TAKE THE FIRENOCK CHALLENGE 2010
Would you like to take the CHALLENGE? Well, if you have some free time and are willing to conduct a thorough evaluation on three lighted nocks then read on. Although it doesn’t matter what arrow shaft you shoot as Firenock is now available in all sizes with an inside diameter of 0.202” to 0.304”. As not many company make all the sizes like Firenock do, and none make target systems, therefore this channel will be limited to Firenock “S” style/standard 0.242”-0.246”, below is the entire Firenock “S” style fit list and a picture of Firenock "S"(if allowed). Please note that most other lighted nock company do not have Firenock’s multi-diameter fit capability. i.e. Goldtip GT nocks will not fit Carbon Express arrows, Carbon impact nocks will not fit Gold tip arrows.

This is what is involved.
1) You can not be a pro staff, shooting staff member or affiliated in any way with any company that makes a lighted nock.
2) You cannot be a participant of Firenock challenge before.
3) Only the first 10 persons who respond will be chosen for the Challenge 2010.
4) Evaluator will be required to conduct a series of tests involving 1 nock each from three companies. Evaluator must purchase a Firenock Pack. (Note: For bows that shot 300fps or use target like Spiderweb, Morrell 400FPS, Extreme Shock Battery End Caps are mandatory in order for Firenock to function correctly under those conditions) Evaluator must also purchase 2 other Lighted Nocks from 2 other companies, your choice. (Archer-Flame, Firefly, G-force Nock, NockTurnal, LazerEye, Lightning Nock, Lumenok, PoNock, Tracer, etc.). Evaluators will receive reimbursement from Firenock for the other 2 non-Firenock purchases upon finishing and sending in a detailed evaluation for this Challenge. If multipack nock is purchased, only one nock will be reimbursed for (i.e. a $24.00 pack of 3 will get back $8.00 tax not included)
5) When you notify me that you want to be part of the challenge, you need to send me the receipts of all 3 nocks; receipt date cannot be earlier than April 26, 2010
. You must contact Firenock owner Dorge Huang: email@example.com
or fax: (309) 356-5007 ASAP since only 10 will be accepted.* Please check the official Firenock challenge site http://bow.fishingcountry.com/bfcfor...splay.php?f=94
to see the number of evaluators chosen to see if the slots were full. After notify Dorge that you want to be part of the challenge, you will have up to May 5th to submitted all three receipts or you forfeit the challenge.
6. Evaluators must shoot each of the three company’s lighted nocks at least 100 times unless the nock fails prior to reaching the 100th shot. You must then note that in your report.
7) After shot #50 submerge the entire arrow with field point or broad head in regular tap water over night to test for water resistance.
8) After shot #75 submerge the nock as it is installed in an arrow in a glass of salt water (1 table spoon of table salt in a cups of water fully dissolved should provide a salty solution good enough for the test) for no less than 12 hours, then place the arrow while wet in a bow case and let it stay there at least one night before continuing with the shooting phase. Please indicate in your report the time frame from the time the nock was soaked and remained in the case before it was taken out and shot. *
90 After shot #99, find a concrete block or any hard object that you feel should break the nock when shot. Shot all 3 nocks and note the result. (i.e. you may break your arrow, so proceed with caution!) If you decided not to do this 100th shot as you do not feel like breaking any of your arrows, I understand. Thus this 100th shot test is optional for the tester.
10) Post a detail report/review on each (no less than 3 page of text for all 3 nocks, and photographs of the nocks). The report should include Brand/model name and cost for each nock, where each was purchased and how easily or difficult the assembly/installation process was for each nock. Include how each nock performed during the testing phase, after the salt water, tap water and final shooting performance stages. Also what you liked and disliked about each nock. Please be honest and truthful on your review/opinion/observation, as your test and personal information regarding each nock will be made public. As an evaluator we will publish only your name and city/state. You can add any test you think is relevant to what you as an archery would like to see or use.
11) When your evaluation is complete you will be asked to send it (word or text file) and the photos (jpgs) to Dorge Huang (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
) AND also post it on at least one general archery forum. When we receive your review Firenock will send you the products listed above and reimbursement you for the purchase (a check in the amount of the other 2 lighted nocks as I should already have your receipts).
12) The reviews (including picture(s) posted) will become property of Firenock LLC
