Default Lumenoks or Firenocks??

What's your opinion, they will be used for hunting. I believe the firenocks are about $20 more. Which ones would you use and why?

My good friend Wayne make the best wrap there is, no doubt. For those who are interest in Firenock. Some exciting news. We have lighted nock now use missile and impact bomb technology to switch on and off, thus we no longer even need a magnet. We now have 5 color of field interchangeable nock. Not to mention the new battery which gives out 5,350 LUX at the tip of the 8,000 LUX LED. WARNING! Do not look directly into the LED or temporary blindness may occur! Now you know why we can claim visible up to 1.2 Miles in total darkness. It is not a joke.

I tried blaze orange & nock combo's,& solid white & neon-green nock's
I can pick up the white & neon green better becouse of the folige in the fall has orange & red in it & white dosnt fit,so i can really see it going into a brown deer.

I prefer white wraps with all white fletchings for hunting. This way I can get a good look at the blood and make sure I know where the animal was hit. but with the new rages all the deer went down within seeing distance from my stand. Not much need for tracking.

It is sooooo much fun watching them go down. If I can see them go down then I stay in the tree and keep on hunting. I've pulled two doubles the past two years.

Lumenoks or firenocks????

Or does it really matter which one??

It is a manufactured processed Archer flame. It uses the Korean Fishing Bobber light with mould in nock and do not need that glue in wood like Archer Flame does. Have 3 colors, green, red and yellow. About 350 LUX in output light from the ones I can get my hand on to. The comparison chart below should give you some good idea of ALL lighted nock in the market

Default Quality

In my opinion, firenocks are far better than Lumenocks. However, I purchased a set of three last year and after a few weeks of shooting only one still worked (i.e., the other two were unable to survive errant shots and thereby I question their quality). In either case, I almost purchased another set of the new version today, but could not stomach the $50 price given the issues I had previously.

On the back of evey Firenock v2.0 package it stated very clearly that it comes with a 120 days warranty. A few weeks will be within the 4 month time period. Why did bowden not send it in for evaluation? And for those who have firenock still in their procession, they can send it in for upgrade/refresh.

Detail below
http://www.firenock.com/Refresh%20and%20Upgrade.htm

FYI, Firenock G series starts at $19.95 for a single pack with 2 matched weight and all the way to $750.00 per 45 box. No magnet needed.

Default Lumenock? Naaaaaawwwwww

I bought 4 of them, only one worked out of the package, and it quit after 5 shots. Never again.

Tried making my own. Again, only one worked, but that could have been me.

I think that anything that depends on a mechanical switch is bound to fail prematurely. If I go this route again, it'll have to be a magnetic switch. But I use orange hens and a yellow **** for my Blazers and don't have a lot of trouble finding them.

Default I have used Lumenok

I do not like the Lumenok, I had a hard time getting them to work initially. then, I had one not work in the field, and another that has never worked while practicing. So, 1/3 ain't bad I guess.

In response to Firenock, I, probably like many others, do not keep packaging for weeks, let alone read any fine print on the back. It may be just me, but if spend the time sighting in my bow with something and then it fails it is not much consolation to send these back in to be evaluated; Especially after paying over $50 for them. A warranty such as Firenocks offers is nice for the peace of mind it gives, but if the product fails, one is still disappointed with the product. However, I must again note that these nocks are far superior to Lumenocks on their brightness, so much so that even after being burned I am tempted to purchase another set. In regards to the comments about bright wraps and fletchings, these are incomparable to Firenocks. These may aid in allowing you to see your arrow, but Firenocks are so bright you cannot help but see your arrow's flight.

Between those 2 firenocks. But IMO Tracer nocks are the way to go. Magnet turns them on and off, so you don't have to be touching and messing w/ your nocks like the others.

You mean other lighted nocks? Firenock is a brand of lighted nock make by Firenock LLC. Firenock 2008 use G switch to activate; the G force of the launch of the arrow turns it on. No need for magnet at all. The fuzzy logic subsystem and the digital time delay on the circuit guarantee the integrity of the light. In case of the 2008 and on Firenocks, there is even a ground fault built in, so when any of the sub system failed, the light will still maintain lit. FYI, Firenock before 11/2007 use magnetic system and we are the only one who can handle 16" horizontal drop (about 17G) using our patent pending wall hugging reed switch design. With any other magnetic respond system, it can only may be handle 6 " horizontral drop onto a marble counter top.

Not to mention with Firenock you can field change the battery and nock. In 2009, Firenock offer 54 colors of light in "S" style nock.

Default Firenock...

Just so I understand, does the nock light at launch or on impact?? I'm assuming launch so you can watch trajectory.

Looking to buy my first lighted nocks and don't mind laying out the coin for a quality product that will last for more them a couple of shots. Sounds like you've put a little thought into your product.

Your color chart looks good. Looks like the yellow/yellow are the britest, how do they look in person?? Any personal recomendations on color combs??

Firenock activated when the G switch sense 65 G. In case of a mathews DXT that take place bout 3/4" when arrow is released. FYI, DXT throw an arrow at about 875G during the launch cycle.

the best color is red LED with orange nock for normal human eye. For double color blind, yellow on yellow is best, or only red color blind, then green on yellow works very well.

Firenock's G switch is rated 10,000,000 cycles, the motorola fuzzy logic system, the IC time delay, and motion sensor subsystem are all rated for about 10,000 cycles. the only limited factor is what target is it being send into. Doing many 220 MPH head on collision will do a number to anything. In most cases, firenock can handle about 5,000 shots into a foam target and about 50 shot through an animal without extreme shock battery end cap. With end cap installed, the life span of the circuit is usually as long as the arrow! The titanium battery wire is also rate for about 100 battery change. I hope this helped.

You should take a look at our review and press page. Our 2009 catalog is out.

Arrow Firenocks...Hands down

I'd choose the Firenocks handsdown!
I've tried all 3, including Lumenock and Easton Tracer.
Firenock will last forever and now they have a tremendous amount of colors to choose from.
They're fast with the shipping also!
They are high $ but you get what you pay for, these firenocks will last a long time, trust me.
