Good nocking point knot

Default Good nocking point knot

I don't like using brass nock points. And like to tie it in. But I have a heck of a time getting it to stay in place. When my shots start going down hill, usually its my knot moving (due to I shoot 3 under and my index finger twists it every shot) or my BH changed.

Anybody know a knot that won't move? I have been using the serving knot like Greg/MO ties in the tech section with 4-6 wraps. Also tried some knots which is a bunch of overhand knots front to back. Sooner or later they move.

I notice some say drop a bit of glue on the knot with dental floss or waxed whatever. But I thought the glue would be bad if it made it to the string material.

That's why I always have a roll of dental floss or spool of thread with me. I've never found the perfect knot for a never-moving nock point either. [&:]

When I tie a nock on(I use fast-flite),I fold the string in half with one end longer than the other.Put the FF on the string where you want it set.Take the longer side and wrap as many times as you want towards the loop end,leaving the short tag end sticking out from under the wrapsthen run the tag end thru the open loop.Pull the shorter piece with pliers,this will bring the loop(with the long tag end)thru the wraps,giving a secure nock set.Trim the tag ends and put a drop of superglue or fletching glue on it.I hope that was understandable

That kinda sounds like my serving knot where I pull the tag end thru the wraps and then tighten. I guess I got to try the superglue.

Glad to see I’m not the only one having an issue here. I had tied in my nock point with dental floss and it held up well, but I recently switched to serving thread to be “proper”. It doesn’t hold for anything. I may try the glue or just go back to my dental floss.

Exactly--just like finishing off the serving.

I actually like to be able to adjust mine. I do use a serving thread for the knot that is smaller thenserving though. I just usethe half knot over and under technique. If I need tomake the serving a little larger to match my nocks, I use dental floss.

I only use string nocks. Less wear and tear on the shooting glove too. Here is good set of instructions, however instead of super glue which can eat away at a string I use Clear Nail Polish to seal the knot.

Yea, I have tied this knot formany years, and find it will move on your faster than the serving knot. Maybe the glue is the secret. wood, does this knot ever move on you?
