Lighted Nocks

I need to build some more bolts for my crossbow and I was thinking of switching to Lighted nocks. My concern is a Luminok weights 27 gr and a regular nock weighs 10

I assume this may affect the flight.

Anybody have suggestions for using lighted nocks and which brand ?

I've use lumenocks on my Parker crossbow for years. The only real difference I notice is that the arrows with the lighted nocks is they drop slightly more at a given distance. Like for my 30 yd pin/mark on the scope if the normal nock is dead on, the lighted nock hits 1/2" low. I assume this is because the very small gap between the nock and the bolt shaft that is needed to keep the nock turned off until the arrow is shot.

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

I used Nockturnals on my Parker and they worked great. Weight was not an issue. I sighted the bow in and saw no difference between the original Parker nocks and the Nocturnals.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
