    I guess no one has any thoughts on the new 2013 line up huh? I just heard Martin has been bought because a dealer where I'm at told me he's dropping them due to something idk. But I'll still get an Alien no matter what! I guess I'll get one and make my own assessment thanks Martin owners.

    2011 Alien X, 72.6#, DL-29", Ultrarest HDX, Cypher 5, x-factor sling and stabilizer and limbsavers.

    The Martin dealers in my area don't have any new bows but one, the "blade", they have last years inventory. I seen it but didnt shoot it, its a nice bow but I want the Alien. I will be talking to a guy today about Martin cuz he's a dealer and may order it this weekend. And about who bought them IDK, another dealer told me this yesterday cuz he went to a bow show the other day and checked out their booth. He told me he will no longer carry Martin for reasons he didnt say if any new info I'll pass along but I'm just hearing word of mouth from a pro dealer that went to the show and Martin reps were hush about the information.

    I have been all over the web looking for a new 2013 Martin Bow and they don't seem to be out there.

    I have a 2013 Alien, LOVE it! Smoother than my older Alien-X's and Alien-Z's, and the limbs are 2" shorter which makes for a more compact bow. It also seem to hold steadier as the riser has less deflex. It seems a little lighter than my older Alien-X.

    Really a great shooting bow...probably my favorite at this time!

    Thanks I thought so too, the carbon gives it more of an "Alien" appearance. When I'm done with it hopefully it will have all carbon accessories.

    Well lets me see, a short review of my 2013 Alien.

    The first thing I noticed about the bow was the finish; (Black Carbon) The finish was nice but I wish they would have put a sealer on the riser and limbs but no problems so far.
    Second; when I grabed the grip, it feels alot better than my alien x, it just sits better, feels more natural.
    Third; I looked over the whole bow and I just got to say theirs nothing like it on the market, its own catergory. Very Alienish!
    Fourth; Its very light, at 3.5 pounds it feels better than most other bows I shot. I shot alot of different bows and never shot this at all just bought it, then when I shot it for the first time....man.
    Fifth; the draw, when you pull it back fast...theres a bump but when you pull it slow its just smooth.....all i can say smooth. I'm pulling 70lbs. (69.4#)
    sixth; The let off- I can hold it all day.
    seventh; back wall-is solid rock solid.
    eighth; The shot-the shot was quiet, fast and a little after shock (From a scale 1-5, I give it a 1.75 shock rating) but putting on a NAP black stabilizer reduced it.
    ninth; Speed- I dont have a chrono but I can say I think its faster then my alien x. I will clock it soon but as of now no.
    Now to compare it to the big boys! Well I shot the Experience, creed, chill, some hoyts, elites and bears. All I can say the Alien can hold its own! I paid less for a similar performing bow and the rest went into my accessories.
