    Bow press for Bowtech Invasion?

    I assume you can use the limb tip style presses such as the EZ Press on the Bowtech Invasion. Would like to know who knows if these style presses will work on the Invasion. I have pressed the Bowtech Specialist with mine but i know the Invasion has preloaded limbs like the PSE Xforces. I have pressed the Xforces with no problems but with the axle on the Invasion outside of the limb tips i want to make sure. I just placed the fingers up against the outside of the axle housing on the Specialist and it worked fine. Any information on this would be appreciated.

    Yep, the EZ press is approved by both Bowtech and PSE for the Invasion and the X forces.

    The EZ press works and there is a video of the X-Press being used on the preloaded limb bows, using the attachments.

    Three of the Apple presses will work. The Eliminator, Evolution, and the economy Edge

    You could use the Nite Hawk press. Go to www.nitehawkarchery.com

    Attached is a picture one of my customers sent.

    This press sells for a little more then the cost of an attachment you'll need for other presses.

    Now we know how all of these " my limbs broke " threads are started. That press leverages near the center of the limb. A big NO NO.

    In that photograph, the Nite Hawk is between the tips of the bow limbs and is comprised of the red fabric, the cylinder to the left of that red fabric and the attachments on the tips of each of the bow's limbs. The thing the bow is resting on is something else altogether - it looks like a home made bow vice to me - it is not part of the Nite Hawk bow press.

    That press leverages from the middle of the limb, not a good idea.

    All of the Pac-Presses will do the preloaded designs easily. I know people press the xforces with inlines; Even my inlines, but I still don't recommend it to people when they ask. It's just stretching a nifty design too far. Accident waiting to happen. Good for most bows; just not all bows. Of coarse this is just my opinion on the matter.
