Option Archery Carbon Quivalizer moulded hood Description
Option Archery's aptly named Quivalizer features an adjustable tension arrow gripper and reduces bow weight, improves bow balance and increases aiming stability at full draw by combining the quiver and the stabiliser into a single unit.
The plan with the Quivalizer was to lighten the overall weight of the bow and make your hunting bow balance and aim like a target bow. Normally this winds up loading up your bow with offset stabilisers, rear stabilisers or longer stabilisers. This adds so much weight to your hunting bow that you have to ask yourself if it is worth all the trade off. The Quivalizer can shave up to 10 to 12 ounces off the weight of your bow, yet puts a long stabiliser out there.
The function that really sets the Quivalizer apart from all other quivers on the market is the ability to shoot with it in the front stabiliser position but it can also be quickly locked in the fully functional side standard bow quiver position.
In the side position, it balances the bow similar to other bow mounted quivers which mount tight to the bow.
In the front position it balances the bow perfectly (left to right) and gives stability similar to shooting with an 18 to 20 inch front stabiliser.
Another thing to note is that when it is mounted in the front position, it protrudes from the front of the riser almost exactly the same distance as a nocked arrow.
Formerly known as the Trophy Taker Quivalizer, it is now named the Option Archery Quivalizer.
No tools quick release connections allow the Quivalizer to be used like a one piece quiver.
It can be clipped to the side of the bow for storage and transport and moved into shooting position in a matter of seconds.
One look at a line up of professional target shooters and it is no secret that a well balanced bow with a longer stabiliser is more accurate than one without.
The Quivalizer addresses both issues by offering a longer than average stabiliser that helps store quiver and arrow weight on the correct side of the bow.
At the same time, overall bow weight is noticeably reduced thanks to its lightweight design.
The Quivalizer is easily converted from right to left hand, allows the arrows to be stored on either side of the stabiliser and offers left/right adjustment to fine tune your bow's balance at full draw.
With the Quivalizer, there are three tools in one - a stabiliser, an at the ready quiver for grabbing an arrow for a quick follow-up shot and a bow stand for setting your bow down. At first, you might not take this product seriously, but once you see it work and use it, you'll be totally convinced.

This is what people have said about the Option Archery Carbon Quivalizer 5 arrow bow quiver.
5 out of 5 stars. "Throw away your old quiver. If you haven't already tried the Quivalizer, then you can't really grasp how well it works. Installing it on the bow takes minutes, and employing it in the field takes seconds. It feels like you're shooting with a target stabilizer. Your pins settle rapidly, and stay settled. I couldn't get over how light it is. The fit and finish is flawless. It doesn't add any bulk to your bow over a standard quiver, and, for whatever this is worth, it makes a very cool, stable kickstand to lean your bow up against a tree. Great product." From Dan Vastyan from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "Unbelievable. What at first may seem kinda gimmicky will eventually change your mind. I absolutely love the Quivalizer. From being able to stalk hunt with a longer "stabilizer" to being able to quickly move to a stand and mount it on the side of the bow traditionally has made me a lot more proficient. It may seem a little odd at first but as soon as you start shooting with it on your bow you will understand that the competitors are just jealous of the brilliance and simplicity of the Quivalizer." From Stephen Goin from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "Game Changer! The Quivalizer greatly improves bow balance and aims like a target stabilizer. Steadier aim really helps you execute better and more accurate shots. I didn't realize how much lighter my bow was with the Quivalizer until I grabbed my backup bow with a typical QD quiver, stabilizer and side rod for balance - gotta be almost 2 full pounds and the bow now aims and even carries better. This is a game-changer! I pull the arrow closest to the bow first to avoid any contact with my bow arm. I highly recommend this product! Shoot straight!" From Darin Cooper from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "Not a gimmick. Hands down one of the most Innovative designs I have ever seen. I can assure you this is no gimmick. My bow holds more steady at full draw. Long range groups have tightened up. My bow is lighter. This design is very easy to use and I feel it packed very well through the forest. I had no issues with it catching or tangling in brush when hunting Roosevelt elk in the thick riparian zones of Western Oregon. I am a firm believer in this product and would definitely recommend you try it." From Ryan Holzhouser from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "Not a gimmick!! Never liked a bow mounted quiver and after thirty years I've pretty much tried them all. I bought my quivalizer this spring and absolutely love it! Best of both worlds! Don't worry about how it looks (which I think is pretty awesome by the way!) Balances a bow really nice and reduced my total weight by a pound! Best money I've spent in a long time! Can't say enough good things about it!!" From Bones Johnson from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "The solution! Two pieces of gear tied into one! I was very skeptical of this at first but I got it to try it out. Damn glad I did! When I draw my bow I don't have to level it out, it balances on it's own, and I am shooting the same hole at 15 yards! My groups past 60 yards are smaller than they have ever been. If you do everything right this stabilizer helps you shoot the lights out!" From Hocking Ranger from USA
5 out of 5 stars. "Quivalizer. Great product and quality." From Hunter5050243 from USA
