I presently use one. I like the low profile design and how snug it fits on my bow. I also like how quickly I can take it on and off. They are pricey, but very well made. I'd buy one again.

I have one on my new Z7. I haven't hunted with it but have shot with it on. Very nice quiver and definitely mounts close to the bow. I l like mine a lot and found it for $70 brand new which made the decision much easier. From what experience I have with it so far I would buy it again, even at full price.

Just got mine this week. Most thought out quiver I have seen. Super light, tight to the bow, and detaches easy. Cant wait to put it to use this season.

I paid $20 or $29 for my bow quiver. Its on and off with a simple lever lock design.
Granted its not a huge name brand, and the individual tightening is not an option, but for the price vs $150......wow, seriously just wow. Function is utmost important. Optics that work I understand the cost, but a bow quiver that costs a buck 50? That I dont get.

ya, i hear you....i would love to have a tight spot, but too much money! i think prices will always be high for archery tackle until we say enough is enough and stop buying at such high prices. bows and such will just keep on going up if we don't!

I found mine slightly used on ArcheryTalk for $90. Another key selling point on the TightSpot is the quiver's adjustability. You can move it up and down and around to get it perfectly balanced on your bow. If you seriously looking, check AT, 24hourcampfire, or even EBay and you may find a smoking deal on a used one. Just my .02

I have one. I think that it has the ability to help balance most bows better than the traditional cheap quiver. This will make it easier to tune the bow and tighten your groups. Guess I just need that edge, but depending on what bow u have there are other reasonable options

For $29.00 on my $700 bow, with a spot hog seven deadly pin sight. I have this QUIVER (http://www.cabelas.com/product/Hunting/Archery/Quivers|/pc/104791680/c/104693580/sc/104518980/Alpine-Bear-Claw-Five-Arrow-Quiver/1208445.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fhunt ing-archery-quivers%2F_%2FN-1100032%2FNs-CATEGORY_SEQ_104518980%3FWTz_l%3DSBC%253BMMcat1047 91680%253Bcat104693580&WTz_l=SBC%3BMMcat104791680%3Bcat104693580%3Bcat104 518980).
This has 6 mounting locations, fast lever release, shock absorbing assistance. Extremely light weight.
Just doesnt have a rear facing rubber holder for your go to arrow.
Most people buy, not on research or on proven effectiveness of a product, but on sear pressure of marketing, media, and hype.

However you shop, however you are lead into a purchase, hands on trying is a major deciding factor. For me, if its good, works without hiccup, provides what I need, and is reliable, I like it. Better even when you can save your money on a nice price too.

There are lots of cheap quivers, and lots of spendy ones too. This is one cheap one that offers all the features of the spendy ones without the price tag to make it hurt.

Sorry for the highjack...lol sorta. :P

sandsarchey.com has them. Hit Steve up on this forum and he can usually get you a good deal.

Great in the tight bush when you have to bash through thick crap. Holds the arrows super well because of the adjustable clamps. My next quiver will be a tightspot.

I picked up one of these for my Carbon Element a few weeks back. I usually prefer two piece quivers but had a hard time finding one that works on the carbon hoyt. A friend had a TightSpot so I shot it on the bow for a week or so and really liked it. They are nice and worth the price tag IMO. You won't be disappointed if you get one.

I have one on my EVO and it is the best quiver I have ever owned, the foam insert leaves a little to be desired since I don't shoot mechanical heads.

Love mine.

Just wish the foam was a little more dense. But then it might weigh a minascule more. oh no.

All the paint wore off of the allen screw heads on mine and they are starting to rust. Think I'm gonna write to Tightspot considering I paid $150 for it.

i paid around $50 for mine in a clearence bin a few years ago. i was told it was a proto type. the foam has long since disapearred and i have to keep an eye on all the allen screws that keep coming loose, but i am still useing it today. i like it.
