Nocturnals

I put on some nocturnals and did some shooting last night at 30 yards. I was hitting the deer target low. Anybody else have issues with accuracy at longer ranges using nocturnals?

Re: Nocturnals

I don't think it's an accuracy problem. They weigh 3 times as much as a regular nock. That much extra weight will make your arrow go low & throw your FOC way off.

Re: Nocturnals

Yep...I love how the packages typically say won't effect flight or something along those lines....adding weight to arrows is going to change its flight...whether the shooter notices or not is the question....


Forget what ones I had....they changed my flight....I didn't wanna spend the money to do all my arrows...at the time I do t think anyone was selling cheaper practice ones...so I gave em up....

Tried making my own which didn't effect flight that I could detect....hit a deer and it went out instantly. So scraped that idea too lol...


Great idea...but the cost outweighs the benefits for me...but I can track my arrows very well as of right now...


Adding weight ton the back will reduce FOC which isn't good...

Re: Nocturnals

They only effect my flight slightly but I just move my sight down a bit and go. Ill always use nocturnals.

Re: Nocturnals

They haven't affected my arrow flight, out to 60 yards with either broadheads or field points. I wouldn't hunt without them.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Re: Nocturnals

I have shot out to 90 with mine with no effect. They add 15 grains to the back of the arrow so as long as you are using a good arrow spined right there should not be that noticeable of an effect on your flight.
