Octane Bantamweight Quiver Review

            The Octane Bantamweight Quiver is the latest in Bowtech’s quiver lineup. It is one of the lightest and the most adjustable quivers on the market. The foam head will accept any broadhead design made.  

 

            The adjustability of the Bantamweight Quiver makes it possible to use on any bow with any arrow length. The arms pivot and move to any angle and the length between the head and the grippers can be adjusted to suit your arrow length. The angle of the head and grippers can be adjusted to align the arrows with your bow to protect the nocks and keep mud and debris from sticking in them. Check out the video in the link to see the adjustability in action.

            Because of it’s skeletal design and the use of lightweight materials this quiver is one of the lightest on the market, saving valuable weight for those long hikes to your stand or lightening the load for those mountainous climbs.

 

            The foam in the head is CNC cut to accept any broadhead design from mechanicals to 3 or 4 blade fixed heads. The foam has been treated with a rust inhibiter to keep your blades rust free and razor sharp.

The Bantamweight can accept any style of broadhead.

 

            The quiver mounts to the top hole in your bows riser, and can be removed by loosening one knob. This mounting style allows for clearance over the knobs of many adjustable length bar sights. Quivers which mount to the holes in the sights often times have issues with hitting the locking knob on adjustable length sights.

The quiver attaches with one screw and can be removed by loosening the red knob

 

Once removed this is all that is left attached to your bow.

 

 

 

Top of the riser attachment allows for clearence of  adjustable length sight knobs.

            The Bantamweight also sits close to the bow, not taking up a lot of space in your case. This also helps when walking through thick woods, keeping everything close to your body and not getting caught on limbs and branches.

Adjusts to completely protect your arrows.

 

            My only complaint about this quiver is; I wish it had 2 arrows grippers instead of one and the foam in the head. I use the Rage Broadhead and the foam can cause the blades to open in the quiver. If there were 2 grippers you could use the head without the foam and not have that problem. I have found that over time, taking the heads in and out of the foam can take some of the razor edge off of the blades also.

 

            Overall I really like the quiver due to the light weight, super adjustability and the simplicity of attaching and removing it from my bow. If it had the 2 grippers, I would consider it the perfect quiver.

And best of all it works.
