in customer services (very helpful).
I am getting a set of mods under warranty.:D
The excellent service of Martin Archery continues.:cool:
Yeah, got the short straw again LoL.
Going to call them tonight (my time) and see if I can talk to someone.
The Hybrix cams regardless of age were all the same, the 2009 mods will fit the later cams.
I switched the old silver finish mods (fitted to the first batch of Alien bows made) to my 2010 3D bow...
Well, 2 years almost to the day it has happened again.:mad:
Checking over one of my bows I noticed one of the mods is...
