Quiver is the wrong term - Should be Golf Bag

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Why do we call it a quiver?

 

An archer wants all the arrows in their quiver to be as close to identical as possible. Obviously this in not the case with skis (except maybe a racer that has several pairs of identical skis).

 

A golf bag is made up of different clubs, each one serving a specific function with varying degrees of overlap. I believe this resembles skiing more than the term quiver.

 

And it costs a lot of money to have a complete set - Driver to putter.

Well if is going to be a golf bag then I'll need a caddy. I may need to change skis between runs or maybe part way down the run as conditions change on the lower mountain.

hmm, anymore i know alot of hunters who use different arrows and tips in the same quiver, just depends on what theyre hunting and distances wind conditions if theyre in the woods or not ect... and if you know archery you know its just another money pit hobby and filling out the quiver costs ALOT, so its still a quiver

Phil as an archer/bow hunter I can tell you that the proper bow set-up is with one arrow and one tip. Now, the arrow can never change without re sighting the whole set up, but, I may use a different head in certain short range hunting situations like shoot thru mesh in a blind or a certain broadhead for turkey. But for evey other situation I use the arrow and head I sighted in with.

 

A competitive archer NEVER changes arrows or heads. In fact, they weight they arrows and head to get the most consistency.

 

But you are right about the money pit thing.
