What bow quivers are folks using for .204 arrows like axis? I have 2 strap on quivers and both are a tad loose. Thanks!

Axis aren't micro diameter. Micro is .165 ID.... Axis are .204 ID. But, to answer your question Great Northern offers grippers for arrows from 23/64" all the way down to micro.

Order a big jims small diameter gripper, if youre using efa style quivers. Otherwise, great northern or a stykzz quiver.

I use the Great Northern quiver with the medium gripper for my axis arrows. Their small gripper works with the very small diameter black eagle instincts.

I use the small grippers from Thunderhorn for a .204 diameter shaft. For micro diameter, which are .166 diameter, I use small rubber bands around the grippers to hold them. You can do the same on Great Northern Quivers.

Selway offers grippers for micros, standard, and aluminum shafts.

This is a Thunderhorn with grippers added that where cut from surgical tubing. Holds Axis shafts.

Yup, made grippers like that also. Works great.

As folks have pointed out, can make the grippers a bit smaller with rubber bands, surgical tubing, even tape. I've found small rubber 0-rings, available at hardware stores, to work very well and look good doing it.

Works on old quivers that were made for wood arrows, or are stretched out from 23/64s

What is the name brand of the micro arrows? Axis is the smallest diameter I can find

I have Big Jim's quiver, with the gripper's for Axis and it's a great quiver, holds very well, straps on the bow very snug

my Gunshy quiver has two slots... one big... one little. When I shoot my skinnies - I just seat them into the little slot. Boom. Perfect/tight.

I just got some Gold Tip Classic hunting arrows with O.D. 0.274" & I'm looking at the Great Northern Sidekick Quiver. That diameter is above the 1/4" upper limit of the small gripper and just below the 9/32" lower limit of the medium gripper. I sent an email asking which size is best, or if neither will work.

From: Phil Magistro

Before I knew that there were multiple size grippers I ordered "small" grippers for my Great Northern and it holds Gold Tip Classics without problems.

Thanks, Phil. That's what I needed to know. Clint

Selway and GN has micro grippers i shoot micro .166 shafts 90% of the time and have used them and also have used the rubber tubing trick on some other quivers. My new Gunshy quiver that is arriving tomorrow has the slots for .204 and .166
