The Bowmaster's long range of pull eliminates the need for precise bow length adjustment. This allows for the use of a multiple stop cable with 1 1/4" adjustments in place of the bulky rods used by other portable bow presses for bow length adjustment. The multiple stop cable is one of the features that helps to make the Bowmaster one of the most compact portable bow presses on the market (just 3" x 5" when the cable is rolled up). All metal construction. The "T" handle allows for easy use in the field with no additional tools required.
