I have one and I never leave home without it!!its not hard to use.once you get the hang of it its easy.just take your time and you'll let it down one notch at a time which gives you time to keep everyting in place!!Does anybody use one of those Ratchet bow presses? I am looking for a portable press to get. I just wondered with the ratchet one how do you hold the string tight to keep the string and cables in the tracks of the cams and let down the ratchet strap?
