    I am about 99.999% sure that they are legal for everything. You can email starrflight the guy that owns them is a great guy and will answer any questions you have.

    ???WTF??? they are not legal for any sanctioned archery competition Im aware of. Besides the whole idea was stolen from the early 80's new wave band DEVO. You can actully see the band menbers wearing larger versions of FOB's as hats in the video of " Whip It".

    Legal or not they're just a cleaver fad to part you and your money.

    I thought you wanted honest answers??? that's what you got with alittle good humor thrown in. If you want the canned answers you are probably in the wrong place.

    Once you get past the hype......................all you got is hype.

    bowhunterj, if your using axis 300's or 340's I have a few FOBs left you can try for yourself. PM me your address if you are.
    Things to be considered:
    You likely will have face contact (some don't mind it, YMMV)
    They are relatively heavy, so you might consider heavier heads to use with them to offset any FOC issue.
    You need to be sure your can clear your cables, and then be sure you are clearing the rest.
    Not readily able to use lighted nocks with FOBs, though I've read someone did come up with something.

    In my experience they worked but required a little more work to be sure I was clearing everything. Feathers or vanes work just as well as the FOBs so long as you use enough vane or feather for the broadhead.
    Like I said you are welcome to a few if your shooting axis sized shafts.
