PostSubject: Hello from N.E. Wisconsin   Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:56 am

Been deer hunting with rifle since I was a kid and bagged a lot of deer...but lately - HUGE dry spell. WI DNR has been having a lot of trouble trying to manage the deer population and it has become pretty useless to sit in the woods for the 9 day gun season. Very few shots even heard...but that doesn't stop the wife from asking why the venison isn't in the freezer. Soooooo - time to change tactics. My son was 6 and was playing with a home made bow from a stick and string. Picked up a cheapy used bow for Christmas for him and of course I had to pick up a bow for myself - an older Jennings Buckmasters. We are having a ball shooting together now. The cheapy bow was just to see if he would stick with it - which he is so it looks like a Mission Craze is in his near future. I will stick with the Buckmasters for a little while.

As with everything I get into, I want to learn as much about it as I can. When I bought the Buckmasters, the seller gave me a bunch of old arrows that needed refletching. Not knowing much, I went out and bought a bunch of Blazers and an E-Z Fletch tool. They work fine and I can fletch an arrow start to finish in about 5 minutes, but now you guys have me thinking about these FOBs.

As if there wasn't enough to learn about strings, cams, rests, sights, broad heads,.........not fletchings aren't even a given. I see more $$$$ being spent in my future! Better have some venison in the freezer or my wife will really be giving me the evil eye. Evil or Very Mad

Welcome to the Team....

One thing about fobs is that they last alot longer then any other fletching in retrun save you money....

Sometimes I wonder when I watch the videos of you guys shooting and I see FOBs flying off and getting cracked. Still - pretty cool concept. I might have to get a tube and try them. Just don't know if they will work on my Easton arrows.

Sure buy a tube and the next batch of arrows you have to fletch, ... don't. Remove the fletchings and put the FOB's on instead. Do you have a drop away rest?

Try them I don't think you will be disappointed, If you are then sell them they don't last long on AT or I an quite sure there are members here who will take them off your hands as quik as you can blink. I'm one for sure.

Try em you got nothing to loose you were going to refletch those arrows anyways.

Welcome to the team.

Live to hunt hunt to Live.

I may have to do that! I have some more arrows right now that need to be fletched. Just need to see how it will work out with the Eastons.

WisDeerHunter what Eastons do you have?

Let us know or you can look them up on the order page at Starrflight Order Page Just place your cursor over the size chart info under the Axis or Standard FOB Titles and select your arrows to find which FOB's will fit your arrows.

Let us know if you need anything else it does not have to be FOB related we are all here to help one another.
