    Im thinking of converting my alien z to nitrous b cams 36" ata and 7" bh. Can Any nitrous experts give me a real life max draw length?

    Not with any certainty, without have done it, it's a guess. I can give you a link to the 2005 Nitrous string and draw chart, and you'll see how each riser model's ( the M numerals on the far left ) geometry affects draw lenths. I'd guess that you'll get at least 28" draw, could be more.

    Be sure and measure the distance between the limb forks. If your Z has Cat or Hybrix cams the limb forks are probably narrower than the Nitrous cam. About 1/10" if I recall right. You'd have to machine or file/sand the limb forks to get the proper gap. It can be done though. A few years ago somebody on here did it. Might have been Simon (Montalar).

    Thanks so much for the info. I'm thinking about putting it together and just seeing what happens. I may have to just try to round up some c cams if possible.

    Yes Skip only "C" cams will work for you.
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.
