    Default Fletching or FOB swap?

    I saw a thread like this on Archery talk and thought maybe we should start one here too.

    I got a bunch of blazers laying around that I havent used. I need some new colors and I didnt want to add more to the collection. So what about swaping some fletchings? Thought you archers who shoot fobs might have the same situation.

    I got green and white blazer vanes, looking for some white tiger stripe and red tiger stripe blazers.

    Default I am a FOB convert

    I was accumulating a pile of arrows with no fletchings. Some got ripped off with I was using a Whisker Biscuit, and some when I lost arrows in the snow.

    I started seeing stuff about FOBs last year, and it triggered my interest. I ordered a tube, removed the WB and put the Rip Cord rest back on.

    I shot the FOBs and my fletched arrows interchangably this last summer. I did note less wind drift with the FOB's. I am not anal enough about my bow shooting to note substantial differences out to 40 yards, other that on the wind drift. I haven't shot enough at longer distances to have the confidence I will reliably have a well placed arrow. That is something I will work on next spring/summer. However, I do understand the benefit of the FOB really kicks in on the shots out past 40 yards.

    I have found FOB's work well, and I see no reason to go back to fletches arrows.

    Good idea.

    I think a guy should get a FOB for every blazer-vaned shaft that he has laying around!
