Default Lighted nocks??

Hey all...I have used the Lumenok and recently the Carbon express one, unfortunately they both have shortcomings. The lumenocks don't work with my arrows (CX Maximas) unless the metal ring at the back is off the arrow, I found that the probes started to groove my arrows. Not crazy about that! Then the Carbon express ones really pissed me off, 1 works great, but 3 others have screwed up my arrows as the bases came apart from the rest of the nock and staed in the arrow shaft After tossing the arrows out (since I couldn't remove the things) and wrecked them I vowed not to use another one of those. Just wondering what everyone elses experiences are with these. I have been reading the reviews on the Cabelas website and it seems like everyone has different issues with all the different brands. anyone want to comment on what works best for them??? I love them when they work but I sure hate it when they don't!

Also you could try the tracer nock made by Easton or the lighted nock made by G5. These both work great for me. good luck. deerman

I just bought Lumenoks and they light up perfectly, but they shoot a little low and to the left. About 3-4 inches at 20 yds. They weight 13 gr. more than std. nock. Is it normal for them to shoot so differently?

As mentioned, FIRENOCKS are the best of all the lighted nocks. They light up EVERYTIME and with a simple bump to the back they deactiviate. Also, they are available in dozens of different colors. If it's lighted nocks that you want, then you should certainly take a serious look at these. Good luck and good shootin'

Firenocks are the best for me! I had the lumenoks and the tracers and by far the best are the firenocks. Work every time and great customer service.
