Default Instructions for tied nocking points

Help! I must have forgotten something. My nocks keep unraveling. Does anyone have a copy of the procedure? Dick

Two different ways that I know of--tight overhand knots, several of them, alternating sides then finishing off by melting the tag ends and/or a dot of super glue. You can also serve one on, finishing it off the same way you tie off serving.

Thanks Chad. I forgot about burning the ends. Will it work with fast flight or should I stay with dacron? Dick

I think FF would work, but I couldn' t guarantee it. I use #62 braid serving material.

How do you tie off a serving? I did my best job of winging it last time, but when they started unraveling I cheated and put a drop of fletch-tite on ' em.

I' ll give it a shot Brandan--it' s lots easier if you see it done--kinda like tying shoes or twisting up a string.

There are two ways I know of doing it--the first I will explain is the method I prefer.

Wind your serving to within 1/2" -3/8" of where you want it to end. Place a finger at the end of your serving to keep it from coming loose, and pull off 14" -18" from the spool (don' t cut it). Make a cradle (looks like this: U ) and bring the serving tool up and between the U. Serve back toward the main serving, 12-14 times for nylon serving, 20-24 with #62 braid, Halo, or FF serving. Pull off an ample amount (still don' t cut it) to get the serving tool out of the way and let it hang (keeping fingers in place to keep it from coming loose where you have served). Take the U in your hand, and hand serve the remainder--as you serve more onto the main part, the small part will unwind. Pull it tight every 4 turns or so. When you have completely unwound the small part, wax the U. Grab the serving tool, keeping your other hand in the U to keep it from tangleing. Pull on the serving tool, taking the slack out of the U until there is none left (keeping your finger in as long as you can, or you will have a bird' s nest and have to start over). Pull it very snug, clip, and burn off the tag end--you are done!

Another way is to take a piece of serving thread or bowstring material, around 14" or so long, tie the ends together, and wax. When you are near the end of your serving, lay the loop you just made on your string (knot end laying on the main serving. Serve over the loop 12-14 times, leaving a couple inches of the un-knotted end sticking out. Clip the serving thread off, leaving a few extra inches sticking out. Stick the end through the loop, grab the knotted end with pliers, and pull the tag end of your serving under where you just served over your loop, clip and burn.

Hope this makes sense--it' s easier done than said!

Chad
