Usually out, but I have shot it in and saw no difference. The last arrows I fletched for myself are 4-fletch.

In. As is often said with a properly tuned set up it doesn't matter. HOWEVER, by running with it in towards the riser, I'm able to run a lower nock point without the lower hen feather hitting the shelf. Better flight overall, plus the lower nock point gives me a litttle more reach.

As already mentioned, if things are tuned right, it doesnt matter. With that said, i always have mine out.

The glue on nocks will stay on, without glue, if you twist them on. At least, long enough to fletch. Then you can reposition them as needed.

On aluminum arrows, you can shoot them, without glue, so you're not wasting nocks in the tuning process.

You're taking a huge risk shooting aluminum or wood arrows if the nocks are not glued on.When fletching either I used masking tape to hold the nock in place then glued them on afterwards.
