I'm looking into getting some of the lighted knocks for my bolts. Any suggestions on which are better and how do you know which ones will fit my bolts??

Lume-noks,,, I got those tracers... Crap you can't even see those things from 20 yards away... While the lume-noks you can see WAY OFF!!! When my dad shot his buck with the crossbow i was about 50 yards away.. seen the bolt leave the crossbow, hit the deer and then dissapear, then re-appear after it made a pass thou shot... I then put the bolt stright up, and pushed it into the ground about 2 inches and follow the blood trail.... And even 75 yards latter you could clearly see the massive red- glare coming from the lume-nok... What kind of bolts are you using?

i use easton tracer nocks and they work great! after the pass through shot the nock goes into a blinking mode much easier to find .... and saves your batteries. i first bought lume-nocks out of 6 only 2 worked with my gold tips.. sent them back got 4 more only 1 worked! i shoot video all the time, turkey,deer,no difference in brightness! !!! the best thing is there is no loose nock on your bolt the magnet switch only turns on when leaving the bow, passing the magnet.ive shot 4deer with the same bolt, nock,broadhead!!!! still killling with that bolt!

I used Easton Tracer nocks this year and was not impressed at all. Bought a set back in August tried it out, worked fine. Looked really cool right at dark thumping the 3D target. Shot a buck right at sunrise on Nov 12. It never activated. Back home I played around with it....it would turn on, barely. Looks like blood seeped into the unit. As far as I am concerned it is not durable or reliable.

The Lumenoks are great. You need to square the end of your shaft or they won't work. If your shaft is square and they light up they are a cinch to find.
Measure the inside diameter of your shafts to get an exact fit or call Lumenok.
Or you can just give us a call and we'll fix you up. Click the link below or the banner at the top of this page.

Thanks !! I got on the lumenok site and found that they list my bolts and the size of nock that will fit them. I ordered a 3 pack for myself for Christmas...lol
Now, how do you get the old nock out of the carbon shaft?? I've done this with aluminum shafts but not carbon.....???

I had a hard time getting mine out.. I had to use pliers and wiggle them out.... also, you might have to sand some of the lumenok off (roundness), so that it slides that extra 1/16 of an inch to turn on
