    Question Why Pin Nocks?

    What is the point of pin nocks? What brought them about?

    They will save your arrows from the nock hunters. These are the guys that I shot 3d with . First arrow in the target is the aiming point for the rest of us.

    With there solid bushing they will knock the next arrow of course.They will save your arrow from being the lead arrow in the "Robin Hood" . Thet add alittle of weight to the back of the arrow.

    I have pin nocks on my deer hunting arrows. I wanted the added weight to get more KE and momentum. My arrows use a heavy half-outsert, (43 gr.), so with a 100 gr. head, that was 143 gr. up front. Good for FOC, but it was a bit too high to me. The pin nock helped balance the arrow better. Now I'm at about 17% FOC.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    those are different. I can see how they'd be effective. I might have to try them. Thanks for the pic.

    I don't have them I have bushings, but I would use them when I get new arrows. They certainly spare the arrows.

    I'm not too proud to ask...but how are these used, installed etc. I'm not even sure what I'm looking at.

    This small nock slides over the pin.



    The other slides in the back where a nock goes and the little pin sticks out for the nock shown above.
