    I have now.  The one thing that strikes me, and he does mention it in his narrative is the necessity of a a bow vice.  For what I’m pressing, a Conquest, Switchback , old school Martin Cougar and a few friend’s bows, my home made bottle jack unit works just fine.  I can see the value of this unit as a go to for times when you’re away from your shop.

    So could it be used on a Chill? 

    Looking at Lancaster archery’s site they say no.  What say you?

    they talked about that press on Bowhunting TV.  they liked it.  and they used it without a bowvise.  the guy just held it and pulled on the rope.

    if anything, the thing looks FAST.  i would imagine a second pair of hands to make sure the string is in the cam grooves would be a big help.

    Really like the one I have…very simple to use.  Fits in my bow case and has worked great for simple things like installing a peep and adding string silencers.  New to doing my own work so I have a lot to learn yet. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    http://www.lancasterarchery.com/synunm-archery-portable-bow-press.html For what they cost $ 180.00 I sure be sure they are Mathews approved  before voiding  the warranty. It was posted  before and the use of one on a Mathews bow was questionable if I remember.

    Interesting press….But am I missing something???
    There must be more parts than what this press shows on this youtube clip….{#emotions_dlg.typotux}
    Because I do not see how that press will work on a Parallel limb bow….

    And for that money…I will stay with my Night Hawk or Bow Master for portable needs…{#emotions_dlg.mathews_wink}

    Yes a little pricey (well worth it and only took one small power washing job this summer to pay for it) but I researched it and it seemed to be the one for me.  Here are a couple more links.

    This thread gives you a good idea about the press.  http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=1972080&highlight=synunm

    Pressing a newer pse.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTTdGEXuqGw

    Really considered an ezy green press (when I get a shop set up some day I will have an inline press) but could not figure out how to fit it in my bow case for taking it to our bow camp and my 4 day hunt in Indiana.  Case is just to small I guess…haha
