Arrow wraps or lighted nock and if so which brand do you like?

7 posts in this topic

I shot lumenoks 2 years ago and the thing never lit up at crunch time and since then have no longer used them, But since then started using crests or wraps and was thinking about trying the tracer nocks instead I would like some first hand stories on this subject please.

Lumenoks for the past 3 years. I love them and only had issues with them once. One needs to have the piece on the end set just right or they will not work or light up. I had to play around with them for awhile before I had them figured out. Nothing better than these for finding ones arrow after the shot late in the evening.

Lumenocks do work great. Truth be told I like the look of any arrow going through a deer lighted or not. Why I shoot them and will continue to is because I have on a couple of occasions lost arrows after being shot and yeah $20 down the drain hurts, but you also have a saftey issue with three rasors sitting on the ground. Anyone who decides to get lumenocks make sure you shoot them often before hunting because they are a little heavier than a standard nock and will affect flight. This next month can't go fast enough.

I like the Luminoc's as well, But I dont use them the way I did a couple of years ago. I use a cat quiver, so I had to keep the lumi's in my pocket so I they wouldnt turn on and eventualy they went missing mad. I got sick of paying for replacements.

Now its white caps with white barred feathers and a clear "glow" over the caps of a few of them. Pair that with green noc's and visibility is not that much of an issue.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
