I seem to get a different quiver every year. I started with an Alpine 5-Arrow quiver, but it was loud. I moved to the G5 Mag-Loc Quiver, while I like the magnet design sometimes it was a little too strong and the hood was too large. Now I’ve got the PSE X 5-Arrow Quiver, and can say that this will be on my bow for years to come.
First off, it’s a two piece design which I absolutely love because of the versatility. Depending on what I’m packing in my quiver is either attached to my bow or the side of my pack. To clip to the bow it easily rotates into place and is held in place rock solid. It has a low profile that makes it attach nicely to the bow and not put too much weight out away from the riser. Once in stand I either take it off my bow and attach it to my pack or hang it from a hook. The quiver has a metal loop in the design at the top that makes it very easy to hang up on the side of the tree, stand or pack.
I’ve used fixed blade and mechanical broad heads this season and both fit nicely in to the foam inside the hood. As with any quiver or anytime I knock an arrow with a mechanical broad head I check to make sure they didn’t move or partially open in transport. The design of the bottom of the quiver does a good job of holding the arrows tightly without making loud popping sounds when placing arrows in the quiver or removing them.
Overall, I’m more than satisfied with both the look and performance of this quiver. It easily accommodates multiple arrows sizes as well as both mechanical and fixed broad heads. At retail price of $99 it’s not the cheapest on the market but it’s a solid quiver that will last a long time and look great on your bow.
