I just recieved the Alien X that was up for sale on AT. It came with a set of new strings. The strings that were on it had 2 nocks on the top and 2 more on the bottom of the shooting string. Would it have come from the factory that way? Or would it be a replacement for string leach's/whiskers or the like?? I shot it a few times with the nocked strings on it, before switcing them. It seems like there is a slap/crack to it now. Or mabe I'm just hearing things. The strings/splits do sit flat in the cam mod when at full draw, and it's shooting bullets at 40 yards. I also noticed the string stop was pushing the string out a bit, so I shaved some of the rod off with my mill, now it sits flat on the rubber stopper.
So back to the nocks, add them or leave them off?? I'm not a fan of those rubber incerts to quiet down the strings, I saw one split and it nailed the guy in the eye.
