Default lumenok...?

has anyone used these lighted noks?

i think i would be afraid of game jumping from the speeding light coming at them...they jump string noise and the speed of sound is surely faster than my arrow. (maybe not )

musky, used to use the lumenoks, but now usae archers flames nock. light every time. was told that if you sand the nock opening for the lumenoks, they will work all the time. already switched, so don't know. anyways, to answer your question. have never had any game jump the "lighted nock". not sure if the light doesn't bother them, or they just don't see it. do know that haven't lost an arrow since I started using the lighted nocks.

musky, probably, but thats OK. LOL!!! anyway, before you get the limenoks, check out this place first. sheaper and personally, think they are better. www.archersflame.com. have shot each one of the ones I ordered over a hundred times, and they still work. and they are made for the kind of arrow you shoot. not a one size fits all thing.

I have been using lumenocks for awhile. Absolutely love them! Just make sure they are legal where you are hunting. Some states they are illegal.

When you use lumenoks do you add weight to the tip of your arrow to compensate for the added weight to the back? I have never used them but had wondered about the affect of the added weight on the flight. Iím sure at 20 you would not see a difference, but at 30 or 40 is where I would think it might show up.
