    Thanks Montalaar. I know the servers are great. I just needed to know if the knocks did. Yes they are a little bit pricey but just thought they were better.

    Not me. I just can't see spending as much for a nock as I do for arrows just so I can see where it's going. Besides that I learned 35 years ago from a coach that the best shots I'll ever make are those where I don't see the arrow go; aim the bow and forget about the arrow. If you do your job the arrow will be right where you were aiming when the bow went off. You just have to aim and have confidence in your ability.

    I have not tried them. But I know people who have and they are great. They are expensive. Here is a link to build your own.

    I think i could send you two or three Beiter Hunter 19/2 in flo orange if needed. I'd just need your postal address if you want. I am not sure if they would fit into your arrows though. Beiter makes so many different nock sizes to fit as many as different arrow shafts at all.

    Try them if you can, H~n~S. They are pricey but in my eyes they are worth it. I use the same nocks i bought around 2 years ago for my GT arrows because they are so reliable. My Easton nocks always wore out a bit. Not to talk about the GT nocks that break from time to time...

    Hey that is nice of you Montalaar. I appreciate it but I know they won't fit. But that is ok. I looked on there website and yes they make a lot of sizes. But they look well made. That is what counts. I have Black-hawk vapor pro arrows, and the nock looks like a knock off of GT nocks. And you are absolutely right they snap after a while. I do not like that at all since they fit properly and shouldn't break.

    Yeah, they may wont fit in those arrows. I cannot tell you anything beside the information that is on their website. I used the Beiter nocks as Pin-nocks on my ACEs. The arrows broke within 3 months. The nocks are still here with me. Although i do not need them at all.

    I target shoot in the basement a little under 20yards. Last night I broke another nock just regular shooting. I think I got a bad batch. That would be 7 of them broken out of 12. I don't need to be changing nocks every other shot.
    Expensive arrows to be breaking huh. It would be better for the nocks to break and the arrows to make it.

    I try not to be so accurate There are no spare nocks for my Al arrows and if i break them i have to carve new ones from hardwood which is a slow job. And don't want even to think about destroying one of my GTs.
