I've used those with no issues
Sorry about your eye...
Sorry about your eye...
Again I'm not saying it can't happen but I personally have never heard of it in the archery circles I have been in over the last 40+ years. I'd still not lose sleep over it personally.Years back someone posted of having a eye injury from a brass nock coming off and factory strings. His story sucked. Factory strings have shrink tubing covering the nocks. Shrink wrap is dang tough.
Well, the next came string makers not installing brass nocks. And then stupid heavy rubber thingies came into being. I ain't seen one yet that hasn't slipped.
Got a set of strings without speed buttons. No problem. Measured my old strings for the brass nocks. Installed the nocks and used the same rubber tubing used for aligning peeps. Yep, slipped it on so to cover the brass nocks....No heat needed like shrink wrap...........
So you’ve been around forever, and it’s never happened to you so it’s nothing for the rest of us to worry about? Thanks I feel much better now with your logic. Post count does not equal wisdom on Archerytalk
The logic is; If a brass nock comes off the string it wasn't installed properly.So you’ve been around forever, and it’s never happened to you so it’s nothing for the rest of us to worry about? Thanks I feel much better now with your logic. Post count does not equal wisdom on Archerytalk
I always bought only glasses with lenses that were projectile resistant. Any OSHA approved prescription safety glasses should be protection enough.But might be worse with something breakable around your eyes with things moving at the speed and power they do. Worth a discussion.
Believe it or not some people still use brass nocks and a cushion button.Point taken. But no one ever installs stuff on a bow the wrong way…right? Won’t be as bad with a tied on nock point would it? Your argument is void.
Bet you use those Kevlar shooting gloves in case you bust a arrow at the shot....I don’t see many other guys doing this but I always shoot with sunglasses on, and if it’s dark, glasses. There are enough bad things that can happen that some level of eye protection is a good idea
Go back and read post #14. The Poster noted Traditional bows. Brass nocks have been used on traditional (stick/recurve) bows since brass nocks were invented.Denigrating someone's choice to use the simplest of safety measures is not all that brilliant.
