    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.
