What makes a martin different from other companies as far as not needing a press? I have gotten some grief from others for my twisting procedures. telling me i am going to do more harm than good.

They give you bolts long enough to relieve all the tension on the limbs. They also have steel barrel nuts for the bolts to screw in and out of where other bows are directly in the aluminum riser. Even so, once you get it twisted up right its not like you are changing it constantly.

Won't do harm. A good press is faster but you can still do damage.

Just throwing something out here, but with martin being one of the only, if not the only company who has limbs that have 15# adjustments instead of 10# would they use longer or shorter limb bolts to get to higher poundage more quickly, or is this a slow process? Seems like it didn't take to many twists to get the poundage up there.

The all do the same, same bolt treads. Just that others that have a 10lbs range don't go lower and need a bow press.
