Nite Hawk Archery's Portable Bow Press ($99.99) will press every current bow design, and it will even adjust so you can get around the String Suppressor brackets on Mathews bows. Weighing 25 oz., it has two frames that clamp to your bow's limbs with pressure points that you adjust to wherever you want them. Connecting the frames is an adjustable strap. With everything in place, simply rotate the large rubberized turnbuckle to press the bow.

Prototech Industries' Bowmaster Portable Bow Press ($49.95) is as small a portable press as you are going to find; an attractive feature, especially for wilderness bowhunts. It has a steel cable that attaches in the fork of your limbs or, in the case of split-limb bows, to a Quad Limb Bracket that slips over the limb tips. The cable is drawn up by a jackscrew to press the limbs.
