The clear wrap you see is call white halo serving. Once served tightly it turns clear. If it is loose and turning white, it needs to be replaced. A local pro shop should be able to take it off and re-serve it.

your bow does not need a press.i would not put it in one since it does not need to be pressed.the damage the could be caused from a improper pressing is why i would keep it out of one,back off your limb bolts 2 full turns at a time,top then bottom keeping them even.i crank my bow down all the way and make sure my marks on my limb and limb bolt math up then start backing them off till i hav slack in the string.

Take it to any pro shop and have them reserve the Idler serving. It shouldn't cost that much.

All you have to do is loosen the top Allen bolt 2 full turns then the bottom 2 full turns and countinue that till the string is loose. Take pics of the string routing and then take the string to a shop and have it reserve.

i am 100% positive you do not need a press.i have takin my bow dowm(70lb bengal)with no problem and my budys 70 lb exile.martin built them so a guy does not need a press.you only need serving if it is coming off the string or if it is loose.

you do not need a press and you dont even need to back out your limb bolts to change it out.i will have my wife take some pics of how i do it in a few min.she is giveing my baby brook a bath so after that.and as for your draw mod f-6 or f-7 would be 30 inch depending on the amount of let off you want.how tall are you?

a trick to get a great idea of your DL is to measure your wing span from finger tip to finger tip then divide by 2.5 and that will give you a great idea og dl.

i just put my thumb on the riser grab the cable closest to the riser and squeez enough to get to the bolt on the draw mod and take the bolt out.i can do this by myself but if yo have a second person to help that is good to.

Sounds like you'd be better off taking it to a bowshop and having them take care of it. When you get a little more experience with bows then do some of the work yourself.
