Hence the reason it is better to move your rest instead of your nock set.

I just put on a new rest and wanted the arrow to be centered over the berger hole. I use tied nock sets above and blow along with a D loop. I was going to tie a new nock set and loop but figured I would see if I could move them first. I don't mind tying a new set but find it a pain to get the old ones off. To my surprise I untied the lower knot of the D. Then it was easy to spine the open loop up the string. I then managed to thread the tied nock points individually up the string. It was not easy but once I got a good grip it spun, just a little at first then it became easier after a few turns. Moved them both. Then I was able to retie the lower loop knot.
I did not think I was going to be able to do it, as I tried and failed in the past. but this time it worked.

d loop material
What type of string/twine/material is d loop material? I have 3 kids and 2 adults who shoot in my crew and I want to replace some frayed d loops. I went to buy some at my local proshop today and they want $10 for two lengths that are 4 1/8" long. Given they have melted the ends for me, but my goodness there can't be 5 cents worth of string there. Can I get this somewhere else?

I already ran a few more searches in general discussion and wound up ordering enough for about 30 dloops from shootnow for the same price I would have paid at the local proshop for enough material to make 2 dloops.
Thanks for the replies.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. It's great to be able to SEE the installation in pictures. I can't wait to try this on my own bow. Thanks again.

I buy my D loop material in volume (100 ft length). I dont cut my d loops to length and then install. What I do is I have a length that I will be able to make lots of d loops with . I tie the first knot underneath and then having all that extra length I can grab hold of and pull that first knot really tight. then I run the second knot and pull it to the length I want my d loop to be and pull on all the extra length and it pulls the second knot really tight also. Then I cut the extra off leaving enough extra to burn the end on the second knot. I use a soldering gun to melt the second knot on the d loop. When using a soldering gun to make the bulb on the d loop material make sure you are using a clean tip without any solder on it. Found out the hard way that a previously used tip with solder on it will actually melt right into the bulb of d loop material you are trying to form.

"On my hunting bows, I use a serving nockset on top only and a eliminator cushion button under or a small electrical grommet"
Can you supply a picture of this setup? Thx!
