Lumenoks for Carbon Express Maxima Blue Streak bol

I've been looking for Lumenoks for my bolts but I can't figure out what size fits. I looked on their site and everything. Do none of them work? I'm looking to get some cause my Carbon Express lighted nocks have been giving me nothing but problems and don't work.

Re: Lumenoks for Carbon Express Maxima Blue Streak bol

They look nice but there's no way I'm paying $60 for lighted nocks. I'll go without....lol. It [censored] cause my bolts came with 2 lighted nocks which I put in and they worked great. I took them out to go to a 3d shoot cause I didn't wanna risk loosing them. I put them back in and they will work if I push them on by hand but if I shoot them they won't light up. Its like they are too loose in the shaft to activate them. [censored].

I've had no problems with my blue streaks, give carbon xpress a call and tell them your troubles, I had a regular nock fly out and they sent me a new one

Cabela's sold me Lumenoks for my Gold Tip Lasers and the same thing happened.

I talked to them a little bit ago and they said it sounds like its not gripping in the shaft. They instructed that I take a sharp knife and cut grooves in the nock to keep it tight so it would work. Well, it came outta my xbow lit and great till it hit the target and the moon part of the nock flew off. Apparently in the instructions it states that they are meant to be permenant. Well, when you buy the 5 pack it doesn't come with those instructions.

Lumenoks won't work because there isn't enough carbon in the Carbon Express shafts to complete the electrical circut. They are mostly fiberglass.

If the nock isn't gripping the shaft, just use a strip of plastic wrap on each side of the nock. It will make the fit much tighter.

If you go to http://www.lumenok.net/howto.htm You can find good instructions on the proper way to fit the nock to the shafts. The one titled "Too Loose" is the most common error when fitting crossbow nocks. Squaring the shaft is next in line. The shaft must be square for them to function properly.
