Setting up and working on your own bow can be fun and rewarding. As the saying goes, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” If you set up and tune your bow, you will take the time necessary to do it right the first time.
The bow mechanics’ most valuable tool is the bow press. Apple Archery makes a variety of bow presses from economical ones that cost a few hundred dollars to fancier models that cost more than $1,000. With a bow press, you can change your own strings and cables, tie on a string loop, put in a peep sight, and change out limbs, cams and many other tasks. Over time, a press will pay for itself over and over again.
