Not a bad press. It is hard to let a bow all the way out with it.

For a little more I would personally go with the Hydra Elite.

I have one that is similar to it made by A.C.E and it takes some work to let one all the way down with it. I actually have to use a ratchet strap once I let the press all the way out, I put the strap on the limbs and tighten just enough to flex the limbs a little. Then take out of press and let all the way down. Reverse for putting it back in.

DB,
I have used a bunch of different presses, including X-Press, Apple, and EZ Press and several others as well.

IMHO you are better off buying a quality press and being done with it. If I was going to purchase only 2 I would consider. The X-Press or the EZ Press.

I currently have an EZ Press and Love it.

Dan

I am sure it does work but if I was going to spend that kind of money the Apple would be the last one I would recommend.

Buddy looking for a press on a budget. All those guys from Nebraska afford all the best. Will agree the eze press is nice. Something under $300.00

DB, I'm not from Nebraska, try Southern IL. I have hunted Nebraska the last 4 years.

It's kind of like the Ol' Texaco man used to say. Pay Now or Pay Later!

All I'm saying is a guy should save his money a little longer and buy a quality press. I never heard anyone say they were sorry they spent the extra 2 bills.

Heck! i didn't like it either, but I am glad I did now. Somethings are just worth it.

There are good presses for less. Sometimes an archer may use a press once or twice a year tops. Hydra-press looks like it could get the job done.

Wheres the all the pictures from Illinois

Got a cable press that I paid $40 dollars for, plus the split limb adapters. Works for strings, cables, peeps, etc. Can't break a bow completely down with it, but it is portable. Thinking of building my own when I get the time, and find a design I like.

For me there is no reason to ever use another press than the Surloc X press. But I donít own a production style shop working on many different bows each day; possibly if I did I would want an EZ-press as an additional press for the convenience.
With the exception of the new past parallel bows most can be pressed enough to change a string or set a peep with a simple cable press like the Bowmaster if one uses common sense and doesnít push the limitation of such a design. Iíve carried one in my kit for every hunt and tournament Iíve ever attended for many years and on occasion Iíve even used it with good results..
As for a cheap way out when trying to find a press, anyone with a welder and a chop saw can easily and legally duplicate the best press on the market. The problem comes from selling the copiesÖ that is stealing... and I got no use for a thief

I saved for quite a while for my EZ. If he can at least get something that presses in the same way, I think he'll be set for quite a while.

The local shop I help out at has 5 different presses and everybody loves the EZ-Press.

Find a local welder and you can build your own EZ-Press for easily under $200 !

I have permission to hunt 120 acres and share that with 5 other Bowhunters, granted I put in much more time in a stand than the others. I think there are 10 outfitters in my home county. They have lots of ground leased up. It's just the way it is now.

They sure are not helping it DB. They are all about the $$ and if it wasn't for hunters and land owners in particular the State would really screw it up.

DB, have you looked at the toad press or the sootballs press on AT? I'm thinking of getting a toad press soon. Its $300.00 with a floor stand.

The sootballs press is great but slightly more than $300.00. I had one for a while and should not have sold it.

I've used my Omni Press on my HOyt Vectrix and my Ultra Mag, no problem. Bought mine new off ebay for a little over $100, plus shipping. I believe you'll find them on AT. also.

I had an Omni but it puts a tad bit of stress on the riser. I sold it and bought a Toad linear. It is a great press and you can get it shipped for $250. Great press that will press any bow and it works on the same principle as the EZ press. Jason is a great guy to deal with.

I just have the basic EZ Press with a couple sets of fingers. So far it has pressed everything I have put in it with ease.

You can't get the Sootballs press anymore, he had to quit making them cause EZ press threatened legal action.
I got one of the last ones and am so glad I did.............cheaper and better made than the EZ press and has a draw station/ bow vise as well.
I have used the A.C.E press that sells on ebay and like it....solid and works well.

I've found the standard EZ will not handle a Martin Scepter4 w/ Elite limbs... the A/A is too long to fit in teh press.

I agree DB...The EZ press is the best out...I have an X-press and an EZ press and the EZ press is faster more solid and now being able to press crossbows can press anything with ease and quickness.....

You must have two seperate presses to press crossbows. I agree its a good press. But honestly that $4000.00 press is fine and lots of great things about it. I like pressing bows on the bottom of the cams.

The shops I visit complain about having to drop 4 to 5 hundred on a good press. I don't see very few shops dropping 4 grand on a press, but hey they can always hope

I am sure it is nice. It should be!
