Luminok or Tracer nocks?

13 posts in this topic

Just wondering what everyone uses, and if anyone has actually weighed them both to see how much of a difference there is in weight. I shoot beman ics 400 arrows, and luminok didnt really say on any of their packaging which one would work in these... anyone know?

I think beman takes the S nock. It should say on the back of the package.

I like the tracer nock better myself. There are quite a few guys on this site that have had good luck with the lumenock.

I think the tracer nock weighs 28.7 grains. I shoot them out to forty yards with no difference in point of impact.

Ya thats part of the bad thing.. i looked at the packages on all of them and none specifially said beman but one, and it was for a certain other type of beman arrows....

Tracers all the way. They are AWESOME. I had used luminoks in the past with about a 50-60% success with them lighting up. The tracker are magnetically activated and really easy to use. I got mine at Archery Country in St. CLoud. Give them a call and they will tell you which ones to get for your arrows. Also, they are the same price,,,,luminok and tracer....

I have been using the Luminocks for a few years and have had no issues with them lighting up. One needs to set them pretty close and then they will work great.

If your trading, just remember you will need the correct nock for each type shaft.

I wound up getting the luminoks. Had to sand them down a tiny bit, but these things are really awesome. I didnt get a chance to shoot until 10 last night and it was like a lightning bolt. Awesome... dont know how i ever hunted without them. I got 3, shot them all about 10 times and they lit up every time.

Yes, they are great for seeing the route of the arrow flight and also finding a shot arrow in the grass or weeds.

I'm sure both work equally as well. I got my lumenocks last year and watched as one blew right through a doe. Was really cool to see and made finding the arrow almost immedate. I've never had problems with them lighting up. They also fly almost idententical to arrows that carry my normal nocks. Perhaps off an inch or fraction of but nothing noticeable.

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
