I too am interested in this subject. I have heard a lot of good about Nocturnals but there are Luminocks, After Burners. Carbon Express, ect but what do you guys use/like? Why?

These are Lumenocks, for those not familiar with the Burt Coyote brand name.

My personal preference is the Nockturnals.

I have used Lumenocks, Nockturnals, and CE's, I use Lumenocks now, but I'll be changing over to Nockturnals as they burn out. My wife uses Nockturnals.

Ultimately, I like the I/O feature on the Nockturnals a lot better than the lumenocks. The Lumenocks are a bit brighter than the Nockturnals, but not so much so that it keeps me on them.

I have the Nokturnal nocks and the one and only shot I took on a deer with it was a pass through but wasn't able to see my arrow after...after finding my arrow I noticed that the nock had busted off...still I know it worked because I got it on video...

I've used Easton's Tracer nock and Burt Coyote Luminock and didn't care for them. The former requires the use of a magnet and the latter is finicky how it is installed. Also both are heavy and will greatly alter your point of impact and arrow flight as they change your %FOC.
I am currently using Nocturnals and have take 2 deer with them. I use both the green and the red and they are plenty bright enough. And at only about 8grs heavier than a conventional nock, alteration to your arrow/flight is minimal. I've shot them along side conventional nocks out to 50 yds with no significant change in POI.

I have both Burt Coyote Lumanocks and the NocTurnals. I use them interchangebly. I like the NocTurnals better for I have had fewer turn-offs after shooting with them than the NocTurnals. The one and only problem I have had with the NocTurnals was I had one that would not stay off after I kiiled a deer with it. I called them and they said to wash/soak it in rubbing alcohol for a few seconds, shake off, then let dry over night. Problem solved!!!!! Killed 2 more deer with that nock before it was busted on the 3rd. I feel that I will change over to them solely when the BC's wear out.
