Lumenoks are what I prefer, i have used the Tracers but didnt care for the magnet having to be on the bow o activate, I had a few during practice that didnt turn on. The Lumenoks havent failed me yet. I am waiting for ones to get here for my crossbow to try them out.

Firenock all the way. Much better made and has lit up every time.

Search for Nockturnal's. Most guys who have used Firenock's & Luminocks prefer them, and they are priced a bit better as well.

Im gonna have to agree to. i bout 2 packs to mess with them and i love them they work very great and have never failed 1 time. they also come with matched weight practice nocks. They also have not caused any difference in my arrow flight.

make my own, costs about $4 and takes about 5 minutes to do not including drying time.

I bought a pack earlier this yr to try out. 1 out of the 3 pack worked, and that 1 only worked a handful of times. Returned for my $25 and read about making them and did that.

Well whatever you do don't buy the two-pack at Walmart, first one I shot disentegrated when I fired, was just enough left to pull it out of the arrow. Second one shot fine but went out about halfway to the target. When I went to get the arrow there was nothing there.

Only ones I've tried are Firenocks and I've been very pleased with them.
