Just enter another value ( I use 30% because of the size of photo I have my camera set to ) click tab and enter the same number, click OK, then save as what ever name you want ( I save mine in My Pictures ) Now that you're resized, you can now post the pic. This part is easy, so Save this link

    Click imagelinky, browse for you pic, select it and click upload. When its uploaded 3 text bars will appear, I usually use the forum link, highlight it ( left click and drag the cursor across the text ), and copy. Return to where you want to post your pic, say whatever you want and hit enter ( to give your self some room ) and paste in you link, now click post
    Thanks for the great instructions! I will give it try this evening...hopefully I can get it to work!

    My other Rytera's have the straight grip.

    I have a 2011 Martin Onza 3 and a 2012 Martin Pantera.

    Here are the dimensions (width is measured looking from behind the bow, thickness is measured looking at the side of the bow):

    2013 Alien: W=0.815" T=1.195" (leather on both sides)

    2012 Pantera: W=0.815" T=1.165" (leather on one side)

    2011 Onza 3: W=0.800" T=1.160" (leather on one side)

    My guess is that the Onza 3 has a slimmer grip as the bridged riser gives the bow added ridgidity and the mass is not needed in the grip area.

    Hope this helps!

    The bow draws smoother than my Alien-X's or Alien-Z's. It seems like it is the limbs that are contributing to the smoother draw, along with the bearings in the cams.

    The bow is more compact as the twin limbs (11") are 2" shorter than Martin's single limb (13") design. This allows the riser to be designed with less deflex and still have a 7" brace height.

    That helps, if the grip is matching up with the Pantera - then it most likely matches the Bengal which I have. The grip on the Rytera was something I didn't fully like after I got my hands on the Bengal. Excited to see more of these and hear what people thing about them. I really want to get another bow, but will have to wait it out a while I think.

    I am not fully on-board with the Saddleback grip yet. I love my Alien-X's and Alien-Z's and the way they feel. It is probably because I am so used to shooting that grip. With the Saddleback, it feels like my hand is getting forced up and into the arrow shelf.

    Like I said, it is probably something that I have to get used to.

    Nice bow, congrats! It is the bow I think I want next.... It'll have to wait though

    I myself prefer the saddleback over the older Martin/Rytera grips. I think it is less torky and allows for a more natural hold.

    Did you ever get the specs? I know we got off topic here. I don't know how different the geometry has on these but JRH60 (on AT) or Archerx7 (Jim - same guy) is an Alien guru imo and would probably have that for you. Otherwise a call to Joel is your best bet.
