I've had the same problem.

I now tie less than an 1/8th inch nock serving under the nock and above the bottom loop. this will put slight down pressure on the arrow that will keep it on the blade. I sometimes put a small (couple wraps) tied nock serving above the nock and below the top loop.

Tie a nock on the top and bottom of your nock and leave a gap of 1/32" or so. Then tie your loop on the outside of these two nock sets.

I tie a nok-set under the nock of the arrow and then use the top knot of the loop to achieve the nok-set above the arrow - this works fine and never causes me to have any nock pinch issues.

Nock pinch

+1 with 3Children. Tie some serving nocks above and below nock, leave 1/32 to 1/16" gap. Tie loop above and below these serving nocks, always when nocking an arrow push nock up against top serving nock for consistancy.
