G5 Outdoors Head-Loc RTap Quivers
I purchased the G5 Head Lock quiver to go on my new G5 Bow. I really like the ability to move this quiver vertically so that the arrows stay contained within the outline of the bow. I shoot 28.5" arrows and had no problem keeping them within the limbs of my bow to make treestand shots much easier. It is also pretty quiet. Seems to be made of quality materials. I have only used it in hunting situations a few times, but very satisfied. It is also nice that you get a tree stand adapter to hang the quiver on if you choose to. Worth the money.

Haven't taken the quiver out hunting yet, but have used it for 3D practice. I really like the adjustability...especially since my arrows are uncut and hung well below the lower limb with my other (non-adjustable) quiver. The only issue I have is with the length/depth of the hood. I shoot 200 gr. Vantage Point Broadheads (3 in. long), and the bottom of the broadheads are exposed, whereas my other quiver is deep enough to complete cover them. It is a slight safety issue, and I know the broadheads I use are longer than what many people shoot, but it would be nice if they were fully covered. I'll have to mod it somehow, but still think it's an excellent quiver overall and will continue to use it. I also like the aluminum rails vs plastic. Feels like it will hold up better.

Nice quiver, great price
I was looking at much more expensive quivers for a Mathews Switchback XT. The gentleman that helped me steered me towards this one which was half the price. He was right; very secure, light weight, well built, quiet. Its has a rubber hood interior opposed to the foam which eventually breaks apart. My 100gr G5 Montec's fit well into the hood which is kind of stubby compared to other quivers, probably to save weight. I'm very glad I talked to the salesman...

This quiver has one of, if not the best mounting system I have used. It is quiet and easy to remove the quiver from the bow and put it back on. It is great for those who like to remove the quiver while in a stand or need to remove it to put the bow in a case. It holds the arrows well and holds firmly on the bow. It's nice that it comes with a extra mount for the tree but I wish extra bow mounts were available to put one in my bow case.
