Parker Capture nocks?

What can we safely use when the stock dries up?I was in Cabelas yesterday and they still have a full rack of new Parkers that have never been even knocked down on price.They said Parker never notified them on what to do and nobody is buyin em either.The salesman said it is unsafe to use half moon nocks which I acquired about.I,m surprised Parker didn,t have them reduce the price when their internet reduction sale was goin on.

I have always thought that when makers tell you you can only use their nocks, strings, etc, or void the warranty it was bull! There are bolts out there with nocks that work with xbows having more energy so why wouldn't they work? A lot of the time the aftermarket parts are higher quality than the factory parts!

The warranty is up so you can use whatever you want, I have used half moon nocks in my cyclone before with no problem, just be sure they are up against the string.

My Scorpyd also requires capture nocks. I use firenocks.

You should be fine with moon nocks in a Parker. If you feel more comfortable with a nock that has a deeper throat then a moon nock, looks at TenPoints new Alpha nock. They should work great in Parkers.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

In the owner’s guide it said only use half moon nocks then later switched to use only capture nocks. When cracks started the warranty ended. Bought new limbs and then found out that had I waited I could have bought an entire front end for less. Seems this is an ongoing lesson of buyer beware and don’t always believe what is in writing. Yes the lifetime warranty did get me.
Still a great bow and was once a pretty good company. I bought it from Arrowhead and now I think that I know why he stopped selling them.
It still shoots so ... oh well.

Kind of makes you wonder if Parker will shut down for awhile then open back up under same name or another name just to get out of the life time warranties, I went thru that with loggy bayou tree stands.
