I am looking for devices that hold an arrow in place on the string and rest. I searched “arrow gripper” and got references to various quiver component. “Arrow holder” gave me nada. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Something like this?

Although it's a DIY thing, and requires drilling a hole into your bow...

But I remember someone else posted on this forum PowWow regarding this topic. Happy digging [Big Grin]

Kwiklok is just about the best option out there these days.

Oak 1/8" dowel and small strip of leather. Small hair band. Releases when drawn,solid in wind. Can be slid up to keep from too much stretch,slid down to tighten. When it gets too loose,get wet and the leather shrinks. Simple and works...for me at least [Wink]

Agree that Quick loc is a pretty good arrow holder. A Sta jac is even better if you can find one. No longer made, but sometimes turn up on the auction site. Mounting bracket has holes for drilling and/or bolting on, but can be affixed with double back tape. Really no need to ever drill to mount an arrow holder. Good luck in your search.

Fellers-there is someone out there that made a Sta-jac spin off and it works great! I bought (2) of them for my bows earlier this fall. It is exactly like a Sta-jac but adhere to the bow with velcro. It is the best arrow holder out there for a trad bow! IMHO

kennyb-
Not sure the one you got- but I had a Sta-jac "knock-off" where the rubber got very hard in the cold. Cost me a PY buck. . . imagine sitting in freezing rain all day with 15 minutes left in the day and a PY beast shows up. 15 yds. I got him. . . Begin my draw only to have the string at anchor while the nock end of the arrow is suspended between anchor and the riser. . . still attached to the "Sta-jac." Arghhh

Original Sta-jac or Kwik-lock can't be beat.

Glue or fletch tape a small portion of a feather on the out side edge of your arrow shelf.

Someone posted this earlier this year and it works great!

Acts as a small wall to prevent the wind from blowing your arrow off while on stand.

Do a search and you'll find it.

KSDan. I'm guessing that you're a 3 under shooter. Regardless of the holder type used, the first move should always be to pull the holder loose from the arrow. Then you can draw and shoot.

the most simple and cheapest way is to buy a piece of velcro to what length you need for the diameter of your bow, just wrap around the bow over the arrow and attach..you see the game undo an slip in your pocket....I have been doing this for a few years now...God Bless

Another Kwik Lock & Original Sta-Jac vote. I always do a purposeful arrow pull/holder release while gripping the nock & string when it’s go time....

Orion- Nope. Not 3 under. I am split. It was just "go-time" with mere seconds to react on a moving deer (very typical for me during the rut). The rubber became hard when frozen.

I know what you mean by releasing the holder- but I need fail-safe stuff (why I shoot trad). I honestly can only think of one thing at a time when the "go-time" happens. The Kwik Lock and Sta-Jac are perfect for me as it removes another thing I need to "remember" to check off the list.

KS. I know what you mean. As G.Fred said in one of his books, to paraphrase, things have a way of happening real fast out there. It can happen with split fingers, but more likely with three under when the arrow isn't pinched between the fingers.

I've been using Sta-jacs for many, many years. They were initially invented and produced by a fella here in Wisconsin, in about the '40s, I think. I can't remember his name. Have been picking them up wherever I find them so I pretty much have enough to last me.
