Would like to keep my bows out of the shop as much as possible and may be traveling to shoots the Lord willing, so I would like to be as independent as possible. Your recommendations would be appreciated. If a bowmaster would get it done fine, but if something more substantial is required I would like to know. So far with my older bows the backing out of the screws has worked pretty good but with the new bows coming I don't know if that is still sufficient.

The bowmaster has done well for me, nice thing is that its portable. That being said, backing out the limb bolts are still on option even on newer Martins. :)

Much the same here. Although I have a bench mounted press in the basement I don't think I've used it in at least 8 years. I do most of my tinkering at my club (outdoors) and the Bowmaster just works well enough. You can get away without the split limb adapters, but they do come in handy at times and who knows when Martin will be changing to split limbs on all their bows, so I'd get a pair of them. I like having a press that I can slip into my hip pocket.

Plus one on the bow master. Simple..portable....works well. I have changed strings, tied in peeps, added silencers, and anything else with it. No issues at all!
