Crossbow press?

I have a Ten-Point recurve crossbow. Is it necessary to purchase a press, or can I use the rope one I have for my compound?

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.

Re: Crossbow press?

If you got the recurve limb you might be okay,if you got the compound type You better get a press,you could get hurt not using the right tool.

Re: Crossbow press?

This may work. http://www.keystonecountrystore.com/Arch...BOT2537205.html
This is one reason I bought an Excalibur.However you guys have Tenpoints.I have no idea if this is safe or not.Seems as if you may need a stronger ratchet strap than they include though.

Re: Crossbow press?

$420 for that?......$5 worth of tube steel, a crank and four casters...I better warm up the welder!

But I guess this is the great caviat to owning a crossbow with cams..You almost HAVE to have a press if you are doing a lot of shooting unless you like running to the bowshop for new servings every couple hundred shots.

Ten Point has a stringing aid just like the Excalibur, only it's made of steel cable. I can get one for you if you want.

Re: Crossbow press?

There is a press for the Compound crossbows. It's the Rocky Mountain Turnbuckle Crossbow press.
The Turnbuckle Cross Bow Press can easily and safely compress strung or unstrung cross bows up to 300 lbs of draw weight with axle to axle lengths between 24" and 30". Works on solid or split limb crossbows. We have them for $94.99

I have the Turnbuckle Press. Works great on my Horton. Got it at Cabella's on sale for about $70 last spring.
