What's everyone's little secret to getting their nocks to be able to turn? Most of mine are REALLY tight. I pulled one nock out and tried some dip tube lube. It worked well, but kind of messy. Thanks.

Just use a little bowstring wax on your nock before inserting into the swage end, works great!! And the nocks will be just as tight...;)

Fogg Dogg.

I use the Beiter Hunters and they're about perfect. Almost turn too easy in carbons. Work well in the new cobalts.

The wax trick really works too if using the Eastons.

Thanks guys. Does the wax stay plyable, or does it set up and act like concrete after time? Thanks again.

This little trick works great!!! Super nocks, g nocks or whatever, it helps to install them without worries of bending, and you can hand adjust rotation. I have some shafts/nocks that are two years old with this treatment and the wax is still the same as new!

'Mama,

I tried "horsing" it, but just snapped the shaft in half. ;) :D

If you are a slot car racer, you would use the best synthetic ball bearing oil to get those nocks in. But now that you mention it, string wax makes more sense............Dave;)
