McDave,

Fantastic Video, I was wondering what material you use for the tie on nock? I was wondering if dental floss would work in this application.

I've been using tie-ons for a long time but that is the easiest way I've seen to do this! I always say "if not broke don't fix it" but definitly will change the way I tie them on. Thanks McDave.

Great job Dave!

Thanks for sharing that.

My 1st thoughts were, that would be a good way to serve up a nocking point for those who would like to try shooting without a glove or tab.

I know I am tempted. Why! Just because I can....lol

Thanks agin!

God bless,Mudd

Gator, I've tried a lot of different material for the tied on nock. The one I used in the video was dacron bowstring. I've also used fastflight bowstring and serving thread. You want to use something that is thick enough that it actually works as a nock; some material is so thin it sort of disappears in the serving and the arrow nock might slip over the end of it. I've also tried some material that is too thick, like bowfishing line, and doesn't seem to work as well either. I haven't tried dental floss, but it might work if it's thick enough to function as a nock.

Dave, is that style so tight that you cannot twist it up and down to fine tune your nock point or is that an option.

I'm trying this. I've always hated brass nocks, but have never had luck making/glueing tied nocks before.

Steve,

Earlier, I would leave the knot a little loose and then I could screw it up and down the serving and adjust it a little. I would tighten the knot after I got it positioned where I wanted it. Generally, I found that this required gluing the knot after it was in its final position, as it didn't seem to be quite as tight as when I tighten it at the same time I make it.

However, I prefer tightening the knot at the time I make it, as it seems to stay tight that way without the need for glue, and makes it easier to replace than a glued-on nock. I use a loosely fastened metal nock during the tuning process, and then replace it with a tied-on nock when I know where I want the nock point to be.

The nock material does get worn after a period of use and needs to be replaced, or I might change my mind about where the nock should be located, so I do get a fair amount of practice making these things. Enough that I can anticipate the shrinkage that will take place when I cinch up the knot and so extend the wraps a little further down the serving than I want them to end up after I tighten the knot.
