Interesting.. but I am not rushing out to purchase them. If anyone does use it, I would be interested in knowing how they actually perform.

Have to say i had no clue what it was before i watched the video, but it seems like it could be a good idea, i just don't know about the aerodynamics about it.

50 grains to me is enough to worry about arrow flight, even if they say it won't effect it....

Quote from the website:

"You MUST cut your arrows 1.5 inches beyond your arrow rest to allow clearance for the cartridge."

Interesting, but it's not for me. Even if I were tempted to try it, the above statement would be a show stopper for me. I'm not about to buy all new arrows to accomodate this requirement.

Uncut arrows would be the right length for my setup to accomodate this capsule. Thinking hard about giving it try. If it works and it doesn't affect arrow flight, then I think it is worth the 'insurance' it gives me. Plus it comes with the special 'black light' flashlight. That thing alone is pretty cool!

I will wait till they make a gps chip in an arrow and then you can locate it with out any actual tracking skills, till then I will do it the same way my grandpa did it, and the same way his grandpa did it.
