I shoot blazers and have used them for a while now. Those FOBs are looking pretty good now that I have heard a little bit about them from people that have accually used them. Thanks for the replys

I don't understand the "better broadhead grouping" statement. I can stack several broadhead models with Blazers, FOBs cannot improve that but could be the same.

I'm glad they don't make them for ACC's. And I don't understand the "no more fletching arrows for me" statement either because I really enjoy fletching arrows, it relaxes me.

So they don't offer them for small diameter shafts like the Axis and A/C/C?

I think they do have FOBs for smaller diameter arrows like easton slim techs. Don't quote on that but I think I saw some on StarrFlight.com

Whether it be vanes, feathers, Blazers. or FOBs all that matters is that your confident in your shot..
All I know is when I compared them to Blazers @ 60 yards my groups were tighter and less effected by a crosswind...So in the end I had more confidence with FOBs.. God knows I wish I had the time and money to spend on fletching equipment so I could do it myself or run to the proshop everytime I needed an arrow refletched... I know the FOB isnt't for everyone but it gets the job done for me..I even shot my first ever 300 with em the other night @ league
