New to widow w/a quiver quesion - Elkemrack

Hello, My name is Randy and this is my first wall post here other then buying in classifieds. I bought a PCHX and I want to get a Selway quiver for it. I'm looking at either the slide on or strap style, asking for opinions on which setup might be the best between the two. Thank You!

I have two Selway slide-on quivers that I use on several bows and like them. That said, I have had a BW quiver for years that I use on all of my Widows. It is rugged, quiet, and rock-solid. Of course, that quiver requires BW bushings, which you may not have on your bow. In that event, the Selway will serve you well for many years to come.

personaly I can't stand a bow mounted quiver; (Just don't like the feel of it on my bow) Use an Asbell style quiver for hunting the strap on would be easy to take on and off where the slide on is best kinda left there (hard to remove) though think Selway has a deal with end caps that screw off for easy removal The Great Northern strap on is easy on and off and quite light and stays put well

I like a bow quiver myself. All my widows carry them. Hunting in thick cover or a treestand, I find it easy to manuever with the arrows attached to the bow, where I dont have to fumble behind my back, at my side for arrows.

I'm not a big fan of a bow mount quiver in general as that weight on one side can torque your shot. However some folks find a benefit from the additional weight helping them to settle down the bow (hold steadier) during the shot. Either way, I like the Kanati strap on, 3 arrow quiver. John is a terrific guy and he'll work with you to build whatever you want. I believe Selwy also offers a strap version. I know my Kanati I have NEVER had any issue with movement, coming lose etc (the most common complaint I'd say of a strap on quiver). If I'm in the trees or in a ground blind I generally use the strap on for the hike in/out as it's super convenient. The Kanati rubber strap is very quiet/easy to use so I generally remove the quiver when I sit and hang it next to me (hanger strap is incorporated in he quiver ) Another positive is the strap on model ( no matter the brand u choose) doesn't require bushings, doesn't mar your finish (I can only speak to my Kanati on that point) and can easily be moved from bow to bow... Good luck and have fun researching learning and experimenting >>>----->

Check out the Thunderhorn Quivers before you buy, I have the smallfry model on all my bows and love'em they will build just about any combination of color you want, I had snake skin on mine to match my KB skins. quiver is real sharp and they have many options!!

The strap on in my opinion will be your best option. --------- The connection mechanisms of either of those quivers need to be modified in order to get them where they are smack down against the riser. In my experience, if you don't do that it will effect performance of the bow, even if well inside the fades.--------- The Thunderhorn strap on quiver is my favorite, and it is easily modified to connect against the riser, but still usable on any other bow. Actually the modification makes it even more user friendly from one bow to the next regardless of the type of bow.--------- Rick

I personally have the 7 Arrow, black Widow Style bow quiver, it's solid and adjust to any Arrow just tighten or loosen the nuts and screws. But I like the thunder horn 4 arrow Small Fry side winder which will attach to your already tapped widow riser. Hope that helps Thank you Bob

I too use a asbell style quiver, straps on to my back pack or fanny pack which ever iam using. this works out well for me as i don't shot with the quiver on any way.

I ran a Selway, but later chose to make custom brackets to go under my SA2 limb bolts, used a Delta/Bear quiver. Selway looked good but was a little noisy for my tastes. I am running another one (Delta/Bear)on my HS58. I flipped the stock brackets around-opened from 1/4 to 5/16 and bolted them to my D&T'd factory limb bolts.

im not a big bowquiver user as i just dont like the weight on one side of my bow,and use a cat quiver. but the best option i have found while trying sevaral, is a great northern adjustable strap on,its real light but really solid as well, get it down the limbs against the riser as much as possible. be sure to tune your bow with it on and loaded with arrows as there will be a diffrence. Usually a bow with no quiver seems to take a little stiffer arrow for me anyway..

I ran a GN strap on for a few years- agree, nice stuff. The only thing my bows needed when a quiver was put on was the nock point raised just a wee bit. Note: all my quivers have placed the arrow at or slightly behind the centerline of the bow. Recently i experimented with a more fwd mount (Delta quiver) to better balance the bow. It balanced GREAT, but put the mass up far enough at the shot the bow torqued and it really threw the tune off. I simply flipped my brackets back and got sweet tears in paper tune again. Might make brackets to get it more close to center, but it looks like it aint going PAST center, to any fwd position LOL!
