I used the Rod and Bobb light to make mine last year. They worked on all three deer just perfectly.

I may or may not use them again this year. Although they were kind of cool, I just don't see a huge need for a lighted nock. They tend to make me want to peek to see the cool light during flight instead of keeping focused on executing a good shot.

They are great for video.
