    I agree w/them being ugly but do have a shooting buddy that just started using them and he likes them......
    I cut things up and split them down!

    Wow, did you guys click on that link and see that buffalo ?
    Man, you'd have to climb inside that thing to dress it. Ugly thought...

    I did see these alternate fletching devices and I have nothing to say about them good or bad. I'm not into fall away-rests at all, which you obviously need to use one of those devices. To me there are too many moving parts and too much to possibly fail in the timber with fall-away rests, especially in bad weather.

    It's nice to see somebody thinking outside the box though.

    You would have to have the drop away set perfectly to get it work right.
    Although it looks strange, I would want to try to shoot a few of them to see for myself.
    Also, I think they have only been engineered to work with carbons, so if you are a fan of aluminums then they dont guarentee performance.

    Yeah, I'm a Blazer fan too. I think I'll take a pass on the 'flying saucer' thing-a-ma-bobs. Besides, my Quicktune rest works just fine. For me trying those would be a pretty expensive experiment. I also don't know if they will fit an Easton Axis arrow.

    Default Fob?

    I don't think my Bodoodle would tolerate that.
    A little goofy looking but kinda cool, like me
    Besides I think I've been called that a time or two.

    Cool, Bododdles are good rests. I'd like to get one but they are hard to find and they are out of business. Too bad.
    Would be interesting to see one of those things run through a Bodoodle rest... Parts flying everywhere. Might be kind of dangerous though.

    I love my Bodoodle. My local dealer is selling them for 50% off! It's like $45! I bought 2. I might pick up a couple more.

    Need one?

I still don't have one out of principel that I laughed the first time i saw it. I have no comment and will not laught at this FOB thing a ma jig. My rages fly great so i see no reason to change.
