    Default speednocks true or false

    I think I'm spending to much time on the computer, but I can't stop looking for usless information. Came across a write up on speednocks. Are these things for real or just a scam to get people to spend their money. Well, yall know the drill, what's the real deal with these things? 5 fps sounds good but is it to good to be true? Let's here about em

    They do work but there's some trial and error involved in getting the right amount of weight at each end of the string and in the right location.

    Not a scam at all. They are worth 5-10fps depending on cam system etc... There placement is done by trial and error in front of a chrono. They are nothing more than brass crimp on nock sets covered in shrink tube. If you have access to a chrono, some brass nock sets and nock crimps.....you can do this yourself. Just be sure to put the shrink tube on after you get them in there final position.

    How much are they worth on bows with Nitro cams?

    I noticed the fastest bow out there, PSE Omen has a lot of speed nocks. It looks like there are 2 then 3 then 2 more for a total of 7 on each end.

    OK, let me try to understand this. They are nothing more than brass nock points. So after trial and error you should get a few more fps. Can someone post a picture of these on their bow? How many of you have done this to your bow and got good results? What bow did you do it to?

    Not real sure on the Nitro cams, as the Martins come with speed nocks from the factory and I haven't had the time to experiment with them yet. We did find by adding one extra at each end on the Alien X we picked up a couple more fps, also had to move the location of them slightly.

    Yes, they are brass nock points covered with shrink wrap. The factory has them pretty close, but you may be able to gain a little more by experimenting with locations and quantities in front of a chrono. Just be sure to shrink wrap the new ones when finished. Saw a guy almost get hit in the eye by one that flew off and bounced off his top limb, because he didn't think the shrink wrap was needed after he had them in place.

    Default speednocks true or false

    Yes, they work, but sure give your chronograph a working out. Worked on PSE just recently. Yep, sure a lot of speed noks, probably 7 on each end of the string.

    Here is a video I found on YouTube showing how to cover them. I like the built in bow press of his bow. How convenient!

    Very cool video. Seems like the shrink tube would slow the bow down. It would be cool if there is a video of someone setting up the bow with the speednocks. Hey, sounds like a good job for me!
