I am in the market for a new bow press.
Want to know what everyone use.
I was thinking about the Apple Pro Hercules Bowpress
is this a good one for the Hoyt Split Limbs...
because that is the only bow my family and friends have
and I would like a good bow press for the Hoyts...

I know the New Sure Loc is nice that it is too pricy for me...
want to stay under $300

Thank You All

There are several good presses out there, if you are after the correct Apple for Hoyt Tec risers... then the model #0299 is the correct press. It is designed for the Hoyt...

I have one; but if I were working on any of the other brands I would buy the Surloc X-press... it will fit any bow well....

One of the members of AT... Walks with a Gimp...:D sells what looks like a great press also... especially for those who do not need a fixed Pro model...

I have a apple easy bow press, it's alright, but I'd prefer one that doesn't use a rope. But for the price, I cann't complain, I did however have to shave the rubber rollers so the limbs fit down in the bottom, I screwed up the finish on my razortec along the edges where the limbs didn't seat properly because of the slight angle the rubber had.But I don't use mine much, just put new strings on both bows, so I shouldn't be using that much.

I purchased a hydra press for my hoyt, however it will fit other bows. It's a well built press and the price is right Here is their web site (www.geocities.com/hydrapress/

I second the nomination for HydraPress. Got mine last week and it's great.

Be very careful here folks... Hoyt Tec risers if not pressed correctly will bend... Hoyt is very explicit as to the correct manner; any deviation can and most likely will result in a bent riser.... :eek:

Javi, is there any way to tell if a riser is bent, other than sending it back to Hoyt?

The HydraPress for 'Tec risers only puts pressure on the limbs.

send a pm to Toad 400. Jason makes an awesome press that will press almost every bow out there at a very reasonable cost. Just sent my m/o to him today and can't wait to get it.

Hoyt USA was going to design their own bow press to address the bent risers.
But when Sure-Loc brought their press out last year, Hoyt decided they couldn't improve on the design and recommends the Sure-Loc press for their bows.
