Fletching or FOBs?

I have tried them and they are not for me. More drag than 2" Blazers so my long range groups taper off and have less range out of my sliders. Another reason is facial contact. I like to be as consistent as possible and it is harder to do when you have that type of contact.

They are also noisier and over time make your nocks loose. Also can't shoot groups or you will be blowing them up.

They do have some advantages.


Cool concept though.

They can be great, but are not very good for longer shots. They cause so much more drag that they drop considerably at longer distances.

Are they accurate? Why aren't they for everyone?

Facial contact is the most common reason. Also need to use a drop away rest.
I hit maybe 3" lower at 80yds with fobs vs blazers. Haven't had nocks come loose either.
Tryem and see if ya like them. Like i said they have worked great for me.

Can they be moved forward 3" or so? My Blazers a ahead enough to avoid my mugshot.

No they fit on the back of the shaft and have a little lip so they cant slide forward. I only have a little bit of contact on my cheek. Gives me another reference for my anchor.
