Just ran accross these recently and wanted to get some opinions on them. Does anyone use them? Are they worth it? Thanks ya'll.

How many FOB threads can we get in one week? Well, since no one knew on the other thread, what exactly happens to the FOB on a pass through shot? Does it pop off? Does it pass through?

I use a Trophy Ridge Dropzone

Here is the reply I gave you earlier when you asked about them hindering pass throughs

.along with the nock they pop off and lay on the ground...which allows for an easier pass through becasue there are no fletchings being drug through the body cavity, just a bare shaft....

I use a homemade lighted nock which stays in the arrow and if that fails(never has) all my arrows have 3 inch reflective wraps...

Sweet. Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like a great idea. I have seen the website, but didn't see a thing about pass throughs.

I can verify that FOBs will pop off on a passthrough. I killed two deer this week with FOBs and they popped off and allowed the arrow to pass through both times. FOBs and slick tricks work great for me.
