After two weeks with my new Alien X I thought I would give you an update. I got this thing all set up and shot it clocking 311fps with an IBO arrow at 70# and 28" and feel the string is well shot in. I got comfortable with it but felt I could get more and started tinkering. I waxed the string real good and started playing with the DL mod, DS and cam timing. I tweaked the cables until it was coming off the Dl mods at exactly the same spot ensuring proper cam rotation as well. All said and done my ATA is 31 11/16", BH is 6 15/16", tiller even. its all cranked down and is pulling exactly 70#. I placed the DL mod at 28 1/2" and the DS right on 28". I have two arrows that i am shooting. First is a Carbon Express Maxima 350 weighing 350 grs. These come with the Bulldog Nock collor but i removed them. Shot it through the Pro Crony and got 316fps. Second one is a Gold Tip Ultralight Entrada 400. These weigh 346gr but I put the nock collors from the CXs on and they are now 350gr. Shot it through the Pro Crony and got 316fps again. Accuracy is superb. I have my pins set at 30, 40 and 50. i am grouping inside 2 inches out to 40 and 3-4 inches at 50. It is very smooth and no hand shock but I think its a little loud. I am shooting IBO arrows, with light arrows comes noise. i have nothing on the string or limbs but may get something to try and quiet it down. Maybe Bowjax or Limbsavers haven't decided yet
For anyone looking for a lightweight shorter ATA high performance bow this is the one for you. It is great looking, fast, accurate and smooth. All together a well rounded package and well worth every penny. I could not be happier.
