    I wondered about the Fobs, but i couldn't see hunting with one; makes it kinda hard to get a pass through, doesn't it? It seems they would hang up on the entry wound...

    No sir. The Fob and Nock pop off during the pass through stage. No fletching on the end of the arrow means less friction. Plus We don't have to worry about the Arrow stopping during pass through at the fletching. Nothing in hunting is a guarantee but I've been fortunate so far. I've seen it around and on the hunting shows. A deer gets arrowed and the shaft gets stuck at the fletching around the ribs or fat and the deer runs around with the arrow 3/4 of the way through them. After the pass through, the fob drops right on the ground marking the spot of the shot. just in case the deer runs off, You have a good starting point for your tracking. I do recommend folks use bright Arrow wraps for easier Arrow shaft recovery. In the 3 1/2 years I've been using Fobs, I've only lost one arrow.

    Nice! Thanks for the info, I had just gone by looks and didn't realize they would fall off like that. I may have to give them a try. Although that would mean that I'd have to give up my trusty biscuit... but then again that means I may have to go shopping for a new rest hmmmm... lol
