    Default IkesOutdoors 2012 Alien XT review..

    Well looks like ike got his hands on a '12 alien xt. although a little long vid , its a pretty solid review, and gives Rytera/Martin credit for continually improving the performance of their bows. I would have to say that out of a scale of 1-10 the XT should score at least a solid nine . http://www.youtube.com/user/ikesoutdoors?feature=watch

    it should help someone pull the trigger on the purchase of one.

    But i am disappointed they havent been able to get the noise down over the past few years which makes me think i will have to go for a hoyt if i want something really quiet.
    Can't seem to understand what people like this are smoking. "Oh...something's not right, better get a hoyt!" I think the noise that we are picking up from that is the string stop. Think a few others have said the same when they have got their 2012s. I have Limbsaver bumper that I'm going to slap on the Bengal when it comes.

    Overall I really like this bow and that is mainly because I really dig the Onza. I just love what they did with the riser machining in the XT though.

    The best way to see if it is loud is shoot next to another bow. That's what I did. I found out that is was no louder than the bow next to me. Being in the string business we have found many ways to quiet a bow and even more than the normal ways. Timing slap is one major noise. Adjust it right and it goes quiet.

    the best way to record sound is to pay the 300 or 400 bucks for a real decibel meter and measure it in a controlled environment . i mean look, they cant just shoot it and go this thing is shootin 310+ etc, they use a chrono. when a athlete jumps a sand pit in the olympics, they get a measuring tape and "measure" it, the announcer doesnt grab a mike and go "thats 15" farther than that guy that jumped here last week " . ive heard these guys shoot bows inside metal barns and at the shot the sound echoes and then the reviewer says, "man this thing is super quiet"! when it sounded like a dump gate slamming on the back of a dirt truck.
    all in all tho i thought it was a favorable review with the exception of pointing out some flaws that existed on some of the older bows he had tested in the past.

    Seriously? This kid is ridiculous and speaking as a scientist, his review is hardly scientific. Purely opinion, and you know what those are like!!!

    Sorry it's not a Bowtech...Ike!!
