I bought some Easton Tracer Nocks last year and never got to use them so now after reading just how many have not worked out of the package for some I am wondering is there a way to test them while in the package or does it have to be shot with the magnet attached to the riser. Does it need to have an impact. When I wave a magnet other than the one that comes with them they all flash on bright then off. So it seems that the magnet starts it or turns it on and the impact keeps it on is that the way it works?
If I can get out this fall to bow hunt I am just trying to use what I have. How close does the magnet need to be in proximity to the arrow to get it to work measurement wise, where is best place to mount the magnet on your bow riser? Directly across from the path of the arrow nock. Is close better? How far away and it will still work anyone have this information. I have yet to use them but just would like them to work in case I do need one to track a deer. Also how do you turn them off and can they be reused or are they a one time deal?
Thanks in advance to anyone with information on how they work.
