Hi Everyone

Greetings from darkest Africa ( South that is).

I have been shootin bows 'n arrows since 1978.
My last bow was a PSE Elite Mach IV which I still have.
I decided to take the bow out of "storage"over the Christmas holidays and after shooting a few arrows, got to "googling" the web on latest bows and equipment, and I must say, I was quite amazed.
Anyway -- long story short --- Ended up with a new 70 # and 30 " DL Hoyt Turbohawk, carbon n-fused 340 Easton shafts
On bringing it home, the wife said "Hmmm NEW TOYS huh ! "So I decided to get her some new toys too.
Got her a Mission Craze -- the logic here was If she dont like it, then with a few deft twists of the grub screws, the little 30# 25"DL can transform into a 70 pounder for yours truly ( smart hey).
So from going from 1 old bow, we now suddenly had THREE.
Then I spied an ad in a swop column for a 70 # and 29"DL Bowtech Allegiance. Offered the guy a whole bunch of Radio Control equipment (TOYS again).
SO now we got 4 bows. But there is hope for me as I intended giving the old girl ( the PSE, not the wife) to a freind to get him started in the addiction.

I must say I am enjoying getting all the old muscles back into play and will become a very active archer once again.

I was intriged by the FOB concept and will be trying some out, although from what I have read on our local archery forum is that the local guys all dislike them.
I will be visiting the States in April/May this year and as it will be my first visit we will be travelling around quite a bit ( West Coast, Utah, Oregon mostly). I hope I will find time to get in a hunt, even for a day or two while i am there.
Anyway -- that's me.

Best Regards

Welcome to the Team my friend. As for people around you not liking them its no big deal. If you get yourself a tube and try them out, once they see you hitting the bull from 70 yds out with crazy crosswinds then you'll be the one laughing while there looking for there arrows. Best of luck!

Thanks for the welcome guys !

In all walks of life, usually the "experts" voicing their opinions are people who have no personal experience of something, but heard from a friend etc etc.
I take note of what is being said, but do not automatically subscribe to their opinions. In the case of FOB's I will most definitely try them out for myself.
Natually I will take all the advice / suggestions I can from those who are succesfully using them.

Best regards
