    hey guys im getting a bow shortly after christmas to start doing 3d shoots next spring and summer. Ive been looking up all the gear ill need and came across a few videos on youtube about the FOB fletchings. They are said to be more accurate than the blazers and wondered if anyone has used these for target or seen anyone using them?

    i actually liked my fobs.

    only reason i went away from them was the whole shooting from a ground blind with shoot through mesh debacle of 2007. lol i've never been the same.

    I have both FOB's and Blazer vanes and imo the blazer vanes group twice as good. Also the FOB's touch my chin while trying to find my anchor point and I hate that.

    I have shot both, and both options have ups and downs. Fobs do shoot a little tighter, so for just target they are good. Blazers don't make any noise when you shoot them, so they are better for hunting. The anchor point problem is also a factor, as is the fact that fobs won't work if your d-loop is too small.

    I love people that shoot fobs! It gives my something awesome to aim at! Be prepared to buy a bunch of extras!

    I am going to buy a dozen turbo nocks. I just can't not try them. I will write up a good comprehensive review when I am done.
