    Lighted arrow nocks

    I was wondering where I can get the LED lights. Also If anyone has made some of these I would appreciate some advice. I've watched a how to on YouTube and I kind of know how to do it...Thanks!!!

    You can order them from from horizon hobby. You get a 3 pack for $9.97. Heres a link http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...ID=RNBRC7047R3
    You can also buy cheap instructions for a much better way to make them in the classifieds section.
    The link I provided doesnt seem to be working but it gives you an idea of where to look.

    Check out Firenocks...IHMO, they the best ones you can get out on the market. Tons of different versions for target and hunting, many different nock color options, cutting edge technology, and they're reliable...shot after shot, after shot.

    www.firenock.com/

    I don't work for them...I use their product...tried lots of other nocks out there, and I'm sold on this one...not going back.

    where to buy

    If you have a sportsman warehouse closing near you they are cheap to get. I bought 5 today for $1.34 each. The ones I bought were in the fishing area and come with the bobbers (not that I need them). The sign on the door said 2 days left.

    Some questions for you who have been using these. Do you turn them on before the shot or do they turn on on impact? If you miss and they slide in the grass will they turn on(hunt from ground)? And do they weigh much? Thanks

    No you dont have to turn them on before the shot they turn on by the string pushing the nock in on both designs. If you make them my way they will stay on sliding through the grass. I cant say about the other way because I never shot one in the grass and didnt like the downfalls of the design. So I made them my way. As far as weight mine will add about 12 grs the youtube way will add more.

    It's actually pretty easy. You push the light all the way into the nock until it's as deep as you want it. Then take a needle in a pair of pliers and heat it with a lighter/blowtorch/kitchen stove/etc. until it's red hot. Then push the needle into the nock toward the plastic end of the light. The needle SHOULD go right though, and it'll fuse the end of the light to the nock.

    At least that's what I did when I made mine. No glueing, no drilling, and seems to hold up pretty good so far.

    Edit: Works really well with a small brad nail as well.

    Is there any worries about comprimising the structural integrity of the nock?

    We are asking an awful lot of these little pieces of plastic.

    If you do it the youtube way, yes. You can drill too much out and make the nock crack/break while you're making it, when you shoot it, when it stops, etc. The way I did it, there's no drilling, and the hole I made with the needle is so small that I don't think there's any loss of strength. I could be wrong, but I don't think there's enough strength loss reguardless to matter.

    That little piece of plastic is pretty strong and if you glue the battery and light in good they add strength back into the nock. Check this thread out?

    I also found them at Gander Mountain in Amarillo on Thursday for $1.99 a piece. I might see if they have any more when I go through tomorrow.
