Don't like them...they do fly good, but that is about the end of it. They are loud, they create a lot of drag on the arrow resulting in a faster deceleration than a standard fletching, you can only shoot them out of a drop away and clearance problems can be an issue, and if another arrow hits it then you are putting another one.

I've used them and had no issues with them. If you like fletching arrows (I do a lot of customized fletching for the wife) great. If you just want fletching that is very simple and quick FOBs are hard to beat.

I tried to use them, but had to go back to fletching. With a field point they flew great, and I was breaking FOBs at 30 yards. Very inconsistent with broadheads for me though. I'll be giving the NAP Quikfletch a trial run this week hopefully.

I use them and like them. I think the noise issue is much overated, and the speed appears to be identical as they group with my fletched arrows. I find that they do a better job of stabilizing broadheads than fletched arrows.

But, as stated, you can't do much "shooting for groups" with them as you will tear them up.
