TRUGLO TRU-TEC Quiver Review

The new Tru-Tec Quiver from TRUGLO has just about everything I look for in a quiver plus a few innovations that I wouldn’t have thought of putting on a quiver. And all for a price that won’t break the bank, $69.95; quite a bargain for a top end quiver these days.

The new Tru-Tec Quiver by TRUGLO

The one thing my quiver has to be is removable. I do not hunt with my quiver attached to my bow. I like to have my bow mounted to the side of my stand and having the quiver attached prevents this. It also makes my bow much more maneuverable on stand or in the ground blind. The attaching mechanism on the Tru-Tec Quiver is innovative and rock solid. And it’s one of the easiest systems to operate that I have ever used. Simply grab the quiver in your hand, depress the lever with your thumb and give it a slight twist and the quiver is in the palm of your hand. To reinstall the quiver place the V on the post and slide the bottom of the mount into the clamp and it’s there for keeps. This system is also silent on and silent off.

Simple, silent, one handed removal.

Rock solid when locked into position.

My next favorite feature is the twin grippers to hold my arrows in place. I much prefer this system than the more standard single gripper and foam in the hood. I feel continually sliding broadheads into and out of the foam will eventually dull them. And having foam in the hood makes it hard to store mechanicals without having them open or hang up when removing them. The grippers hold carbon as well as aluminum arrows securely.

Two rows of rubber grippers hold the arrow in place.

The rubber lining in the hood hold the broadheads in place.

Somebody finally got it right. Do you know how long I have been adding a piece of rope to my quiver so I can hang it from a limb or tree step? For as long as I have been bowhunting I believe. The Tru-Tech Quiver has it’s own built in rope so you can hang the quiver on a convenient limb. Nice touch TRUGLO!

I no longer have to add my own rope.

This quiver also has 2 features that really make it stand out from the crowd. The first is the Tru-Touch Soft-Feel finish. Much like the In-Velvet finish on Bowtech bows, this finish is soft to the touch and helps quiet the quiver down if you do bump it into something. And what I feel is the most innovative feature the light inside the hood option. It has a threaded hole in the base of the hood which accepts any TRUGLO or APEX Gear light. How many times have you tried to put your arrow back into the quiver after the evening hunt, only to not be able to find the right slot in the quiver? Problem solved. Turn on the light and you can see exactly where your arrow needs to go. No bumping around and no cut fingers trying to guide the broadhead into the quiver.

The light in the hood is the icing on the cake.

The only problem I might see with this quiver is, it’s so tight and compact that my vanes almost touch no matter how I arrange my arrows. I take my quiver off whenever I hunt so I won’t have a problem with this, but for those of you who hunt with your quiver attached, the vanes may rub against one another and create a buzzing noise at the shot.

A perfect fit on my ez7

TRUGLO put a lot of research into the design of this quiver. And I feel they did a really good job of putting the best features all into one package. I give it a 9.5, it has everything I want in a quiver and more.
