    Default bowmaster bow press and silencer

    I have always used my bowmaster portable bow press to relax my old martin to install peeps, drop away cords, even used it to change limbs. Will this work on a new silencer or Onza, if I buy one, to install a peep sight ect?

    It will work, but you'll have to get the limb brackets as well... there are 3 kinds available (one does not work on parallel limb bows), one that is evidently not made any more (its the one I have) and a new one for this year that is for parallel limbs.

    By the looks of the silencer, even though it is a parrallel limb bow, at rest the limbs are not perfectly parrallel so given that you only need to relax the string a tad bit to install a peep ect, wouldn't the standard bowpress model do the job? I mean it is not like you need to compress the limbs a whole inch or anything like that.

    You should be able to buy the adapters, or possibly make something that will work for you. I'd hate to say, 'Sure, go ahead' and then have something happen, once past parrallel, there's nothing to stop the Bowmaster cable ends from slipping into your cam (s) and possibly causing damage. Just being cautious.
