Default Lighted Nocks, Anybody use them?

I am thinking about trying out lighted nocks. Has anyone used them? Any feedback would be appreciated.

I shoot the Burt Coyote Lumenoks and wouldn't go hunting without them.

If you care about this sort of thing:

Fair Chase Rules for entry into Pope & Young -

Disqualification-
7. By the use of electronic devices for attracting, locating, or pursuing game or guiding the hunter to such game, or by the use of a bow or arrow to which any electronic device is attached.

I'm not for or against them, never used them, think they're neat, but one day I plan to be on that list.

I wonder if they consider LEDs on sights to be a disqualifier??

Do they affect arrow weight? Also I understand how they are activated but what about turning them off?

Point well taken HAZ, but I really don't think I will run across any P & Y bucks on my club.

Yes they affect arrow weight. They add about 22 grains to your total arrow weight. They are activated by the string pushing the nock into the back of the arrow. You turn them off by pulling them back out slightly. We are only talking millimeters here.

Yes I tried the Tracer nocks. They are very well built but are about 15-20 grains heavier than the Lumenoks. They are also activated by a magnet that you velcro onto your riser.

Thanks Mike,

I think I will give the Luminocks a try.
