Alright guys. I’m looking to buy a bow press. I want to start doing all my work myself. Not many shops in my area and forget the box stores. I’m not new to archery at all. Been shooting for 20 years. Looking for something simple and easy to use. Thanks!

I just bought the last chance ez press and love it. Could've bought the ez green and saved some money but the wheel is pretty nice when changing from short ata to long

Bowmaster is most affordable and fairly simple to use.
Used mine on first bow with no issue. With that said, I wish
I had just saved the money and bought an EZ green from the
start. You're gonna be in and out of it frequently for tuning.
Got mine from Fulcrum for roughly $375 and they do pop
up in classifieds. A must if you're doing all your work.

I used a portable press for like 10 years just to tune my bow and my brothers bow and it worked ok but was slow. Just bought an ez press with wall mount and glad I did. Now retuning after string changes will be way faster.

I got the ez green and added the wheel and a archery design drawboard and lca bow vice. Been doing mine and a friends bows for five years now.

Last Chance, aany of their presses, bar nobody. Portable presses that are recommend are for quick minor field fixes when a real press is not available.

I am very satisified with my BTM press, but they are currently not in production. If you find a used one, you won't likely regret it.

I also recommend any of the LCA EZ presses as far as simplicity and ease of use goes. The EZ Green is really all an individual needs with either the Archery Design or LCA drawboards. I upgraded to the EZ Deluxe which includes the wheel and allows me to pivot the press to vertical position which makes it easy to work on the string without a bow vice. Costs a bit more but I think it was worth it.

I used a Bow Master for years and it worked but was really slow and cumbersome. Four or five years ago I bought an EZ Green and that is so much better, it was a lot of money to spend for something I only use a handful of times a year but was well worth it.

Not sure what bow you are shooting, but just a suggestion, especially if you have a newer bow, check with you the manufacturer and see what they recommend or you may forfeit your warranty.

Another vote for the last chance presses. I have the EZ green and have never regretted that purchase!! LCA also has great customer service if need be.

My thoughts exactly. The EZ Green would have been fine but having the Deluxe with drawboard mounted to a 10 drawer tool chest gives me storage, press, vice and drawboard all in one compact unit. My bank account hated me for it but "oh well". Buy once cry once as they say.
