Lumenok?

Has anyone had any experience with a Lumenok crossbow bolt? I was looking at possible buying some to try out this coming season, but I have heard mixed things about them. Does anyone have any personal experiences with them, and if so good or bad?

Re: Lumenok?

The lighted nocks work well. I have heard their arrows are not that good. I have never shot them personally.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Lumenok?

I like Lumenoks. I do not like the Lumenarrows very much. They are Victory shafts which have always flown good for me but for some reason, the lumenarrows shot bad in several of my bows. I would not hunt with them in my bows.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Lumenok?

I wouldn't take Lumenoks if you gave then go me! ! I actually gave all mine away. Every deer I ever shot with them they would shut off on me. I switched to nufletch and not a problem since.

Re: Lumenok?

Never had a problem. No failures on 10 plus deer. Easy arrow recovery. Will use them as long as they are around.

Re: Lumenok?

I've used them with good results. Only thing I don't like about them is after the hit/pass through, they have a tendency to shut off if the impact is sharp enough, causing the switch to rebound. Other than that love em. I've been using the nocturnal nocks and I gotta says those puppies are BRIGHT and they stay on...even after they smack into a maple limb you didn't see that just jumped in front of the 8 point my bolt was about to double lung... Even with the capture nock part torn off the darn thing still shined bright enough to be see sticking in the dirt from 30 yards away in broad daylight.
