It is very fast, one or two clicks after the tabs contact the limbs and it's pressed. The force needed to press this 60 pound bow is only moderate pressure with one finger on the end of the handle.

Default Looks like Nebraska

Looks like Nebraska in the background? I hunt on the Platte in Kearney. I've been looking for a way to press a Guardian. That's cool, but I don't think I could pull off building it. Anyone know of a press out there for sale that will press the Guardian. I agree with you on not wanting to back in and out limb bolts. It's a pain if you need to make minor adjustments here and there.
