    Default Nockturnal Nocks

    Okay, I was reading on another forum how awesome the Nocturnal lighted nocks where and I sice I have never messed with my arrows before how do you take off the old nock? I am assuming it is glued in or something.

    Depending on what arrow and nock you are using, but most just push on/pull off.

    Nice, it is good to hear that they may be just pressed on. Does anyone here use Nockturnal nocks? I looked on their website to check and see if the ID of the arrow makes a difference but they have no real information on the website on what nocks fit what arrows or min I.D. of the arrow to fit the nock. I have Easton Carbon Storms and was trying to find out if the one that fits most arrows will fit mine. I like to do a little research when I am paying that much for a nock.

    I use nockturnal nocks... I LOVE THEM never had one fail, and have TONS of battery life. I installed mine on Carbon Express Mayhem arrows, and all I did was pull the old nock off, and press in the nockturnals... THAT'S IT! I like how they use a regular button to activate the light, rather than motion, or using the aluminum arrow as a conductor... I have never had one shut off hitting a target, or anything... they work awesome... and they are great for the price too. I can get them for $15 locally for 2... which is 25% cheaper than Lumenoks....

    The nockturnal nocks are awesome. I just bought some the other day. Easy prep, just pull your old nock and push in the nockturnal. There is a little hole on one side of the nock that use to turn them off. All you need to turn them of is one of your other arrow heads. Great product!

    Don't they automatically come on when you shoot them or do you have to do it manually? I thought the switch was just to turn them off?

    Yes they do automatically turn on. I tried them for first time last week. The release of the string triggers the button to turn on the nock. To turn it off you use a pocket knife or any sharp point to push it back up. They are much more reliable than lumenoks and esp Easton tracers. The tracers are horrible and had to use a magnet and batteries did not last long on those as well. My buddy complained to Easton about those nocks and offered to give him like 2 packs free. The guy from Easton even admitted when it comes to arrows we do it right, but when it comes to lighted nocks we are not there yet. The design of the nocturnals are perfect.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that you have to make sure they fit on your arrows. I have Beman arrows and they are the older ones from a few years ago. When they made the nocturnals they were made to fit the newer Bemans as (S) nocks. I had to buy the Gold Tip (GT) size to fit my Bemans. They are very difficult to get off without breaking them once you have them on. Make sure you line the nock up right esp if you have a containment rest. For a fall away would not matter with no fletching contact to the rest. The only downfall I hear is you cannot replace the batteries. Once they go out thats it. I heard the batteries last a long time though.

    used them last year cuz they were on sale, pretty cheap compared. kinda a pain when you accidently set it off and you gotta dig for something to turn it off(happened more than once, maybe even more than five times) - (spend lots of time in trees) blood and fat really messes with trigger causing failure for me, but reliable.
    New arrows this year don;t know which route i will take

    ive thought about trying lighted nocks. just keep changing my mind when i see the price. it would definately make sense for me to get some with all the hunting i do at night. seems like a no brainer. but the price thing...

    I had a $15 gift card to Sportsmans guide so I purchased a set of size S Nockturnal nocks. I figure it should help with losing arrows and maybe even night time tracking if the arrow doesn't pass thorugh. It may be worth the $24 Hawg.
