    Default D-Loops and nocks

    Was wondering how many folks use a nock under their top knot of the loop to prevent the nock point from moving and pinching. Had an individual say that they always do to prevent nock pinch but on my old PSE I never did just had a loop installed and never had a problem that I knew of anyways.

    loop only,no nocks,no problems. all is good. the Diamond i had,had the brass nocks between the loops and has some pinch. i pulled the brass off,and tied a new loop. worked great.

    We have used tie nocks or so called soft nocks. One on the bottom of the arrow nock, and another on the top. This does 2 things, 1st it keeps your arrow nock place when you have to replace your d loop. 2nd keeps your arrow nock from being pinched. A lot of pros use this method and it had proven itself.

    it only pinches at full draw, not when the string is at brace ht. i set mine to where it doesn't try to raise the arrow off the rest. i have lots of time on my hands , don't mind locating d-loop position with bow square. but i have also done it the way you do.
