Correct nock for a Parker Tornado

I have been shooting this crossbow with the half moon nocks that it came with as well as luminocks and nockturnas.
I have now seen that the warranty is voided if I do not use capture nocks. That is contrary to the owner's manual and warranty info that came with the bow. I understand that things change so what should I be using?
I love this crossbow!

On older Parkers, the recommended nocks by the factory were moon nocks. Some time ago, Parker switched their nock recommendations to the "capture" nock of their own design. Current warranty requirements are for capture nocks. I can't see Parker denying warranty work on your bow since you are using moon nocks which was the requirement at the time of the purchase.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I've been using the regular moon nock that came with my first generation Tornado, using GT laser II brass insert 100 gr. slick trick my bolts weight comes in at 401 grains with in the warranty requirements. Parker since requires their capture nock so this year I installed Parker lighted capture nock. all is well, they are very bright and only added a few grains of weight I only needed a slight elevation adjustment.. they zeroed nicely for me..

If your limbs were replaced recently go with capture nocks as per Parker. I was told this by the proshop
