Hey, everyone. I'm looking into Octane's new line of equipment and would greatly appreciate anyone's opinions of these products. Advantages and disadvantages? Thanks.

I don't know about the new 09 stuff, it looks a bit much but I have thier original quiver and I can see it lasting me for manyyears.

I use the Octane Hostage Pro rest, been on for about 2 weeks, seems really nice so far.

i have a hostage pro and i love it but i think there r a few cons. i wouldnt recomend it if u shoot alot because after awile the brisle things start to wair out. i think its better than the wisker biskut because there r no fletching contact and u can adjust it to fit the diameter of ur arrows perfictaly. i think its the best rest for hunting but not for ashooting league. i also like it cause its looks preaty badass to.

Octane is now using a new stiffer bristle with the Hostage Pro. Contact your local shop about getting you some.

I use the Quivers and they are Nice, quality throughout. I Love the adjustability, and QD feature. These quivers will be passed from bow to bow for several years.

I also have the Octane stabilizers on a couple of my Bows and they perform as advertised.

I have the octane 1 piece quiver. Best quiver on the market.
I too am looking into the pro hostage rest.
A buddy uses the hostage rest and loves it.
And the new sight for 09 looks bad ass.

I think Octane puts a lot of quality into all of there products.

I used the hostage pro for about 4 weeks and ended up selling it for about 20 bucks. the brushes wore out fast because I shoot alot so I have switched to the trophy taker .
The rest would be good for someone that doesnt shoot much but for someone like me who shoots around 200 arrows 4 times a week this rest isnt the best choice

I have used various Octane products over the last year or so that they have been in existance.

Positives:

- Extremely well made
- Innovative designs

Negatives:

- Some of the products are quite expensive.
