I'm a novice at replacing bow strings but after putting away my Ravin 29X still cocked I had to recover from the disastrus results. Ordered the portable press both long and short screws. It was easy and extremely safe to use. I now can easily adjust for any string creep that occurs in the future.
This press is easy to use and isn't in the way when changing cables and strings. A much better price than ravins press. You don't have to worry about voiding ravins warranty, because they won't warranty anything anyway. This press is solid and holds the bow perfectly. It will not slip. Very professionally built and will outlast any bow it needs to press. It's a great crossbow press.
