Got my first FOBs a few months before I left for Iraq and was very impressed with them. You have to get poast the looks of them and try em out, they shoot great and I plan to shoot them next year.

I would try them but they are not compatible with the WB, so I guess it will have to wait till I get a new bow. I that won't happen for at least 1 more year.

I tried but they don't fit through the WB... "FOB" doesn't work if "FOB" is on the ground and the arrow is in a tree

I wouldn't mind trying some... anyone know how well they work at longer distances?

Can I get some in blaze orange? Maybe with blinking lights? If I make enough of a distraction when shooting the 3d targets maybe I can actually beat people as they start having seizures from looking at my FOB's for too long

I have been shooting FOBs for 5 seasons (4.5 Years) and am a Staff Shooter for Paul. These are the real deal people. for those who think they are a "gimmick", ask the 30+ animals that have fallen to my FOBs!

I shot my 8 point and two does this year with them. They were on Axis arrows and fob popped off and arrow zipped right through and buried in the ground on the other side, Picked fob up and used the same arrow all season. Went through all three deer, I am using these for 3-D and spots here is my latest 5-spot round.

Do you FOB guys run in packs??

At first you get one innocent little FOB thread, next thing you know there's ten threads about how good a FOB will make you shoot.

PPssssssstttt........I got a secret................

It's the shooter not the equipment that makes a good shot.

Bah don't believe this guy! clearly that isn't a deer he is "pretending" to hold up! it has to be a cow or an overfed pig! Anyone can hit a cow with and arrow!

congrats on one hell of a buck man, that looks like a MASSIVE body, what did it dress out at?

So they will show up real nice on the sheep, elk.... anything that isn't black... cool... if you make the 12 ring, i'll aim for it...
I am not against them... if I had a drop away rest I'd give them a try....

I would use them for hunting or spots but not 3d. There not durable enough for that. I have a friend that shoots spots with them, and shoots good. Just not very practical for 3d. Means you'll need different arrows. Can get expensive that way.
