I am considering getting a new quiver. I have used a cheap kwikee for as long as I can remember. It seems like everyone raves over the tight spot. They are just so expensive and I'm not sure why. So, please share your thoughts on this so I can make a decision if I should upgrade. Thanks.

I have a Kanati limb bolt on my recurve, and a Selway slip on on my longbow. Both 4 arrow.

Totally irrelevant to this thread :^)

Alpine. Quieter than tightspot and much cheaper

I prefer a 2 piece thou. Quiet and light

27-Jul-18
Tightspot has worked well for me. Dead silent, sits close to the riser, holds arrows firmly and is adjustable to help with balance.

From: drycreek
27-Jul-18
My TruGlo does everthing I want it to, so I've never sprung for the Titespot, but I'm a stand hunter and pull it off immediately upon getting settled so YMMV.

From: Fuzz

Strapped... I also had a kwikee kwiver for a long time and, like you, couldn't see dropping so much cash for a Tightspot. I recently upgraded and am very happy with the Tightspot so far. I no longer have to take my quiver off since it has no affect on arrow flight. I actually shoot better with it on my bow.

From: Castle Oak

I too could not stomach the $$$ for a tightspot. I replaced my 6 arrow kwikee with the 3 arrow kwikee and I carry only two arrows in it. I carry backup arrows in my old 6 arrow attached to the side of my day pack. Has worked well thus far but as you can tell I'm a cheap skate.

Get a tight spot, I've owned a bunch of different quivers, they are worth every penny

28-Jul-18
I asked the same question here last year. Based on responses, I went with the Tightspot and am completely satisfied.

From: dave cahilly

tightspot -keeps every arrow tight regardless of size,worth the money

28-Jul-18
I also upgraded to the tightspot a few years back and have zero regrets, super sleek, tight to the bow and holds arrows extremely tight. Worth the extra $ IMO

Two piece Hoyt on my Hoyt works perfect

Tight spot is a good quiver. Worth the money in my opinion.

There's a reason the Tightspot quivers are not the least expensive option on the market.

This is the front tire of my F150 on top of a 5 arrow hood we were testing a few winters ago. Just to give you an idea of what Tightspot is all about.

Cheers, Pete

Quivalizer no torqueing of the bow its awesome . this is my third year with and I think I have tried all brands,

From: Buffalo1

I not buying a quiver or a bow to run over in a truck. Seem senseless to me.

A "cheap" Kwikee Kwiver (3-4-6 arrow) has carried every arrow for me since they were introduced on the market back in the late '70's. I'm sticking with the one who brought me to the dance.

X2 Bou. Replaced my quiver last year. I was looking at Tightspot and the Hoyt 2 piece, settled on the Hoyt and love it. However if Stapped isn't shooting a Hoyt......

TightSpot.

From: JTV
28-Jul-18
G5 Head Lock ... light weight, can hold 6 arrow/ I carry 4 .. extra brackets for tree's available for FREE ... solid while on the bow, but easy on off ....

From: Strapped

Thanks for the responses guys, I do not shoot a Hoyt. Most of my shooting is done with out the quiver attached. I know i should practice with it on if that's how I will be hunting. I hunt with it attached every other year on my western hunts and every year unattached from my tree stand. I haven't really noticed a difference in my accuracy. I know my kwikee does vibrate some during shots. Some guys say a tight spot takes the place of their stabilizer, what do you guys think. I currently use a 8" stinger.

From: JTV
28-Jul-18
Keep the Stabilizer pn ... I take the quiver off when in a tree or blind ... I do shoot with it on just enough to get use to it if I bump a deer going in ... for Elk, and stalking, I would leave it on, but I prefer it off ..

From: Franklin

2 piece quivers like the Hoyt are the cats meow....I also had one on my High Country. I get "vane slap" on these quivers where the head and the arrow grip are not far apart.

Alpine SoftLok quiver. Quietest quiver out there. Save yourself about $100 from the TightSpot.

Ive had mine for 15+yrs and its still going strong

I tried a TightSpot but it wasnt for me

From: Bentstick81

Go get a cheap hip quiver, attach a strap to the broad head cup and hook the other end by the arrow gripper, sling the strap over your shoulder where the quiver rests at your side. Cheap, and easy to use and doesn't get caught up in brush. Similar to the G. Fred Asbell quiver.

From: HDE

Would never go back to a 5 arrow TS. Either 3 arrow TS or 4 arrow two piece bow now.

From: WYelkhunter

Apex gamechanger has almost the same adjustablility as tightspot, fits as close to the bow as you can get it, is not real heavy, is very durable and can be found online for a lot less than the tight spot.

29-Jul-18
TightSpot was introduced about 10 years ago and the knock was it cost too much. Cost is a concern absent value. The Quiver allows me to shoot the same with it on or off which is what I need.

From: cnelk
29-Jul-18
In my ‘backyard engineering’ experience, the biggest issue I saw with the TS was the single point of attachment to the riser and with the long carbon fiber tubes extending out to the hood caused vibration. The hood would actually rattle when you tapped on the quiver.

I think some people like to spend as much much as the can on gear when there are just as good if not better options for less money.

But it’s your money.

From: HDE

Fiber optics in sights rattle when you tap them as well...

And don't forget about the string vibration either.

From: cnelk

My Alpine does rattle when I tap it

Good luck in your decision

Which 2 piece hoyt model are you Hoyt guys using?

From: butcherboy
29-Jul-18
I had a tightspot for a little while because I bought into all the hype. I hated it. I moved it up, down, florwards, back, even bought the bracket and tried it. For me, it never seemed to balance right and caused some shooting problems. Shot great without it on the bow. Went with a two piece and have had no issues.

From: Dale06

What bou bound said abov. I have two two piece Hoyt’s, a six and a four arrow. They work great and cost a fraction of a tight spot.

From: caribou77

I've used a 2pc for 15 plus years. My old mathews, my diamond and now my elite. I agree a tight spot is a good 1 pc quiver. But after using a 2 pc, I'd never go back. Less sound and movement than even the best 1 pc qivers. And your bow is actually quieter with them on.

From: Boris
29-Jul-18
Chuck Adams still uses the hip quiver, I think. I myself have used the Delta quivers and have 4 of them. I do think that because the bows are much liter, they are thrown off. davep

I own 3 TS's. I bought 2 of them on eBay. Thought I'd never own a 1 pc. again until I tried the TS. I like the adjustability and being able to adjust the arrow grip tightness. I've never had a noise issue with any of them.

From: elkmtngear

I used to lose arrows every Season, snaking through brush, etc...until I bought the Tightspot. Works great for me, I recently upgraded to the 7 arrow model.

From: Flynarrow

Stick n String, I use the Hoyt Arrow Rack. You can find it on e-bay. It says its for the Satori recurve but if you read the product description it also states it will fit on all compounds with hexagon mounts. I shoot a Hoyt CST and it bolted right on.

29-Jul-18
Sweet, thanks Flynarrow. I am looking into that as well as the alpine as suggested by cnelk. Thanks guys

From: Grubby
29-Jul-18
I recently switched from alpine to Tightspot, I miss the alpine, very quiet and I love the dual grippers

From: Wapitidung

I have the two piece hoyt arrow rak on my hoyt. It's super light and very quiet.

My wife and I went to 7 arrow Tightspots a couple of years ago, after many years of 2 piece quivers, and have no complaints. Like the adjustment for arrow size which makes a perfect fit. Especially like the ease of detaching quiver for packing in hard case when we travel.

Good luck finding what works best for you.
