What are the advantages of the fob, and disadvantages, Like tru flying arrows, and rest limitations you can use, I have never tried these , am just curious as I have never known anyone to use them, Like i use a QAD rest, wud they work in that ? ect.

This is a great technical question that Paul can answer for you better than I can, but being someone who uses FOBs, I can tell you a few of the pros and cons...first you will need a drop away rest with plenty of clearance

Pros
*tighter groups
*better downrange accuracy
*less wind resistance (especially in crosswinds- 75% less than blazers)
*after you hit an animal the FOB pops off marking the last place that the animal stood (where to start trailing)
*you can "fletch" 12 arrows in seconds
*they are rigid, won't tear and even if broken will fly true

Cons
*no more group shooting, you'll get tired of hitting your own arrows and breaking them due to FOBin hoods
*you will get a LOT of looks, questions, and very interested people the next time you go to the range
*you will become hopelessly addicted to them lol

Long story short, you can pretty much destroy a FOB and still shoot 100% with it. I would be lying if i told you everytime i went to a 3D shoot i always used brand new FOBS....If there on my shatfs ans still in one peice then im using them! Awesome product.
