Default Need Help with FOC and Lighted Nocks

Hello
I am thinking of using lighted nocks this season. I have bought and installed some nocturnals on My 400 Spine 5mm FMJ's. The lighted nock arrows (FOC 10%) hit 4" higher than regular nocked arrows (12%). My question is should I adjust arrow weight in front to compensate for lighted nock weight difference or should I just sight in with the lighted nocks?

Thank You
Jed Haws

Sight in with the arrows you are using.

Just sight in with what ever arrows you plan on using like Oldtimr said. Even adding weight to the front your arrows will still not hit the same.

I've had change of impact using luminocks but not with nocturnal. when weighed against my normal Nick there was,only a 5 gr difference. not enough to significantly alter my foc %

Do whatever it takes to get the best accuracy. I added weight upfront in your situation, but perhaps you won't need to. Start tinkering; that's half the fun of being an archer!
