I hadn't used mine 4+ years due to surgery and loss of my hog hunting lease. Shot one of my hog arrows with the Noctural nock the other day and still working after just sitting all that time!

I have never used them. How do they effect the spine of the arrow? I assume they would stiffen the spine. Can you take one of your tuned arrows and just place the nock in and go for it or do you have to tune using them?

I've shot my some of my best 3d rounds when someone in the group shoots with these nocks, but only if they shoot accurately. The lighted nock just recently became legal to use in Colorado archery season, but I don't know why it was outlawed in the first place.

I don't always shoot them but they really help in low light to see where you hit. Here's a hunt that I self filmed where the luminock made it easy to see the hit especially for the viewers watching the footage.

So what are your favorite lighted nocks?
Never used them before.
How many grains are they?

Doing well Drew, waiting on turkey season.

sightsee, nocturnals are highly thought of here. I have tried others but come back to them.

Broken arrows, as long as your setup well tuned its plug and play like drew said. Never had to adjust tune for the nocturnal nock.

is there a preferred color? Does one color show up better than the others?

"Is there a preferred color? Does one color show up better than the others?"

I experimented with red and green Nocturnals while shooting 3D and found the green ones to show up much better (for me).

I love the way the blue looks,but think the red shows up the best. I like the green too,but not as much as the red.

Green all the way.! It is so much brighter than red and blue.

Really helps when shooting a deer- no more guesses during low light situations

I killed a buck this year/ arrow went through and broke off .

My nockturnal stayed on while wedged in chest cavity.

I won’t hunt without them.

I used red for the first time using a lighted nock this year. It was great! My old eyes have trouble following an arrow some times and I was able to see exactly where the arrow entered my buck. I'll never hunt without one after seeing how great they work.

I would've taken better care of myself,if I'd known I was gonna live this long!
