I've purchased 5 lumenocks in the last 5 years and I had one that didn't properly. This year I'm try the new Nocturnal Nock. So far is practice and the one deer I have shot, I am very pleased with them.

I've shot my Nock Turnal nock a few times now and really like it. It's very bright and hasn't failed to come on yet. The only thing I don't like about both it and all other standard nocks is how long the ears are, since I have a very small loop on my string and usually shoot short QAD Tune-a-nocks. For $8 they are awesome!

I used a G5 on a small buck not too long ago. The nock no longer works beacuse of the amount of blood that got in it. I enjoyed the nock until then but $20 for one deer is expensive. I should have used the Firenock...

If I remember correctly, FireNocks and Lumanocks are both made by the same place in Henry Il. The Burt Coyote Co. I may be wrong, but look it up. I use the Lumanocks and love them. Have several videos with them, including my Gold Series Catalina Ram taken in Jan. of 2008. It scored 1-3/8ths short of the then World Record!!!!! Red nock on white/tan hair, awesome!!!!!!!!

Default Nockturnal

Nockturnal all the way. I put the same nockturnal through a 7pt, 8pt, and a doe and it stills works great.

I will be switching to the nock-turnals,I have shot the luminoks and they work well and are very brite,but they have to maintain contact with the arrow to remain lit and with the way you have to wiggle them back to turn them off, they become loose pop out and are gone because they turn off as soon as they loose contact with the shaft!
The nock-turnals remain lit until you turn them off!

Lumenok are made by Burt Coyote which use some wire, a LED which make contact with shaft and lights; is located in Yates City, IL
But DO they still need to stay in contact with the shaft to remain lit?
I've lost several luminoks because of this, and when the last one I have is gone I'll be switching to the nokturnal.

Price firenocks charge they should be charged with burglery.

I work in high tech electronics and optics, and shocked that they would demand a price like that.
