I was wondering if anyone on here has a bench mounted bow press and what would be a good one to bye? Than you for you're input. This is by far the most informative and helpful forum I have been on.

Welcome BrettFess.......I have the Bowmaster portable with split lim adapters and works great for me. Apple makes a good bench mounted press.

The EZ Press would be my choice. I have had one for 3 1/2 years now and really like it.

I will own one of these in the not so distant future....

I have the Bowmaster portable...It is probably the best thing since sliced bread when you are in a pinch on a hunting trip in the middle of nowhere. For home use, it just plain sucks!!!! .

Yep.

I bought the bowmaster portable so I could install some finger guards on my son's genesis youth bow. I've always wanted to have one for those just in case moments. I didn't read the directions and it turns out you have to buy an adapter for split limb bows. The bowmaster with the adapter was about $90 with tax at Bass Pro and I just couldn't justify the cost. I took the bow up to the archery shop where I bought it and they installed the finger guards for free.

Ya, the bowmaster is a little tricky to use especialy with the split limb adaptors.......there are times where it seems you need three hands.

I ordered my EZ Green press yesterday...I had a stupid moment and now I'm re stringing one of my bows sooner than expected. I himmed and hawed between that one and the Bow Time Machine. Found the EZ Green for $380 and free shipping so that helped me decide.

Apple edge, this press works on any bow.
