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.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
