Lighted Nocks

Does anyone use Lumenocks or Tracer Nocks? If so, do they effect arrow flight any? What kind do you use and any cons? The pros are ovious.

I personally don't use them, but a couple of guys in the club I hunt in do. They haven't really noticed any difference in flight.

I shoot luminocks when hunting evening's. It also helps while filming the hunt. I haven't noticed any changes in arrow flight... Some people say that it gives the deer something else to see, but I'm shooting 312fps and haven't had any experience with them seeing it!!!! I haven't had anything that I could call a "con" yet.

If you use the tracers glue the magnet down.. the lil piece of velcro dont work.... the magnet is strong enuff to pull the velcrow loose... I have shot the lumenocs and I am now using the tracers and like em both...

Thanks for the Info guys. Have ordered a 2 pk of Tracers. Will see how they work. Did any of you have tomake any adjustment to the nocks to get them to fit your arrow shafts ?

Received the 2 pack of Tracers from Sportsman's Guide. Only one worked. Will see how customer service handles that. The one that worked did good. Was bright. Only need one anyway LOL Brewer, thanks for the tip. Heeded your warning about the magnet coming off and used a bit of scotch tape as a precautionary and would have lost it if I hadn't.

I learned from experience..... the first ones i got i velcroed down and the magnet is somewhere in my yard where I shoot.... I told Lee at outfitters they need to sell just the magnets because I am sure others have done the same thing..

Been shootin lumenocks the past couple years. Pretty neat to watch that nock disappear right behind the shoulder. Mine don't shoot any different at all.
