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.

    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?
