lighted nocks

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
