We finally got them in today, still waiting on some of the white bows but if the quality is anything like this one then we are in good hands. As stated by others the 2013 Alien is much more quiet than the previous Aliens X and Z. I have to finish her up as this one will be my personal bow, straight out of the box it feels great. Tomorrow I will finish tuning on the drawboard, walk back and decide on the arrows I will get the best flight with. To break in the strings I used GT 22's since it will be used for some outdoor 3D, they flew ok but I will really know after final tune if I will stay with them or the Pro Hunters. Straight out of the box with a D-loop, peep and factory bowjax on the string I was getting 312 with 29 inch draw 63lb draw. This should come up a few fps after final tuning. Here are a few pictures, as you can see the rest isnt connected fully and I still have a few finishing touches to do.
