I am going to need some product testers very soon.

Requirements are;

1) You need to use AMO pattern attachments - sights, quivers, whatever fits the AMO 1-5/16" spacing

2) That you are actively using said attachment(s)

3) You are willing to communicate what's good, bad, or indifferent about the use of the product

4) U.S. mailing address (can't afford overseas for testing)

Interested parties can shoot me a PM or email (email preferred) spinrite@comcast.net

To be clear - I need the user's bows to be WITHOUT inserts. The test is for something to allow a wood riser to use those type system without damaging the riser.

I wood if I could shoot a Longbow. JF

Thanks

Little inundated there Dan? :^)

Not completely, but I didn't want to get buried and have to say no to a bunch of guys.

It did resemble offering free food at business meeting though. ;-)

Another success story. Only in America.

From: Dan In MI
Date: 17-Apr-18




Some you that contacted me didn't give an address.....

Can't mail to nowhere.

I don't want to say you snooze, you lose.....

From: Dan In MI
Date: 17-Apr-18




Still need a couple addresses.

Any of those that have contacted that have a longbow instead of a recurve, let me know. I have a few smaller ones for longbows.

From: bodymanbowyer

I'd be in if I could shoot. Come on you Freeman Longbow Shooters. Step up and check out what Dan is working on. JF

So many questions........

From: Dan In MI
Date: 18-Apr-18




The final will be like the left but painted. There will also be a thinner one that fits longbows better as long as it passes testing.

The one on the bow has made it through two deer seasons with a sight and no loss of being sighted in. (didn't move) It's also been removed with no damage to the bow.

Dovetail bracket to accept a quiver or sight that has a female receiver of same design. ) Guessing of course.

From: Dan In MI
Date: 18-Apr-18




You're making it too hard. It's just a tape on bracket with the AMO threaded holes. Blind holes so gorillas can't run screw through it and into the bow.

The pic is just two different versions an early one that has been mounted and used and a semi-production version.

I try not to think too much, but sometimes I can't help myself. Gotcha Danny ;). Thanks.

Good to see you're up and running on the idea Dan. You showed me at Kzoo. Good luck !! Tom

Did the post man show up??? Anywhere?

Sorry...I got mine two days ago. Been really busy so I haven't had time to mount it yet.

From: Jon Stewart

Hoping your product test was your Spin Right, lol

From: Dan In MI

That was ten years ago Jon! Trying something new.

Yes. Arrived safely!

From: PeteA

Yes all arrived. We get to work this weekend.

From: Timbukto

Got mine. Will be working with it soon.

From: Dan In MI

Only heard from a couple guys so far.

Any feedback???

From: Jimbob

I got mine. The wide one works great with a 4 arrow Kwikee Quiver. I have not had a chance to try the narrow one with a quiver. Soon hopefully. I think you have a winner here. One think I wonder about is what will extreme temperature do to the adhesive. Will the cold have any affect, or having it out in the sun on a hot day? Great concept and you saved me from drilling some old bows.

Haven't found a negative used a alpine quiver on mine. Designing a three arrow quiver to use with it. I think the tape is good stuff I am just hoping it isn't to good.

From: Dan In MI

Water and weather will not be an issue if you degreased before application. Removal will be tougher than you think, but won't leave that usual PIA tacky leftovers, and it won't take the finish with it. I've removed it four or five times and 3 Rivers has also in their tests of it.

I have an idea about removal to try soon, that may make it easier.

Hey Dan, I'm out of town on the job. Wife says it came in the mail. Will work with it when I get home. Thanks, Tim.

Works great. I need two more of the wide ones when you are ready to sell them.

I went on the hunt last week in Estill, SC. Temps ranged from the upper 50s at night to 90s on the day I left. No rain. Low humidity. I hunted with the bow for two days, each time from a treestand. No issues. It was and still is quite stable, with little "wiggle" under a full quiver of arrows. When I say wiggle, I simply mean the natural minimal flexing of the rubber sticky pad used to stick the adapter to the bow. The quiver I used was bought in 1981 when I was 16; it is the basic large hooded Kwikee Kwiver. If I had to do it over again I would have mounted the adapter slightly canted, with the bottom part angled towards the shooter, instead of parallel with the undrawn bowstring.

I think the bracket is a winner. Having them anodized to a black color or other "woodsy" color would be great!

Thanks, Dan!

Getting positive feedback.

Some of the suggestions may be incorporated in the final product.

Thank you very much guys!

Guys the one I received is a simple metal bracket with two holes tapped on the same spacing as the quiver bushings that are commonly installed in bows. It attaches to bows that don't have the inserts with a strip of industrial double sided tape that covers the back of the bracket. It works just like it is made to. I can test it for durability on a bow shot regularly. Unfortunately I won't be using it in inclement weather. Thanks Dan. I would think your best market would be with quiver makers/dealers. They could supply them as needed with a quiver. Most folks with a bow and a quiver are already set up.>>>-----> Ken

Still going strong. I need 2 more!

Years ago when I shot compounds and was sponsored by some companies, I pitched an idea that was poo-poo'd, but I still think it may have some merit for all aluminium riser bows.

Machine in a Picatinny Rail on all bows for the sight and rest attachment points. Then all sight and rest mfgs. could design their products to interface with the rails.

Like many ideas I've had, I'm sure someone will get rich off it someday. LOL

That's what the AMO standard was for way back when.
