Tight Spot, pricey but worth it. Excellent product with even better customer service.

Tight spot seem to have a great following. I seriously looked at them but decided on a Fuse. I wanted smaller this year and opted for a four arrow. I was looking at the 6 arrow tight spot.

Are you spot and stalk or will you be taking the quiver off when you get to your stand/blind? How many arrows?

Tight spot 5 arrow quiver, they also make a 3 and a 7. My quiver never leaves my bow no matter what mode of hunting I am doing.

The tight spot is the go to but if you are looking for something a bit cheaper and your not shooting micro diameter arrows, I have had good luck with the Trophy Ridge Lite 1.

Default Quavalizer

Quavaliver hands down. I have 3 Tight Spots that I will be selling soon. If you have ever shot a bow with a longer stablizer you know what I'm talking about. I was a bit sceptical at first but once I tried it I can't see myself going back to a normal quiver.

If you have a 5 arrow black Tightspot Iíll scoop it from ya!!

Not to hijack, but Iím currently stripping and rebuilding a bowtech Carbon Icon and Iím looking to put a Tightspot on eventually. Given its low profile could it interfere with or being interfered by my sight? Iím planning on adding a hogg it

JimBow's is the best place to get one if you're in Calgary or Edmonton. I started with a fuse, and was constantly losing arrows when sneaking through thick cover while elk hunting. Wish I went with the Tightspot in the first place, haven't lost an arrow since I switched to one.

Tight Spot. Most over priced piece of archery equipment, but without a doubt the best quiver I've used to date.

If you donít want to spend $200.00, look at the bohning lynx, if they still make them. Mine is 10 years old, and it works great. Other than being a little faded, it doesnít show any signs of wearing out anytime soon!! Used to come in 4 and 6 arrow configurations. Not sure if theyíre still around. Itís fexible so it also helps to absorb vibration.

I should be getting my new bow this week and will be looking to outfit it with a new quiver. Do you have a link to this product? I have tried to google it unsuccessfully.

Hope you guys dont mind me reviving this thread.

Ive been doing a bunch of upgrades to my bow lately (added QAD HDX, Anchor Sight) Likely looking at changing stabilizers soon after a bit more research and testing models.

anyway I was also thinking of getting a Tight Spot.
Questions I have:
Whats so great about them?
How easy is it to install? Do I have to remove other parts from my bow to install it?(ie: Site, anchor sight, rest?)
Do other quivers really cause arrows to dislodge and become lost that often?

Currently I have the stock Octane quiver that comes with the Carbon Icon. When I sit in my stand I tend to take it off. This was due to me believing that I shot better with it off, which could be true, but I've been practicing more than I ever have before and adding my anchor sight has helped me a lot as well. Im planning on shooting more with a quiver attached because I believe its best to be prepared all the time rather than have to grab my quiver before moving on somewhere.

Let me know! I'm planning on getting a 5 arrow quiver.

I have a 5 arrow Tight Spot. Great mounting hardware. I had an anchor sight briefly and it was no problem with the TS. The ability to adjust the retention for different diameter arrows is awesome. I actually had a machining error on the mounting lever on my 1st TS. TS customer service had me go to Jimbows and grab a new one and they shipped Jimbows a replacement.... outstanding CS.

Shooting....

I normally (95%) shoot with the quiver on even for practice. I run a 6 inch back bar with 3 ounces of weight on an approx 30 degree angle to offset the weight of the quiver. My bow balances perfectly with this setup and I do not need to make any grip adjustments to have the bubble dead level. When I use my hunting bow to shoot 3D, I remove the quiver and the side bar, and again the bow balances perfectly without any adjustment.

Buy once, cry once!

I tried shooting with a quiver on my bow, but the main reason I have my bow setup the way I do is it's light weight. Adding a quiver full of arrows almost doubles the weight on the end of my arm.

Don't get me wrong; I'm 6'2" and have played sports my entire life. But I find I can draw & hold accurately for an extended amount of time with no quiver on my bow. If I put my 6 arrow quiver on and load up arrows, my pins shake after only a few seconds. This doesn't give me confidence in hunting situations where I may need to hold for 30 seconds or longer.

I have been running a 4 arrow hip quiver for about 10 years now. Sure, I have to be a little more careful when crossing a fence, but that's the only limitation. And if I were to ever sit in a tree stand, the quiver is on a separate belt that removes and straps onto the tree. And usually, hip quivers (when you can find them) are *usually* cheaper.

It's an option.... Just saying.

tight spot is a good one

i have two bows that accept the cheap plastic 5 arrow fixed two piece diamond archery quivers and they only weigh 5.5 oz total and fit the arrows super tight to the bow, don't need offset weight, well three bows, diamond infinite edge for the kids, bowtech specialist and pse decree hd

that's my preference over the tight spot...if i can't adapt the cheap 5.5 oz two piece quiver then i have a tightspot 5 arrow on hand for back up etc.

Go for the quivalizer. You wonít regret it, anything less is waste of money imo. I canít imagine shooting with a full quiver on the side of bow

you don't notice it all with what i use but agree, standard 11 oz quiver like a tightspot 5 plus weight of 5 arrows is noticeable...so you set everything up to that, levels etc.

the quivalizer full of arrows as a stabilizer sounds pretty solid for range work and ideal conditions afield perhaps..my worry there would be windy day stuff...would it not be a sail? and what's it like in tight cover spot and stock elk? or in a ground blind?

great on the range i bet, but seriously, for hunting? Looks like a royal pain that'd be stuck to the side of the bow as normal for the majority of hunting situations

the fixed two piece is the ultimate versatile bomb proof hunt set up, too bad so many manufacturers relying on 1 piece, i hope the trend comes back around on the fixed 2 piece stuff someday

I hear ya, makes sense in being able to be at full draw for longer without a quiver full of arrows due to the extra weight (mind you I donít know what that total added weight would be). I donít think Iíd want to wear a hip quiver while hunting tho, thatís just me. I donít like having a bunch of stuff strapped to my body anyway. Me being me Iím sure Iíd get tangled or frustrated with wearing a hip quiver in the bush, but I totally understand how it would work well for others.

Hip quiver is useless...if you hunt in the bush. I spot and stalk and like to stay mobile so the quiver is always on my bow. Rare occasions if I settle in for long stand sit or sit in a ground blind, Iíll remove the quiver. Tight Spot fits the bill for all uses IMHO. I like a bit heavier bow, it steadies faster for me.

I find the opposite. I hate it at the range but love it when Iím hunting so far. Makes for easy carry and I tend to shoot outdoors more bow, even practicing when itís windy. I always practice with a full quiver and will never go back
