Quiver Question: 2 piece or 1 piece, if 1 piece Octane or Tightspot

1348 Views 21 Replies 19 Participants Last post by  qgudahl
So, if you do not have sight clearance issues, why go with a 2 piece vs a 1 piece, or vise versa?

And, if you are deciding between one piece quivers, Octane or Tightspot and why?

Finally, any suggestions on a quality target hip quiver for 3d tournies, leather preferred?

Thanks!

It is personal choices. I prefer a quiver that I can remove. I don't like shooting with a quiver on. I like the fuse satora quiver very well. It is fairly long and has an easy to use lever to remove the quiver. The tightspot quiver is very nice and is simular to the fuse. The tightspot has a quick release as well. The octane is very nice but I like the fuse and tightspot better for the way they hook and unhook from the bow. I mounted an extra bracket on my climbing stand so when I unhook the quiver from my bow, I can hook it right to my stand, I am left handed and I have mounted the bracket to the left side of my stand and the quiver sits upside down. This allows me to quickly grab another arrow if needed. So I like a long quiver with a guick release that holds around 6 arrows. I like the twin carbon rods because it allows the quiver to be adjusted to keep the arrows hanging down below the bottom cam. I also like the new elite archery quivers. They hook and unhook from the bow like the treelimb quivers.

As for hip quivers, batesman and fist make great leather quivers. I have an easton quiver and like it very well. It isn't leather but is still very nice.

It's all in what you want in a quiver and how much you want to spend. I love my TightSpot quiver, the adjustability, the way it holds arrows, the arrow that faces towards for a quick reload if you need a second shot and how easy the quiver comes off of the bow.

Not an Octane,they have to many moving parts and don't stay tight.

I love my tight spot. You can adjust it to hold different diameters of arrows, lays very flat to your bow helping to keep a low profile. Detaches quick and easy, and it has 0 rattles when i shoot with it on.

for a hip quiver for 3D and Indoor and Field i use a Neet 2100 in Black. its all leather and runs about 70 bucks. mine has lasted a lot of years and still works great.
heres a link to Lancaster Archery to look at them.

i put a TightSpot on my Carbon Matrix last year. i used to always take my quiver off of my bow due to not liking all the weight and bad balence. but i can say that TightSpot was awesome to have on the bow, very quiet, easy to set up, easy to use and very adjustable. you can make it sit at whatever angle you want so it balances the bow. now i never take my quiver off my bow.

I have used both the Octane and the Tight Spot. Very impressed with both. Both are quiet very adjustable and hold arrows great. Couldnt go wrong using either.
That being said I use an Alpine soft-loc I prefer its price to the other 2 and its very easy to detatch for storing the bow or shooting without it on the bow

I've had a 1 piece Octane and while I liked the magnets in the hood the thing weighed about 10lbs...I ended up just strapping it on my back, I didnt even like packing my bow with it on there. I just got a TightSpot and WOW that's a nice quiver...It's extremely low profile and has a crazy amount of adjustments on it. It's the most well thought out quiver I've ever seen and seems to be really quiet when loaded with arrows on the bow.

I absolutely love tight spot quivers. there is no other quiver out there that is as adjustable, easy to use, or has a better warranty. LIFETIME warranty, no questions asked.... its a no brainer.

I like a 1 piece quiver b/c I can remove it in the stand and its out of the way. I had an Octane quiver and it was ok. The foam wouldn't stay in when removing arrows and the magnetic hood made the quiver wayyyyy to heavy. I now have a Tightspot and love it. Its not a feather but is compared to the the Octane and super adjustable.

Tightspot is the complete oppisite in weight and balance from the octane. The octane is heavy with the magnets in and if you decide to take them out then you just spent about $50 to much on a quiver for features you won't use. There isn't anything bad about the tight spot. Its light, can be adjusted to increase balance and has a lot more features.
