Thoughts please.... One nock or two on string? Shooting three-under specifically.

Thank you!

I think 2 over all is best...but 90% of the time I only have 1...doesn't seem to hinder me even when I'm playing around with unorthodox shots...I like 1 for quick nocking when hog hunting.

I've definitely had my best tuning results with one on each side of the nock. Just make sure you have a little play between the arrow and the bottom nocking point.

I prefer two and shoot three under. I have a 1/16" gap between the bottom of the arrow nock and bottom string nock. At full draw, my top string nock and bottom string nock just come in contact with my arrow nock.

Here's a video on how I prefer to tie those adjustable string nocks.

Two. I use the whip Tie method. I can't seem to get it right using Ryan's method. Just challenged I guess [knothead]

Definitely easier to tie and better string nocks out there. At times, my knot even frustrates myself... [Big Grin] LOL!

Played with this quite a bit and for me, shooting three under, one above and one below works best. Like was stated previously, leave a little wiggle room between the arrow knock and bottom knock point.

2 only because 3 would be overkill😄. I believe it is beneficial.

Perfer 2, however fine with one when concerned with need to quick nock.

Hunting from a ground blind may present nocking difficulties nearing the limits of shooting hours.

Have had mildly cold fingers and could not readily feel the nock index nor the string nock and needed to nock an arrow quickly.

For three under , go with two, unless the string fits your nocks just right. I prefer one under the arrow for split, but the serving and the nock need to be made to fit each other. I get strings from Chad and they fit my nocks perfectly for that purpose. Which reminds me, I need to get a few strings for next spring.

One. Makes it easier to nock an arrow quickly for me. I've shot bows with 2 nocks and didn't notice a difference, I just had to look down in order to nock the arrow, which in a hunting situation I don't really want to have to do.

If you handle the arrow by the nock, it is possible to feel the nocking point or points and hit it without looking. With full length arrows and skinny nocks with no index that may be more difficult. I use Mercury nocks on wood and aluminum.
