I've seen rope loops installed with one brass nockset under the arrow,with one brass nockset above and below arrow,and with nothing but the rope loop.Also with tied on nocksets same different configurations.
What is the reason for the nocksets,if any?
Thanks.

the reason for the nock set above the loop is to prevent the loop from slideing up. You should never put a string nock inside the loop that will cause nock pinching. i just tie them on a leave them' viper makes a nice tool to tighten loops or you can use needle nose pliers.

Nocksets are dependant upon the loop setup. Most always the top nockset or loop knot is the nocking point - bad part of this, if you change loops you lose your nocking point. The bottom nockset is most always set spaced from the arrow nock. One, this space helps eliminate nock pinch and allows some pressure exerted on the arrow to keep it on the rest. The space should be tested - too little and drawing may allow the arrow to ride up off the rest - best to test with tip removed.

Of nockset above arrow nock and loop below, the loop should be spaced below the arrow nock.

One of the down things of just using a loop, the knots aren't even on the arrow nock and may effect the arrow coming off the string.

Hope this helps.

Check John Dudley site - he had a article on loops sets.
