Nocks falling out
Have goldtip arrows. XT hunters or something. White nocks. If you un-nock a arrow without shooting the nock stays on the string and to date ive lost 2. Hate to superglue them in. Anyone else have this problem? What do you do?

Take a plastic grocery bag, put it over the end of the shaft, push the nock thru it, cut off the excess and the nocks should be tight. Get your center serving checked as it is probably too big. I never had a GT nock come off the way you described unless the center serving was TOO big.

Center serving seams to be good. These nocks come off easy.

I take Bohning fletch-tite glue and smear a dab all the way around the nock. I let it dry before putting it back in the shaft. That little film of glue is usually enough to make the nocks tight!
Become a string maker but don't waste your time wrapping your servings by hand check out the NWSpinner!

I put appliance epoxy paint around the nock. Dries in 10 minutes.

Plumber's teflon tape works well too.
Sometimes three shallow cuts in the part of the nock that goes into the bushing or shaft will work.

Goldtip hunters are a couple of thousands of an inch larger inside diameter than some of the other makers carbon arrows, for instance Easton. Are you using Goldtip nocks?

This, but also look at the back end of those arrows for cracks, could be why they are coming off. You cannot be too careful.

They are the original GT nocks. I have unshot and shot ones and they all are the same. They dont just fall off. I can nock it and pull it off 10 times and it will come off once and awile. They do come off way easier than the 2 different types of easton arrows I have. Those I can barely remove. Just takes moderate pressure on the GTs. I will try some of the suggestions. Wouldnt be as annoying if I had doz extra nocks. The store I bought them from doesnt cary just the nock.

YES this dont glue em in, plastic bag works great.... holds em in tight and you can take out and rotate as nessecary

I never use GT nocks....don't like them. regular Easton Super Nocks fit just fine. as mentioned, check carefully for cracks in the ends of your shafts...if they're cracked don't shoot them! allot of guys try to glue the nocks in the shaft, if the shaft is cracked. that crack allows the nock to sit off center in the shaft and causes erratic grouping and possibly a near dryfire or injury, if the shaft fails when the shot breaks.
