Which press does everyone recommend?
Everybody won’t recommend the same one
I have an apple but I’d go with the last chance EZ green if I could do it over.
We have found our EZ press quite user friendly. Like the name, it’s easy to use!
I've had a ez green for about 10 years, best archery related purchase i've made
Last Chance Deluxe. Buy the draw board feature a well. Can do it all.
I've used the Bowmaster press for years. It's not as user friendly as a bench top model, but it's cheap and I can throw it in a bag and take it anywhere I go.
I use a homemade copy of the EZ press and a separate homemade draw rack. The EZ design seems pretty fool proof and accommodating.
Bowmaster for the average guy who presses a couple times a year
Why does that not surprise me, Ambush! I’m betting there’s probably a couple of improvements on it, as well! ;-)
I’ve got a Bowmaster that goes with me on every trip. Fortunately, I’ve only had to break it out a couple of times. Definitely worth every penny I paid for it. I’ve also got an Apple at home, that works ok. I’m a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” kinda guy, and know just enough to get by, as far as working on my bow, goes.
I have used many presses over the years. The EZ Green is the simplest and extremely effective.
Another vote for the EZ Green.
Ez Green and a walk out basement ;) Real efficient if your trying to yoke tune an older Hoyt. Used a bowmaster for years. If your a tuner you need a good press.
I bought a ez green with a draw board. Thanks everyone!
I'm with Bou. I don't switch bows every year and rarely use a press more than 1x per year, so Bowmaster works for me and doesn't take up half the garage. But I could see the benefit of a larger press if you constantly tinker and set up new bows.
