Default Lumenok or Tracer?

Just wondering what everyone's preference is? Thanks!

Id give nockturnal lighted nocks a look. I have used lumenok and tracer and have had several issues with both. The new nockturnal nocks by doubletake archery are less expensive and I believe they are a much better design.

i was looking into them and they look great, but i shoot lumenoks and havent had a problem yet. but ive shot them next to tracers and there is a huge difference in brightness. lumenoks are easily 2 or 3 times as bright as tracers IMO

I have had lumenoks split where the string makes contact and also had them light upon shooting and then go out as soon as they hit the deer.
Used Tracers and had some not work out of the pack, they replaced them and the new pack had one that didn't work. I like how the tracers blink- much more noticeable than a steady light, now I don't use either.

I have thought about getting both of these and after a while i just gave up because there is good and bad reviews for both. I'm just going to save my money and follow the blood trail.

Ive been shooting Luminoks for years and they worked pretty darn good "most" of the time. I tried Tracer nocks and Firenocks all last season. I honestly didnt care for either, they both worked, sometimes, but not nearly as reliably as the Luminoks.
