hey hutch I saw that on AT.. is a cool idea, easy enough too.. I even found the thrill lights in waly world as well as in another store ..but we cant use lighted nocks here unless its just for fun... I may make some up just for shooting some flu flu's at night..peskey critters in the trash ya know
Now about that shooter machine.. post up a pic some time

So what kind of group did the machine shoot at 100 yds?

I made a couple of them today. Easy enough to do. I'll try them on Saturday and let you know how they work.
I also bought translucent nocks.
Light off. . .
. . . light on!
that looks real nice, sure lights up.
Now I gather by the pictures it is the come on after the shot type. green cut of nock holds it in place while red ( is that been sanded) turns it on/off.
or is the green just to help hold it in place... whats it group like with non lighted arrows.. just curious here. I could not hunt with that but sure would be fun to play with.

Guy came to the shop and was using these. Said they cost about $4.00. I turned off the indoor range lights and watched. The nock came on at the shot, before the arrow left the bow.
Not sure how the they work - the light is a plunger? The green thingy?
I know we had Lume Nocks and those ones with the magnet - just hanging on the wall, year old, every battery is dead.
Great job, Stephane! I guess i'll start a search at our fishing shops, hope some of them to sell the Nite Brites. The illuminated nocks sold here are 11 euros (about 14$) for one which is insane.
