    Lighted Nocks!

    I need some help on deciding to shoot lighted nocks and how to go about it. I just got a pack of glory nocks and after using them a couple times they seem great.
    The issue is tuning, cause I had to make my nocking point a little bit bigger to fit them and now itís affecting all my other arrows.
    So do you prefer spending the $$ and putting light nocks on all your arrows and tune accordingly? Or saving the lighted nocks until hunting season and deal with your bow only being tuned for those nocks.

    I haven’t had any issues with altering nocking points but I’ve only used Lumenoks and Knockturnals.

    i like to practice with them as they aid in seeing arrow flight. Good for aging eyes. Since I like to use them during practice, I prefer ones with replaceable batteries like the Lumenoks.

    How bad is it 'affecting' other arrows? ... point of impact or accuracy?

    Typically adding weight to the back of your arrow isnt a great idea, I would make sure all my arrows are the exact same. Rule of archery is change one thing and everything changes.

    Cool Re: Lighted Nocks!

    Every single arrow I shoot whether in practice or hunting has a Luminok:



    Custom built, with brass front end inserts and 125 grain heads to keep the FOC within desired range.
    These will group 2.5 inches or less at 100 yards if you are capable.

    I simply won't roll without them.

    Cheers,
    Nog
