As is often typical I like to test and bring forward new products that I believe are the best available after market products of their type. Today is no exception and I'm a bit excited for everyone to see this one, so let's get rolling.
As many of you may know, in the world of archery and compound bows there is a company out their that makes a quiver called the Vortexx 6 STX. If you've ever seen or used one of these quivers you know that they are considered the Rolls Royce of arrow quivers because of how well they are made and how smoothly they function.
They are virtually indestructible, Dead Silent and vibration dampening. They use a quick release lever that allows them to be put on or removed instantly and silently. Arrows are locked into the shaft holder and can not fall out or come loose based on the proprietary patented design. When you wish to remove an arrow for loading, you simple rotate the arrow shaft holder and the shaft will almost drop free without having to pull on it.
Until now, we have no crossbow mounted quivers to choose from since it hasn't been an option from PSE or anybody else when it comes to the TAC Crossbows. That's NO LONGER TRUE
Effective immediately I just finished testing and have mounted one of the Vortxx Quivers on my TAC15i and was hunting with it from my treestand yesterday. I made sure that I was able to put it through hell on the first day out by banging it against the tree while hauling my crossbow up to the stand with my rope. I also made sure I tangled my rope in between the arrows before hauling to insure that even with the weight of the crossbow against the arrow shafts nothing would come loose.
Once in the tree, it was a piece of cake to instantly remove the quiver, hang it and proceed to load my crossbow. When it came time to get down, I didn't baby anything. I simply reversed the process and let it all back down without so much as a sound.
The real beauty was the fact that when it came time to either go into the woods or come back out, I was able to put the crossbow on my back and not have to worry about a side quiver on my leg catching and tangling in the brush as I moved through. My hands were free and everything was as portable as it used to be with my compound bows.
Their are two versions of these quivers available and there are also two different brackets available as far as I understand. I'm currently using the single quiver bracket which can hold either the 4 arrow or six arrow Vortxx Quiver. The 4 arrow quiver does not have the rotating release so it operates very much like a standard bow quiver. The model 6 STX has the rotating feature and I'm in love with it.
The second bracket available is more of a Boomerang shaped bracket that is designed to support either two quivers or allows instant switching to either side of the crossbow. These quiver and bracket assemblies are designed to mount on the underside of your front Weaver style rail using four #10 x 24 x 1/2" Flat head screws. It takes about 30 seconds to attach your mounting bracket with just a screwdriver and your in business and ready to go. The brackets are powder coated to match the TAC crossbows and are taped to match up to the manufactures mounting holes.
