    Default Quiver Question

    I have recently got back in to bow hunting again after 17 years. I am setting up a new bow. I bought a martin bone hunter, whisker biscuit rest, hitman 3 sight, was debating between the fast 4 quiver or the 2x4. I was told to go with a 2 piece quiver for carbon arrows because of less vibration. I am basicly starting from scratch, shooting release for the first time, and first for carbon arrows too. So I have to reteach my self all over again. But it is definately worth it. Thanks to all.

    the most vibration free quiver I've found is the Alpine sof'lok. I use the 5 arrow. Holds arrows secure and has a rubber mount.

    I have 3 of the Fast 4's and they are a great quiver.!!!
    I had (have) 2 of the 2x4's and both of them cracked where the pinch bolt clamps the top onto the mounting post after about a month of use.

    Martin - - - PLEASE build us a Fast 6 quiver.!

    I'll second that........definitely would try a Fast 6 if they came out

    I current use the Alpine Soft-lock 5 arrow size on my Bengal. It's vibration free as mentioned above and light.
    The mounting bracket is a bit large, not that it really matters much.
    And speaking of mounting bracket, don't smash the quiver into the hillside if you slip in mud as the rubber quiver mounts may rip loose from the screws holding it to the bracket.........not that I would know this from experience

    I have 3 of the fast 4 quivers on my bows. I like the fact they are one of the few quivers that will hold a small diameter arrow like I use. I always take the quiver off when shooting though, so basically any quiver is just a good way to haul arrows for me.

    Some like a bow mounted quiver some dont...depending on what side of the fence you are standing..will make the choice for you.. If you can Handle the exta weight, balance being a bit off go with the two piece bow mounted. If not then a quick disconect is the ticket for you..... Personaly I use a low bow mounted 2 piece...while My father has a removable type that he cant wait to tear off any chance he gets
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    Prefer a back quiver stilll, but I do like my Vortex-6 quiver from new dawn archery. Quiet, quick, simple. Yes, a tad bit heavier than your plastic and carbon quivers, but more rugged, and I'm about solid construction and reliability over featherweight and fragile. Can take it off with a flip of a switch when needed, and also there is a cover which encloses all of your arrows whether the quiver is attached to the bow or not; can even sling the quiver with cover over your back or wherever you leave it your arrows will be protected. My brother hates my quiver though, at least that's what he says.. But he's just jealous because he spent twice as much for a different manufacturers quiver (not going to mention any names), and his quiver mount broke (supposedly the strongest if not most important part of a quiver) during installation. You know it's sad but true!!!!!!

    Another to consider is the Kwikee Kwiver Combo. It's a detachable 4-arrow, much like the fast 4. I've had the same one for the past 3+ years and it's still almost like new in all regards, meaning it's very rugged. It's also very quiet - never had any noise come from it. I also like that it has two arrow grippers and handles "regular" size and small diameter shafts.

    I guess I've never understood a 4 or 5 or 6 arrow quiver if they go that far. I think they look nice to show off your arrows on the bow but that's about it. You usually only get 1 shot, maybe 2 if you miss bad enough, but can't see lugging the extra weight around. They also have a better chance of getting caught up on something. I just use a little 3 arrow quiver myself, but only to get the arrows to where I am going. Everyone has their own opinion about this, nobody is wrong with what they use. It works for them and that's what counts.

    I have a 3 and 6 Kwikee and always use the 3.Less bulk on the side of my bow.Take it off when I get in my stand.
