The Excel and BlackMax limbs are a great combo! I'm a fan of the Kanati Slim Jim Dual ARC strap-on quiver. It's for 2-blade broadheads, but you can get a regular sized hood for 3-4 blade heads. As for stabilizers, I usually never use one, but I find the Limbsaver S-coils to be pretty good for the money.
I've got an excel with long SF UP limbs. I haven't put a quiver on it but to me it definately benefits from a stab. I tried the sims s coil but I felt it was too light and didn't really help with balance. Now I have a simple cheap 5"-12oz stab and it balances great! It's a great all around shooting bow!
Woodguy, take a look at the trophy ridge static stabilizer. It comes in a 6" or a 9" model either one would work well with the excel riser. They are very well made do a very good job of stabilizing and dampening the bow.
Its hard to explain. As a custom furnituremaker, I can really appreciate a great piece of wood, but sometimes other materials can offer more consistency, strength, and adjustability. I am a tinkerer by nature. I also have rubber grips on handguns and synthetic rifle stocks. Go figure.
Thanks for all your input. I am going to check it all out and am looking forward to shooting the excel. I must admit that a 40 yr old Kodiak hunter is what gave me the bug. Unfortunately, too much weight and a bit short for my 31" draw length.
the hoyt excel will accept the kwikee kwivers - either the bolt on or the older style which attach to the limbs. both work well and are reasonably priced. I have been using a bolt on model for the past six months or so and iy is working well.
I ended up buying a soft loc quiver, and a 12 oz solid stab and tarantulas I robbed from my compound. After fiddling with the brace height and tiller it is MUCH quieter. Just a thump. Thanks for all your input!
