How many if you guys use them? Does their resting on the limb have any effect on performance?

My Kanati dual arc improves my bow. It balances better, shoots more quiet, shoots smoother, and is more steady in my hand. As for limb performance, it has no effect on arrow speed or the tuning of my bow that I have noticed. One of the things I like the best about the Dual Arc is that you can tune the quiver to your bow to adjust for balance, contact points, cant of arrow, and placement of hood.

Since both types rest on the fades, before the working part of the limbs (if attached correctly) there should be no difference in performance. As for balance and the "feel", some like it and some don't. I like the convenience myself, I tend to carry too much stuff on my back to add a quiver.

I really like my Greatnorthern strap on quiver, and as long as you keep it below the limb fade outs it won't have any affect. That's what my bowyer told me. Take care

You could be like me... and use both!

If you put the straps on a non-working part of the limb, you'll be fine. I took a bolt-on quiver and made a strap-on system for it that works extremely well and looks sharp, too. I prefer that setup, but at times use a bolt-on (on my recurve, which has inserts), or a Catquiver.

Fr a strap-on or bolt-on, it's tough to beat Bill Dunns (Zipper) quivers. He can even make one to match your bows wood

The best advice that I can offer is hunt like you practice. If you have the quiver on before season leave it on during season. All of my bows shoot around four inches to the left with a quiver on them, verses shooting without a quiver.

I have shot thru a chronograph with the strap on quiver then take it off with the same exact results. Like mentioned above keep the quiver close to the riser and off the working part of the limbs.

Take several newspapers and tape them together on a flat surface to make a big lay out pattern. String your bow up, lay it on the newspaper and trace out the outline on the back side. Now unstring it and lay it back up following those same lines. I'll bet you'll be surprised how far it bends "in the fade outs"!

IF YOUR QUIVER IS ATTACHED IN A WORKING AREA OF YOUR BOW then yes it will affect how it shoots. Sometimes it helps but most times it hurts.

MOST bow quivers end up mounted in the working part if you do the math.

No bow quiver should ever be mounted "resting on the limbs".They should never be mounted on the "working" limb.All tuning should be done with the quiver mounted,arrows installed,just as in a hunting situation.

I see so many bows with slide on ir strap on quivers installed above the fade outs...this will not only effect performance, but could very well harm or damage the bow.

Installed properly, I have seen no affects on performance.
