I would recommend you consider the value of your warranty before going off spending a couple bills on a press... most manufacturers only warranty their bows if they are serviced by authorized dealers... something to consider.
You don't need a press to change a string on a tear drop bow unless it's a very old single tear drop.DOH! I can't buy one of those because I'm on fixed income. All I need to do is change out a tear drop style string for a martin Lynx magnum.
HEY! that sounds like it would work!! I can't wait to get my new string now and try that. Even if I wish I'd saved my money and bought a newer bow with a less spongy back wall.Andys right, except how we used to do it was stand on the string and pull upwards on the riser then use your free hand to install the new string on the other teardrops
Please be damm careful. If you are not sure footed or handed get a buddy to help you like andy said. One slip and the thing will dry fire up at your face. make sure the thing isn't loadedHEY! that sounds like it would work!! I can't wait to get my new string now and try that.

Don't tell him that..OMG he might try it.I wouldn't bother buying a bow press at all. I mean, heck, ya got a truck, right? Or at least a car. Just place the bow between a solid wall or tree, and have a buddy back the vehicle up until the bow is pressed. Saves ya plenty of money to buy other stuff.
