Default F.O.B.'s? (fletchings only better)

ive never used them and i shoot just fine with fletchings. i have nice groupings and havent had any problems with them, yes you have to re fletch but thats just part of it. I thinks it kinda weird how they pop off on pass threw because with out a bright colored fletching or FOB on your arrow it will be impossible to find in the colored leaves especially cause your arrow is usaully camo or black and covered in blood! anybody here use them? how much are they?

Talking Fobs

http://www.starrflight.com/ Nockturnal lighted nocks are FOB friendly. I'll be using them after hunting season is over and i take my whisker biscuit off.

I have used them for 2 years or so, and I dont think I would go back to vanes.
I use 2 different rest QAD Pro and the Ripcord, both work perfect

do you have any difficulty on a pass threw finding your arrow since the fobs pop off?

After looking at them on on starrflight.com, the engineer in me is very intrigued. I may have to try some here soon. Thanks for bringing them to my attention Huntingkid!
