Last time I shot, the evening before Saturday's opener, I shot to verify everything at 20, 30, and 40. One FP, one BH. BH arrow had a Nockturnal, FP arrow had a regular nock.
All hit side by side. At 40, I think they were 1" apart, give or take. If someone can shoot well enough to know if that's the nock doing it, I am in awe of their talent with a bow. Both were centered in the 10-ring on my 3D deer, FP hit about a half inch or so left of my aim point, BH hit about the same to the right of it. I'm pretty sure my sight pin subtends more area than the span between those shafts.
I get it....any change likely has SOME impact on the way things are flying, but when they hit like that at 40, I can't see this being an issue for a hunter.
I'm shooting a Hoyt Defiant at about 63lbs, 29", 28.5" Easton FMJ 340's, 2" fusion fletching, and 100gr points. BH is a 100gr 3-blade Muzzy. Plain jane, old school Muzzy heads.
