Default Bow Press

My current bow press will not press my new bow, an Elite Synergy. It has pressed every bow owned and then some until now. Problem is the parallel limb design. Time to upgrade/change. I am looking at an "in-line" type of design, particularly the EZ Press by Last Chance Archery. They make 4 models and according to the adds, the differences are the additional bells and whistles for the upper end models. I am considering the EZ Green. As near as I can tell, the big difference is the crank handle in lieu of the wheel for moving the press. Anybody familiar with these models? This is for home use and all I intend on using it for is pressing. I have a draw board, so I don't need this add on, I also don't need the motorized version or the ability to press a cross bow. Any insight would be appreciated. Or, do you have other brands you would recommend?

Thanks for any input.

I like the ez green type of inline presses. I just had to teh new hoyt press adapters which hurt the wallet. If you plan on pressing a new hoyt anytime look at a model that will press all of them a little better. At $200 for the hoyt fingers alone, when added you the press price there are a few other options for presses that do the same thing for cheaper.
I also like the hand crank as well. The motor version are kind of junkie and don't hold up. the weighted wheel is nice though.

Thanks Alpine... I just placed the order this evening. I got some very positive responses from my post on Archery Talk. Now I think I will put my old press up for sale. It will press everything except the new parallel limb bows. Hopefully someone will be interested. Been a good one.

Yep, EZ Green is what I got. As often as I press, it works "right well".

I picked up the EZ Green and set it up Saturday. Works great on my new Synergy. Now I have my old press that I don't need anymore. If anyone is interested, PM me. I will make a great deal on it. It will press any bow except the new parallel limb bows.
