hello,do you need a bow press to change strings or add twist to strings on a martin bow,i heard you can do this and take down the bow without a bow press!.....thanks for any help............

no you do not need a press.. just back the limb bolts out.. when you do this.. back them out evenly about 1-2 turns each till you get enough tension off the string to change out..you should be able to see the threads of the limb bolt in hte barrel that the bolt screws into.. on my bow when I get the bolts backed out enough that I canjust see the last thread in the barrel it is backed out enough.. hope this helps..
