    Free plug for these guys BTW.

    Wayne has always treated me right. He hung a Ripcord for me a while back which needed absolutely no adjustment tonight when I checked FOB clearance. I did hafta tweak my elevation a schoshe. Perhaps because the FOBS are stabilizing sooner in flight? who knows.

    When do you guys toss your FOBs? I got some FOB on FOB contact on the trailing edge when another FOB came screaming into the arrow orgy. Left me with a few tiny burs that could easily be removed with a razor blade.

    Also tugged on a Z7 tonight, rang 64# on the scale. Im sittin at 66.6. The Z7 took 2/3's the same amount of effort to draw and was much lighter ta boot. Uber sexy.

    Don't throw out those FOBs, TWB, until the blades seperate from the core. They will still fly straight during practice, even when cracked! Now, you wouldn't want to disrespect a game animal by shooting him/her with a bum FOB, but for practice, you'll be just fine!

    Shot a few rounds at 50 today. Fairly decent grouping but I lacked in good form. Time will tighten things up.


    If anyone wants to do some 3D let me know. I'm part of the elmendorf club. Would be nice to shoot with other folks.

    Better bring a sack full... They aren't going to survive the groups that a 6 to 8 man group is going to shoot out to 50 yards. Nocks and vanes have a tough time.

    There's no FOB for the fat shafts that the score-shooters prefer is one reason they don't dominate the pro shoots. The other is that pro shooters want to be paid to shoot a particular product. At last word Paul is not into that.

    It's all about broadheads and hunting for me. I shoot 9 broadhead shots to one field tip shot.
