Full-Size Press - Affordable Price

Full-Size Press -- Affordable Price
By Daniel Beraldo

Since 1992, Apple Archery has been providing the archery industry with top-end repair tools and products. Today, not only can you find Apple products throughout the best archery pro shops and in the hands of the top enthusiasts in the country but also in the beginning archer's workshop as well.

Whether you're the full-service shop looking to work on different brands of bows, one after another, all day long, or the beginning bowhunter looking to take the next step in your bow tuning, Apple Archery has everything you need to set up and work on today's newest compound bows. In 2009, Apple Archery introduced the new Edge Economy Bow Press.
With an affordable price tag of just $299, the full-size Edge is engineered to eliminate limb twist and do most major setup work needed to get shooting. Constructed of steel with a powder coat finish, the Edge offers limb tip and conventional compression press options for perfect compatibility with different limb styles. It also features adjustable limb pocket posts for long and short risers, and for those Bowtech shooters, presses all center pivot compound bows.

The press is easy to set up and in less than 30 minutes I had it put together and pressing a LimbSaver DZ-30. The press provided plenty of pressure to the limbs and easily allowed me to install a peep sight and tether my drop-away cord through the buss cable. Due to the short length of the beyond parallel limbs on my DZ-30, I chose to use the limb tip compression system.
Each limb tip assembly can be independently adjusted to fit perfectly to the widths of limbs on all bows. The conventional compression system works best for bows with longer limbs and the adjustable press arm allows custom limb/post placement for safe use and perfect pressing.
