lighted nocks

I just got Nockturnal lighted nocks for my East on Bloodline arrows. They are a real pain to turn off once nocked. You have to use a knife or pin to "switch" them off. Have to wear reading glasses to see the tiny spot and its a lot of movement. I recently saw an ad for a different brand that only requires a "twist" to turn off. Does anyone have any sinight as to what type it was and if they can fit Bloodline arrows or have any other types of lighted nocks that can fit Bloodline?
Thanks in advance...

Re: lighted nocks

In the past I had a set of Lumanocks (SP?) and to turn them off all you needed to do was pull them back from the arrow shaft just a tad and this would switch them off. The forward pressure of the string when firing the bow would push the knock into the arrow shaft thus making the electrical connection and lighting the nock. They lasted for a very, very long time. Once or twice I forgot to disengage them and although this must have shortened their life-cycle they were good to go anyhow.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

What ever lighted nock you get, you need an "H" nock size to fit the Bloodlines.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: lighted nocks

I have Nocturnals and Lumenoks. Both light well and stay lit. Lumenoks take a little more work sometimes to get them properly seated in he arrow shafts, proper fit is essential to the Lumenoks operation which as stated above is based on electrical conductivity. The Nocturnals just slide in and operate by a little plunger and switch in the nock. Lumenoks are easy to turn off. You basically hold the arrow shaft and wiggle the nock to break the electrical circuit which turns it off. Nocturnals require a small object to insert into the side of the nock and turn the small switch off. The Lumenoks battery can be replaced if it dies. Nocturnals cannot.
I also have Firenocks and have used them on crossbow bolts. They are nice nocks also, but a bit more pricey. The nocks I mention above are all on Easton Powerflight arrows for a vertical bow.

All in all, my nod goes to Lumenok based on my experience.

Re: lighted nocks

I'm a Lumenok fan. As stated above, they take a little more work to make them fit right. Once that is done however, they work flawlessly!

Re: lighted nocks

I've been using Nockturnals for 2 seasons and really like them. If they are turning on when nocked you are pushing them on too far. As soon as you feel the click stop pushing. I tried Lumenoks and Clean Shot Nock Out's and went back to Nockturnals, they are my favorites. I also use Bloodline arrows.

Re: lighted nocks

I like the Lumenoks. They are very easy to turn off.

I will never understand why people can be so blinded by a liar.

Re: lighted nocks

I bought the nocturnal this yr like them, but the problem i have is as soon as they touch the string (the little plunger) the light comes on so i pulled it off and use a different bolt without them any help on that?

Re: lighted nocks

Alfonz, I've that same issue with some Nocturnals, both crossbow and regular arrow styles. Seems like certain ones just have a looser plunger or something and I've found no cure for it other than making sure you push the switch all the way up and off.
