Great great post! My question is this, can this be used with brass nocks intead of tied ones? is there a advantage to the tied nocks over the brass?

Sure you could, but brass nocks are considered heavy... hence the tied-in nocksets.

Plus, they look way cooler too.

There's also the fact that by tying in your nocksets, you control the length of the top and bottom. Notice how evenly the release pulls on the D-loop by having my lower nockset approximately twice the length of the top one.

Default Wow I even amazed myself

Thanks, Greg. I know you posted this years ago, but what a web tool. I am a life long sailor and archer and I have never seen a knot tying sequence explained so well. You should do Power Point presentations for a living! I tied one on and it came out perfect. I found one little imperfection in the way the line melted just so I would have an excuse to cut it off and redo it! Then I went and got my sons bow and proceeded to cut his loop off much to his horror. Tied a third one on to his bow perfectly. Kudos fellow Archer! Happy Hunting.!

With hunting season around the corner I thought it prudent to put this back up top.
