I have to say they fly great, but where I anchor it bugs the hell out of me. I am going to shoot blazers.

I have no doubt they work well, I just don't like the concept is all and the down sides to using them. I would have the same problem with anchoring. I would probably have to change my form in order to use them.

I thought about using them, but I never thought about the anchoring point ill now, thanks! I'll also stick with my blazers!

That's how I got the batch I tried - from TxJourneyman. Didn't work out so good for me either.

I bought a dozen to try. I agree that anchoring can be different. I haven't shot them at enough distance to tell if they are any better or not. Many on ArcheryTalk claim that they are very impressive shooting broadheads in a cross wind. I had trouble with one of my bows getting the rest to drop fast enough, but I had to retime the rest. Time will tell.

I had toyed with the idea of trying the FOB's as well. But if I don't get my fletching far enough forward it touches my face at full draw. Now that it has been mentioned in this thread, and the way they fit on an arrow, I'm sure they would hit my face - and bug the hell outta me too!

The FOB kinda acts like a kisser button . They can get to be expensive and ruin your arrows !
