thanks for the post... My loop broke that the shop had put on and instead of going back, spending 10-20bucks there it costed me a whole 2 dollars worth of string. Even got the loop shorter which made drawing easier and shoots better if you ask me.

I've tied string loops for a while now but first time I ever tied on nock points. Mine seem to be tight and uniform although I didn't use any dental floss to bring the thread back through under itself. Seemed to work ok without the floss. But I want to take this opportunity to thank Greg for posting this great information. Couldn't have tied the nocks without it. Good job Greg!!!!

Thumbs up Tie in a nockset and D-Loop

EXCELLENT depiction of a previously abstract concept - Thank You!
Successful effort on my 1st try YehHah... I too ended up removing the tied D-loop and burning the second ball end off bow to assure that I did not burn (another) string set.
For future consideration I measured it and I actually used a 4" length measured after the melted tip (no Flame) ball ends were fashioned.
I used a brass nock to define the high mark of the nocking point with the D-loop below the nock and above the arrow. The lower leg was pulled up snug below the arrow as I pulled it tight with my release and opposing hand followed eventually by a few dozen test shots to settle the string.

I also re-tied my peep using a variation of your nocking point technique which seems to be working very well indeed.

Knowledge is confidence and you have given this community a gift that MANY ARE SURE TO APPRECIATE.

Thank you!
