I personally like the Xpress but, the linear types do a great job.

The Apple Evolution, the Xpress, or the EZ Press.
My vote is the EZ Press only for ease of use. The EZ will work on all bows if you get the adaptors for bows like the Bear Attack, Bear Carnage, and the PSE Omen. Price $600
The X Press will do the same with its adaptors for the same bows but takes longer to set up. Price $900
The Apple will work on all bows without adaptors but takes a while to set up as well. Price $1,250
So cost to value,, The EZ Press wins, and its the most commonly used in shops today because of these facts.

I have an EZ, with first generation "fingers". I don't have a newer parallel bow just yet, but expecting one within a few weeks. I'll try to rmember to post my findings but remind me if I forget...

I have a Hydra-Press, I've only pressed 3 bows on it but it has been fine.

I like, and bought, the EZ but it had the older steel fingers with only 2 adjustable. Had to spend another $100 for the new aluminum fingers so I could have adjustment on all 4 corners. I've pressed every thing from an old Jennings (non-parallel) to a Mathews Monster (over-parallel) with no probs.
