    wow, thats crazy. yeah i have a string supressor/decelerator to prevent that. but i didnt even realize the string would go back and forth that much after a shot the bottom cam was bouncing back and forth as well. the tru ball tru nock is lower profile than that one, but ill definetly keep this video in mind i think it has left a bitter taste in my mouth

    but we must consider that the test bow was a M!@##$@%'s on a serious note i've used those when they first came out and had problems with them when sitting in my tree and turning my hand alittle causing that flat spot to kick my arrow off my string and down onto the ground. happened all the time. grrr! no probs with a d loop.

    speed nocks are those located right next to the cam and usually covered with shrink wrap and supposedly make your bow faster.

    Just ordered a string set from Hutch and was asked about speed nocks-just told him factory would be fine since i don't have a crono and my bow is smokin fast with the factory strings

    Is there any other benefits i should know before hutch makes my new strings?

    Your bow will benefit from speed nocks. Your string has 2 top and 2 bottom. This should speed things up

    thanks hutch, was just going to appologise for getting off topic on your single cam question. My opinion-even if it is just an idler wheel, a weight(nock) would be beneficial since the string still travels back that direction. thats just a guess though

    Most of the single cams I have replaced the string on. They only have the speed nocks on the bottom of the string. Some of the string builders are telling me I have to experiment.

    Well to answer my question. Yes speed nocks work well on a single cam bow. I installed 2 on my sting and benefited.

    I actually put some of the 2 finger no-glove rubber attachments on each end on my Onza when I replaced the strings. Can slide them up and down to tune a bit for speed and helps quiet the string.
