Looks very interesting.  I am curious to see who has used them and what they say.  May have to try it out.

85 bux is more than I wanna plunk down, those extra pucks are way overpriced.

By the time you get the system how you want it, you're out 150+

I used 2 bow spiders with my setup last season and it worked great. I have one on the EXO pack for steep climbing and another on my belt to carry the bow while calling or glassing.

Cool idea, but yeah the price.  I wouldn't trust it on the back of my pack but having something to hold it on the belt would be nice.  Seems like there would be a rubber coated hook or something like that from the hardware store for a few bucks, I'll have to remember to check next time.

When on your back did it always seem solid/stable? Or does it rock side to side or ever feel like you might loose it?

I bit the bullet and bought one prior to this years archery season.  Overall I was happy with it.  I attached it to the back of my Exo 1800 pack.  I'm 5' 8" and 59 years old.  Having longer arms or more flexible shoulders would have made it easier to use but i eventually got pretty good at attaching it.  Never had any issues getting it unattached.  I took one pretty good fall this year when a stick went under my gator strap and the bow stayed attached so was pretty happy about that.

I wish it was cheaper, but buy once cry once.

Itís a good idea but it seems like a lot of money for what it is. I donít know if Iíd trust it on the back if my pack
