I think things like that are neat and I'd be more than interested in giving it a try just out of curiousity, but to be honest I dont think I'd use something like that "in field", I like my gadgets just as much as anyone but I have a KISS mentality when it comes to my actual hunting equipment(bows/arrows/guns) and something like that wouldbe a little too elaborate anduntrustworthy for me


neat idea though, it really gets the mind workingonways to rig up a crossbow nock

Tenpoint uses a nock called the SuperBrite which is a 22/64 neon yellow end caps.

Hi
I have just been on my web-site and it appears to be o.K. in reply to what did I come up with for a nock, no nock, a flat end plug made from green clear plastic turned down to the inside dia of the shaft, then turned to the out side dia
Regards
Robin
