home made lighted nocks
Anybody made these off the you-tube video? Just would like some input. It looks soo much better than the 10-20 bucks each for lumenocks or firenocks.

Why do you need lighted nocks ?
It defintely affects your FOC and arrow spine and I'm not sure what the real benefit is.
Why sweat it ?

I made a couple and they seem kind of tricky to make. And they always seemed to turn off upon impact of the target. Never used them for hunting, bought some tracer nocks..

Skip it, By the time you add labor and the frustration of gluing yourself together or to somthing else just go to the lumenoc websight and pruchase a three pack for 25 dollars. Alot cheaper than going to the ER to get unglued.GO TEAM 12

I made them with little fuss and at only 4 bucks for Thrill bobber lights no big deal, now I dont hunt with them I use them in the back yard to thrill the kids and they do look cool when the sun is going down.Mathews Ovation 60 lbs 29 Dl- Ranger custom Strings

As for throwing the F.O.C. off I went with 125gr broadheads instead of 100gr and my arrows fly great and paper tune with a bullet hole.
I would recommend to make one and try it. I only have about $3.00 each in mine. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
