I bought an EZ Press. I have a new bow that I bought on clearance online. Planning to rig it up and tune it myself. It's my first time not having the pro shop do all the work. I'm kind of excited to work on it myself. I'm hoping to become mostly self-sufficient. Wish me luck.

When I got mine, my butt was sore for a month after repeatedly kicking myself for not getting one sooner.

One of the best decisions a person can make in archery IMO.

A very very good decision . And be warned , it's addictive and you will continue to find stuff you want to try and tweak to make it better .

Question: can you really screw up a bow with a press if you don't know what you're doing?

Yes . But it's really really hard to do with an EZ press . Well let me take that back , it's not as easy to do with an ez press

That's why I'm reluctant. If I had a backup bow to learn how to use the press that would be perfect. I'm not sure if I want to be learning on my only bow and screw something up real bad.

Trust me if it was raining vagina I'd have a pecker fall on my head. I don't have very good luck.

That is pretty funny right there . I'm pretty confident you could figure it out , it's not that difficult . With an EZ press you almost have to try and screw something up . The thing you really need to watch is making sure you get all the strings , cables and yokes seated and making sure they stay there while you are un pressing the bow .
