PostSubject: FOB on Bear Charge Bow   Sat Nov 05, 2011 9:07 pm

I am wondering if the cable clearance on my Bear Charge will be enough for a FOB. The fletches on my blazer vanes touch as they pass through. Any experience?

Do you have any pics of your setup? Is the guide rod straight or is it angled?

If it is angled you can loosen it and roll it out of the way and gain more clearance just don't roll it too far out of the way and cause cam lean or derail you string.

if you can post up some pics it may be easier to see, how much of the blazer vanes actually hit the cables?''

Thanks for the responses! VAhunter08. I don't really have pics. The cable slide guide id straight, not adjustable. Olson71, I have been using a whisker biscuit and understand I will have to switch to a drop-away. Just didn't want to go to the expense if my bow was not compatible. I guess what I really need to know is the diameter of the FOB. If I have that, I can measure from arrow to cables and have my answer. rendeer

Ok here is what you need to do cut out of sturdy paper/card stock a 1" circle and punch a hole in the center to run up and down your shaft.

The Diameter of the FOB is 1"(the inner dia where the shaft sits is approx 0.315") so this test will let you know if they will work or not. If it hits the cables you will not have clearance needed.

If I remember right when I placed my FOB on my shaft with my blazers on it the FOB was still smaller. but do this test and you will be sure if it will work or not.

Hope this helps.

Will

Happy to report the FOBs are working just fine on the BEAR Charge Bow. Plenty of clearance for the cables. Using the NAP Apache drop away .full containment arrow rest. Works great. Too windy today to properly tune in the new arrow rest and the FOB's. Can't wait to get in fine tuned and locked in! Already having lots of fun.

That's great rfnorman

I am so very glad that you are able to shoot the FOB's and that the NAP Apache is working great as well. I do think you won't be disappointed with either.

As far as your neighbor congratulations you have made your first sale of many, bet you didn't know you worked for Starrflight. LOL

Keep shooting and more and more will want to know where you get them from and when they see the accuracy you get with them they will want them too. Just watch those groups the will cause you to buy more FOB's fast. no joke try shooting spots and not groups.

Congrats once again I think you have just become a FOB junkie. LOL look on here Paul has some ways you can earn free FOB's

Hey Will!

I get what you mean about shooting spots instead of groups LOL! I did manage to break one that took a direct hit from a second arrow. Was glad Starrflight sends a "baker's dozen." Plan to make a youtube video. I understand you can get a free order of FOB's that way. Will be fun to share the Video with friends as well. Next week Missouri gun season is done and archery season continues. Might see if I can get a kill shot on video. santa

Looking forward to it. Don't forget to post it up here if you do. You can even create a video of you target shooting and post it up on youtube don't forget to mention the website Starrflight with two r's and let Paul know it is posted with the link to your video Paul's e-mail is paul@starrflight.com

Good Hunting

Hunt to live live to Hunt!!
