    Folding bow stands for recurve

    Hi,

    I'm thinking of changing my tube type bow stand. The legs are kept inside the tube for storage and screw into the bottom of the tube to make a stand. It's fiddly and tedious.

    I'm looking for a folding stand that is suitable indoors and out, one that is set up or packed away in a few seconds.

    Any recommendations?

    Cheers

    It's not often I say anything nice about a Cartel product, but the Cartel RX10 stand is excellent. Quite long, but folds up quickly and neatly. It can hold a bow either vertically or horizontally, so it's handy when doing maintenance work too. And it has a ground spike for outdoors, which slots away when indoors.

    Looks good. Just how long/wide is it when folded up?

    I've had 2 RX10s (only reason for getting the second was colour co-ordination) and I'd agree that it's a good product. However, as with all Cartel products the manufacturing tolerances are a bit rubbish. On the current stand I'm using the thread on the leg locking system jams almost everytime and I have to "persuade" it to unscrew while packing up. The other RX10 I had did not have this problem.

    Thanks for all your help, guys.

    At 23", it's a bit huge.

    Has anyone had experience of the Sherwood folding bow stand, or the Sebastian Flute Elite bow stand?
