    Probably the worst was a "3 point" seat for ground blind hunting. (Tripod type stool) That 3rd point sticking up between your legs gets painful after a while. Used one of them 3 times before the front attachment broke, got 4 trips out of the other one before it snapped.
    I've bought several broadheads that were far less than satisfactory as well. Had several come apart in a foam target on the first shot. Several that rattled like crazy when shot, and a few that were so far from true that you couldn't even shoot them. Well, you could once........

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Bought my house in 1977, a little 900 sq/ft rancher ($35,000), which I'm still in today. Original plan was to upgrade after about 5 years, but due to work it didn't happen. Kind of small with wife and 2 kids, but after a few years the kids were always outside. Then they grew up and out and the place is plenty big enough for just the two of us now.

    Getting serious, and back on track, I can't think of much that was a total flop in archery. Bows, broadheads, arrows, releases, you name it? All pretty good for their day but much everything is so improved from the 70's so anything that I would consider not to use isn't even available any more. Only one thing comes to mid right now and that would be those old Cobra stabilizers that were nothing but a hunk of machined steel about 4" long---totally worthless. A stabilizer less than about 10" long is not really a stabilizer anyway. It's just a hunk of weight.

    Truball alloy Release Loop... Still have it somewhere. Due to the high weight the string hit the bow window and damaged the arrow rest and cut the bow arm open..
