    Default Information about Alien Z

    Hello everybody.

    First, i would like to apologize my english, i'm a french archer.

    Since 6months, i'm the new owner of a Rytera Alien Z. The bow was bought used.

    I have many problems and i hope you can give me solutions.

    1-Actually, the draw weight is 50-60#. Is it possible to buy just riser in 40-50# ? If yes, at what price ?
    2-Is it possible to buy new module because my lower module is damaged due to draw stop screw ? If yes at what price ?
    3-The module screw are rusted. Is it possible to replace all the screw by stainless stell screw ?

    Thansk for your answer.

    The actual DW range on that bow is 45-60 pounds, Martins have a 15 pound range. If you want to go lighter than 45 pounds, you could order a new set of limbs direct from Barnsdale, I'm thinking that you would need a 155 deflection.The modules are the same on both the 1.5 and 2.0 cams. The same modules
    are also used on the Nitro 1.5 and 2.0 cams as well as the Hybrix 3.0 cam. You can replace the mod screws with stainless ones.

    Actually I just sold my Alien Z. It was a 35-50 model with Barnesdale limbs and the deflection number was 175. To replace the modules you'll have to order a new pair, They are part number 3017. List price is $77 so I would try to find a set on EBay. If you order Martin limbs they will have a different deflection number and I don't know what it would be. If you talk to Brandon at Martin just tell him what you want the bow to peak at and he should be able to pick the right limb deflection (possibly 1L).

    Yes with 2.0's Barnsdale 175's gives you 35-50#.
    With 1.5's you need Barnsdale 195's.

    Glad you brought that up. I always forget that my bows have the 1.5 cam. When I first got my Z it had 175 limbs on it and peaked at 54.6#. This was with 15 twists added to the string and 5 twists taken out of the cables. I traded with another member and got another set of 195 limbs. Both my Nemsis bows (2011 and 2012) cam with 195 limbs. I keep forgetting that there is about 7# difference between the cams. Not everybody is draw length challenged like me.
