Hi

I use a cascade release and two nocks points above the nock ( see the picture), the problem is: the nocks are arising after one month that put in the right place, It was happing some times.
I already tried to use serving nocks, made another serving and I bought better pliers to put the nocks but nothing stop the nocks.
I don't want to use d-loops with the cascade release because I already tried it and I didn't like.

Somebody could give me a suggestion to stop the nocks?

Thank you

your serving could be moving or loose nocks like joe said get the red nocks they work the best, i have a feeling it might be your serving

I have very same kind of problem. Serving will separate if I ever find a way to stop nock moving.

Sorry to say but d - loop is only sure cure I have found.

I also locked serving with wood resin. Simpli spread it before you begin to serve.

I also tried brass nock and make extra serving over it to stop moving.

but....

When I find a way to stop nocks then serving will begin to wear hyperspeed. After 200 - 300 shots serving is broken. (Material-Brownell Diamondback)

Serve it really tight and don't skimp on how much you put on the bowstring above where you will be placing the nock sets. I've served some center servings up to within 1/2" to 1" of the peep sight.

In my case very tight serving just wears broken.

I would like to know why someone does not have anykind of such problems and sometimes some person has just that problem very severe? Is there something doing with drawlength?

Kari, serving will go bad for a couple reasons the big one is because it wasen't put on tight enough, constant shooting wears it out, moving the nock up and down on the string if the nock is not loose enough, the wrong size serving, yes string loop's help out alot the only problem i have with loop's is that they increase my draw length .

Look at the bend in your nock in the first pic...you are putting a heavy upward load on the nock points...have you tried one of the rubber cushions between your rope and nock. In the old days of using mono serving using a cushion was the only I could keep the serving from slipping.

Do like Randy Ulmer does and just double serve it with small diameter stuff......Especially since your using those crappy brass nocks....As a string builder you should go back to using a served nock point...Brass nocks are terrible on your strings!:D

Thanks for You concern.

But I can sure tell you that it is sure VERY tight and still that slipping occur. I even made my serving with specialists and still those problems occurs. One interesting thing I noticed. My serving is heavily wearing where release rope is and almost inch and a half below that point. But how can just releaserope hurt serving so much or make it separate? Yes - I have heavy releaserope wear and I changed that rope more wear resistent but that wear goes more to serving!

Nothing this kind occurs when I changed to d-loop! Some odd twist or something?

I think that there are sure some logical explanation why this hapens but which is it?

Well - forget to tell on thing more. That serving slipping occurs when it is hot. Grease are more slippery?

I admit that brass nock points are terrible. Just love nockpoints that is made by simply knotting serving and some glue to secure.

I've heard you can use serving as a nock set...
