    Those B cams don't work? Hooray! You can sell them to me!

    Maybe in the next couple days I'll throw it on the bow and see how it feels. To shoot the bow I have to set it up again. I swapped out cams with my ShadowCat and the swap isn't going to work so I gotta change cams again.

    I'll get back to you on it so check back early next week. Bug me if I forget.

The hood is quite small and the sides are angled up, so you have to line 2 of your your 3-fixed blades with 2blades down and 1 up to get them all the way into the hood. The 3rd arrow goes in the with the blades opposit of the outside 2. Don't know if 4 blade broadheads would even fit in it un less they are small. Getting arrows out it's fine, and thats really the most important part. The other thing is ,it is a little heavy , i think for a 3 blade quiver. Not excessively so,but a little.
    BTW, I shoot 4 blade Slick Trick Mags, and they fit fine in the Fast4 and the Kwikee.

    Alec,

    What's your draw length and do you have your Wildman's on your Slayer?

    'Cause I just got my 2X4 yesterday and mount it on my Slayer and noticed that if you're 29" of DL the field point's or BH won't reach the rubber in the hood. #30" arrows will. I'll post pic of this and more on another thread , I'm just waiting for my pics to download from my cell.

    I draw 30", so the bow is set @ 29.5" and I have a loop.

    That could change as I am still growing. I was 29.5" last September. Now, i'm 30", and my hunting arrows are too short.

    heres what to do.

    Flip the lower arrow holder backwards (the rubber part), and mount it upside down on the bottom of the bow. Not, clip your arrow into that behind the fletches. Should work for an arrow 27.25"-27.75" depending on the length of vane, and where the fletching starts.

    I changed the cams around on the Moab. Took all of 20 minutes. Then mounted the quiver just to see how it fits. Quite a bit of adjustment to it. I was surprised. My arrows are 27" so I had to flip the arrow holder as you guys have. I was going to mention it, but that darn Alec beat me to it.

    Alec, the B Cams fit OK. I had it all set up just the way IU wanted with the X system and all. Problem is I couldn't get one of the screws loose that hold the CCS to the riser and my cables would have whacked it pretty hard. I tried everything short of using heat on the riser, which isn't going to happen.

    I'm not ready to part with the cams as of yet, but if I do decide to sell them or something you'll get first divies.

    I got the Fast 4 because I wanted a martin Quiver for my martin bow. Turns out, it is one of the nicest I've had. the rubber won't get punctured by the BH. It is quiet and firm, with a solid mount.


    Alec

    Ditto!! It is solid and I like the VEM on it too. No sound at all.


    I also want to add that if your a left hand shooter, the quiver (2X4) will set up towards the front of the bow, different from a right handed on which I assume it will be aligned on the the side of the riser. I also had to move my sight back so the arrow in front of it won't be against it.I shot about a dozen times and felt like in fact affects my center of gravity a bit. I'll shoot it for a while and see if I get used to it. If not I'll mount it on my son's new bow.


    Here's a picture of my L/H SLAYER with it so you can see what I mean:

    Nope, that can be solved too.

    There is a screw in the back of the hood. Undo it. Now, the hood pulls free. Turn it around, and when you mount it on your bow, it will point the right way. You'll have to do the same on the bottom of the quiver too.

    What?? You got to be kidding me!! Thanks, I'll try that!

    You know, it would've been really nice if Wildman Co printed them instructions for the lefty shooters that buy this product. I bet some had returned this quiver 'cause they couldn't figure it out and some would've ended using the way I have it now,..... I was !
