I Have a 09 Firehawk,my draw is 29-,i put my old Quiver from my PSE on ,Quiky Quiver,now my new Bows ATA is 29 3/4 n my arrows extend way past the bottom of the bow,So basically i have to get a new quiver that has adjustments so i can center my arrows in the bow,any suggestions on a Quiver that will suit me,also how short can i go with my arrow length,without having any other issues. So it will be close to my ATA length

I have the exact same question. I was looking at the new Martin super quivers. It looks like they have several different mounting holes on them. If you go to the on-line catalog they are not the same as in the 2010 catalog.

Alpine archery has a quiver with a rubber mount that slides up or down between 2 rails. The rubber mount also acts as a vibration dampener. You might check it out on their websight. :)

The Alpine Soft-Loc might be something that will help, but be aware that this is a natural problem with such short bows. The higher you mount the quiver toward the top wheel (cam) the more top heavy the bow is going to be. If the balance gets too far out of whack you may end up with other shooting problems.

Just one of the other details to take into account when choosing a bow. Shorter is not always better.

I don't know what happens to my brain sometimes and I apologize for it. I just assume that most people want a detachable quiver. There are a couple options for you if you don't mind a a two piece quiver.

Being a guy that doesn't shoot with a quiver on most of the time I forgot to mention that I have a Wildman 5 two piece quiver. Of course I've never had it on a bow. If I did mount it I would only carry three arrows. That's the reason I chose this one in the first place. Five slots for 3 arrows lets me spread them out so no fletching rubs each other.

It's not what I'd call compact, but it's not large either and because it mounts directly to the riser it does not throw the center of balance off as much. It's an easy mount as it comes with the standoffs and bolts to mount if right to the barrel nuts in the riser. It's pretty slick and solid as a brick.

About the only issue you might have with it is getting arrow shafts to clear a sight that sticks out pretty far, such as the single pin adjustables. Think before you buy.

Good for you. I must say that I fibbed just a bit above. I did have the quiver mounted on my Moab just to check it out, but I never shot the bow with the quiver on nor did I ever hunt with either the quiver or the bow. The quiver is just another one of those things filling up my "miscellanious" drawer.

I think my hunting days are coming to a close (getting old) so I'll keep it another year or two just in case I change my mind.
