Great link Tim!

I used the tracer nocks 2 years ago, and had zero problems with them over the course of a summer practicing & fall hunting. I'm using woodies this year though :?

Thanks BK - I scanned through the article fast and it
seems very thorough and detailed, the tester really
went all out. Not the usual sales bullshit/hyperbole :lol:

On your woodies, you can always use fireflies to make a traditional
fire-nock, just feed the fireflies freshly ground coffee beans and Mt. Dew,
the buggers are visible for over 100 metres.

Howdy all, thanks for posting the link to my article at; it led me to find a great archery message board that I'd never heard of before!

Anyhow, what I found in my testing is that if you are shooting fast arrows, you'd better be very careful which lighted nocks you use. For shooting under 280 fps or so, most should probably be ok, otherwise make sure you have a nock that will survive the added abuse of a fast arrow and hard impacts. Another nock that has hit the market that is getting good reviews is the Nockturnal. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to test them yet but hope to in the future.

Another article I did that may be of interest to some of you is how I use lighted nocks to help with bow tuning:
