I have been very impressed so far. I have yet to put an arrow through a deer, but I hope to change that soon. I got black ones first, and re-ordered lime green and also ordered glow in the dark stickers for them.

I still cant get over how they look, but they fly very nice.

I can't imagine that they would work with every setup. I had never heard of them so I went to their HSOforum, sounds like a great idea, but what happens to guys like me who shoot a whisker biscuit? I would think that the thing would fall off just like they demonstrated in one of the videos on a pass through.

There are still people using those biscuit things huh. Just kidding of course, you need to have a drop away style rest and not all of those work because it does require a fair amount of clearance. They shoot well and I think they would work great for hunting. Good luck and I want to hear what your opinion is when you get a chance to shoot them.

Crazy ice.. You are correct, You must shoot a fall away rest to have the FOB work.

Guess I'll just stick to my AAE fletching then. I wouldn't trade that wisker biscuit for any other kind of rest. I think that it has helped my shooting.

I've got some too and they shoot great. I won't be hunting with them this fall, but I plan on using them in the spring for turkeys and hopefully next year I will have separate arrows dedicated to Fob'n

Shot My fobs today, They seem to be shooting well, One thing I noticed when shooting broadheads they actually twist into the target, you can feel it when you pull it out, much more than with the vanes I was shooting. Grouped 2 tight enough to pop one of the Fobs off kinda cool to watch those things just pop off like that. We will see, going to shoot some more with them before I make the all out change but so far so good.

Goodnews! I got them today! Man they are small. I already have 4 of them set up and will be going right to the field today after work to try them out.

One thing about the cust. service at StarrFlight, they are sure quick to reply to emails. It is nice to answers to questions from companies that quickly. A breath of fresh air as they say.

I hope I get the same grouping "problem" ac777

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
