    Question Speed nocks?

    Anyone here have speed nocks on a single cam bow? I sure its been done just wondering. I think with my new chrono I am going to experiment.

    I don't on mine, but have considered it with my next set of strings. I would definitely want to have a chrono handy before I really did too much with them. Curious to know what guys come up with on the single cams. Seems like a lot of bows lately are coming with the speed nocks stock.

    i don't use the brass nocks, instead i make 6 wraps with black electric tape and slip a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tube over it & heat, then i put those little bowjax string sliencers in the center of that. trying to kill 2 birds with one stone, speed nock & string sliencer. they have not come loose as of yet , been on my bows for a while now. don't know if they increase the speed or not ,don't have a crono graph . looks kinda cool ! will try and get pics. and post.

    Bowgramp, it just proves you don't necessarily need brass nocksets, but to get the best results a chrono is an absolute must. You have to experiment with just how much weight to add and just how far from the cam(s) to locate it to get the best results. And no matter what people think the speed gain is not enough to be able see with the naked eye or ears. Usually the gain is only about 3 to 8 fps. Still, if it makes a person happy then they are in a positive mood and that helps the mental game.

    i have the tru nock by truball if any of you have ever heard of it, i dont necessarily know if it is considered a speed nock, according to my research it is supposed to increase fps slightly but i have never even shot my bow over a chrono so i wouldnt know.for those of you who have never heard of it it is a metal nock loop and a plate that bolts onto your bow string with tiny screw and loctite. i havent noticed a difference in accuracy or anything the only thing i have noticed is that when i pull the trigger on my release it makes a slight metal to metal sound now because of the initial contact. it does get rid of nock loop flattening and jaw hang up completely, and it reduces spin and slippage, so if anything its a safety feature

    Be wary of this if you don't have a string stopper or something similar:
