    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.

    Actually they work pretty good especially if you just use them for hunting. I don't like the way they hit my face but thats just me.

    I've tried FOBS and can't say they don't work, they do. What I can't tell you is what shoots they are leagle or illeagle for. Contact Paul Morris for that.
    You have to use a drop way rest to even consider it.
