Quivers - Buckshotap

Has anyone tried the # 463 Great Northern side mount quiver or #468 Kanati Dual Arc? Mainly interested in vibration issues or balance (adjustability) issues. Always seem to have some bone to pick with quivers I've tried in the past. They vibrate too much or do not mount to the bow in a real firm way. Strap on quivers are convenient but not very solid.

Buckshotap I don't like a bow mounted quiver very much, don't like the lack of balance (or change there of) I manly use a back quiver for roving and the Asbell style for hunting (also like the one Rod Jenkins sells (arrow master) Black widow carrys them) Of all of the bow mounted qwuivers I have tried I like the strap on Great Northern the best very solid mount and light and functional

I haven't found one I like very much either. Sometimes use a Kwikee when I am going to take it off at the stand. I do mostly stand hunting. Have an Asbell also & like it ok for deer hunting & works well while carrying a pack. Was somewhat of a problem hanging up on brush while running elk out in CO so I switched to the Kwikee out there. Have one strap on but it won't stay put while shooting. Wants to move up the bow. The 2 I mentioned would be ok as far as movement & are light weight but I am concerned about vibration. Looks like I could take them off easily after getting in a stand. If you watch some of Fred Bear's videos, one of his quivers vibrates like a tuning fork at the shot. The 463 & 468 are too expensive to buy & then have a lot of vibration/noise. I would never have thought quivers would go $100 plus. But, milk ain't cheap either!

I LOVE my GN side mount. I shoot better with a mounted quiver for one reason or another. No vibrations and it quiets the bow a little more. I have a 2 Oclock cant so balance isn't an issue for me either.

I also shoot a 2 o' clock cant & only carry 3 arrows in the quiver to cut a little weight. 2 broad heads & a squirrel arrow. Figure if I miss twice, it's time to head for the truck & practice some more. That's good news on the vibration & puts me closer to turning loose the dollars. Thanks.

I've got the Dual Arc, and most other quivers invented since the dawn of time. There simply isn't a "perfect" one out there. There are perfect ones for today.... and perfect ones for the rain tomorrow, etc,etc. I really like Ken's Dual Ace setup, and use it sometimes. The Dual Arc is really nice, low profile,no balance issues, but it's still a bow quiver (with all the good , and all the bad). Just get one of each! :)

Don't say that! Makes me want to drive to Nixa (4 hrs.) & look at them. But, that adds a lot to the cost. Afraid I would also order a PSRX. That would really make it an expensive drive! Maybe I will get a really big tax refund. Nah, never do!
