RCBS "Summit Press" -- Thoughts, comments...

Any thoughts on the new RCBS Summit Press?

It looks like a good press with some improved features, hopefully the price will come down.

I like the ability to mount on top of a bench with no parts below bench. Also like open area that you don't get with a O type press. The die moving down over the brass will take some getting used to for someone who is already a handloader.

If I were in the market for a press I'd get one.

I want one.

Waiting for the 'summer' production run, none have been shipped yet AFAIK.

I like tools so buy them even though I don't 'need' them.

This looks very cool.

Of course, when in stock a Forster Co-Ax is in the offing as well.

Perhaps I should sell some of the other presses (6 at the moment). No, better to find/make a good quick mount and storage system.

While I agree that anything RCBS is good quality stuff, I must say that I think I'll stick with my standard Rock Chucker Supreme press. Just simply my opinion.

looks like the handle rotates nearly 180 degrees, so you'll have to set the press out from the edge of the bench. I've got a RCII and love it. Have lusted after Forester Coax for years, but just never pulled the lever on one of those either.
