lighted nocks

7 posts in this topic

Just curious what everyone has tried as far as lighted nocks. I used lumenocks the past couple of years and wasn't really happy with them. Shot way low(weight), they didn't seem to last long, and they didn't seem real bright. Tonight I tried out an easton tracer nock and I was very impressed! The magnet activation was easy enough and the nock had no effect on my arrows point of impact. It also starts to blink after about ten seconds when shot. This should help in finding your arrow after the shot. Only thing left to ponder is the longevity of the battery.

I also have been thinking of switching to the Easton Tracer Nocks for this season, I am just not impressed with the performance of the Lumenoks i used last year. Did the Easton's light up every time? I have heard reports that on some shots they wont light up.

The Tracer nocks are the best, i have used the lumanock for a season and i last year went out and bought 6 tracer nocks. Have not had one go bad or one ever not work. They say they last 90hrs. That is plenty long. By the time you use them for 90hrs they will have something out that is 10 times better. They are the best on the market now. Stop thinking about it, just go get them, i love them.

I wouldn't think of going bowhunting without a lighted nock on my arrow. Have shot 2 deer with lumenocks and they seemed to work good, but I will be looking into the Tracer.

I have used Lumenocks for the past 3 years and have been nothing but happy with them.

I have never once had an issue with them not lighting up. One just needs to make sure you have them set right and they preform flawlessly.

The lighted nock really intrigued me. What I don't like is the price tage at $10 a nock. I did a little research online and found a video on youtube that had a step by step process for making your own. I now make mine at about $4.25 each and it only takes 5 minutes. Check it out! I think I enjoy watching the arrows fly even more than the lumenocks because I built these. I am not sure who came up with the idea, but they work great.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
