Your Dream Bow Shop

posted on January 11, 2016

X-Press Pro Bow Press
From replacing strings to changing limbs and cams, there are good reasons professional bow shops have a press. As a serious do-it-yourselfer, you should, too. Fully adjustable and engineered with safety and speed in mind, this press locks your bow in place and utilizes Quick Spin wheels to press your bow in less than a minute. Press any bow from traditional recurves to modern compounds and even crossbows. MSRP: $1,199.

Easton 12-Piece Pro Shop Tool Kit
Rather than piecemeal together the tools you’ll need over time, start off with this set of all the essentials for most minor bow and arrow repairs. Zippered case includes two folding Allen-wrench sets (extra-large and small), bow square, bowstring wax, serving thread, nock-loop rope, nock-loop pliers, nock installation and removal tool, arrow-prep tool, broadhead wrench and wedge arrow puller. MSRP: $99.

Bitzenburger Fletching Jig
Fine-tune your arrows’ flight by fletching your own shafts. Constructed of die-cast alloy with a strong magnet for a precise clamp hold, you can place fletching of any size and material in a three- or four-piece pattern. Dials make it easy to change from a straight, offset, or true right or left helical setting. Self-centering shaft cradle will accept and center any size shaft. MSRP: $129.

Cabela’s Arrow Cut-Off Saw
A job that used to require a trip to the pro turns into a pleasant few minutes in the garage when you have your own arrow cutter. Heavy-duty 8,000 RPM motor makes quick work of carbon and aluminum shafts. Safety shield prevents injury, and measuring scale ensures accurate cuts at lengths up to 34 inches. Use the included arrow spinners to check the straightness of arrow shafts, broadhead balance and nock alignments. Includes two saw blades. MSRP: $179.

NAP American Pride QuickFletch
Fletch your arrows in a fraction of the time it takes with a traditional jig—no tools required. With QuickFletch, it’s as easy as boiling water. Featuring a stars and stripes design, these fletchings utilize NAP Twister Vanes, which combine a super tough vane material for stiffness and micro grooves for faster arrow rotation. QuickFletch will shrink to fit any size shaft. 6-pk. MSRP: $19.

Apple Archery Economy Vise
Perhaps the most necessary tool for any at-home bow shop, and one that’s affordable, the bow vise is the best way to hold your bow in place while conducting minor repairs and mounting hardware. Simple to mount and even easier to use, plastic-coated jaws won’t scratch or damage your bow. Constructed of steel and powder-coated for durability. Allows 360 degrees of rotation left-to-right and front-to-back. MSRP: $79.
