    I love my 2012 Bengal...but that Alien looks sweet!!! Looks like a great line of bows for 2013.

    Great looking lineup. Well done Martin and I love the integration of the bow lines...much simpler now. And I agree with Double S, that Diabalo Takedown is what I'll be looking for...wonder what the price tag is. Does anyone recognize the riser?

    I was wrong about the quad limbs. The new compound bows look nice -I like the most the Alien, but what really attracts my attention are the trad Diablos (especially the take down) and the El Dorado.

    Hoping retail prices aren't too crazy with some of the new changes. Feel that Martin has always had the best price range for the market.

    I like the line up but hope that in the next addition FY14 that they might bring back the Fire Cat 400/Cougar and or Silencer. I really like my Fire Cat. Maybe sold and or split limb. Wow! Already wishing.

Really considering pulling the trigger on one, since I've wanted an Onza since the 2011 series. I like the Alien, but with the one I had, just loved the Bengal more and feel it might be similar, but with the different grip and addition of the new VEMs ... that might totally change that bow.
    I'm glad they kept the Prowler personally. However, I don't see any difference from the 2012 model, so I will probably buy one of those instead. The only other bows that I like are the Bengal, the Phantom and the Blade which both seem almost the same? Just a personal thing, but I don't like the little green dots they put in a lot of the risers. Seems like a corny marketing thing to me and I'd really prefer not to have them.

    Its funny all the attention the Diablo takedown is getting, only because I've been toying with the idea of getting a Saber take down and when I saw the Diablo I went "well hello there!"

    Its a sweet looking rig, like the Rytera line went in on the traditional piece as well! Kudos Martin

    I noticed this and thought the same thing. I've been intrigued by a semi-traditional setup like the Jaguar/Saber takedowns.

    When do you think we could expect the MSRP listings? Need to get an idea of how many jellybeans I need to start saving

    All this talk about the new lineup and nothing about the seeker? What a strange looking bow but the adjustable brace height is just cool IMO! Not to mention the fact that the thing is awesome looking.

    i know it says rytera series but damn it is a good looking bow!

    well done on your new products Martin Archery!
