    Very nice NN. The Alien Z is a shooter from what I've read.

    I have both the Alien Z and X. The sight mount is the same distance from the rest mount on both models.
    Roughly 2 5/8" from rest bolt to bottom sight bolt.

    OK, I got to look at a Z belonging to one of my friends, Butch. I measured from the center of the rest mounting bolt to the center of the bottom sight hole. It's 2 1/2". The rest is a Rip Cord Code Red mounted so that the arrow passes approx. thru the rest mounting holes and nocking point is about 1/16" above square. Peep height is 5 3/4" above the nocking point. The sight is mounted in the bottom holes of the bracket with a 4" extension between the bracket and the sight guard. His bottom sight mark is 10 yards with a little room to move lower.

    I'd give you measurements to compare with my Nemisis, but I've been so busy changing things on it that it would be a waste of time. I've been changing my draw length, anchor, peep height and other things lately.

    This is strange, there is clearly a difference as seen in the two pictures. I wonder if it has to do with the roller CCS vs a slide? Maybe the riser is a "second" that was drilled wrong? My peep is the same, 5 3/4" above nocking point. That offset bracket moved it down 3/8" and it's perfect now. All of my sights have 4 mounting holes in the same location. I can only move them forward & back, not up & down.
    I'm not that good tuning rests yet or I'd remove both and show the difference on the bare risers.

    NN, I forgot to mention that although Butch has sight marks out to 50 yards he has shot the bow out to 77 yards with the rear indicator all the way up. Just can't quite hit that 80 yarder holding dead on. And don't forget, this is with a 4" sight extention which spreads the sight marks out.

    I do know that even with my Nemisis set at 40#, 26 1/4" draw, and 275 gr arrow I can still get 60 yards with room left over.
