    Thinking about throwing a Tru-Nock on my bow...what are people opinion's on these? Are they worth losing the fps'...and do they really work at lining up the peep perfectly every time.

    stick w/a rope loop and get a good quality string like those from JCmorgan, that will not rotate........

    thats only my opinion.......

    I think you need to just work w/what you have for a while now and get your form perfected, as in repeatable......and then you can try the otherstuff.....

    :lol: :lol: Yeah, I said you haven't steered me wrong yet, but if you turn me into Bunny Jr...I don't know if i'd appreciate that either. Someday, hopefully you and I will meet at a tourny or something and I'll have the privilage of losing to you...but not by much, because you helped me get there. That'd be sweet. I agree with your Matthews statement, and Suzuki and Stihl, but I don't think Dodge, unless it's a ram. I own a 2006 Jeep Rubicon, and LOVE IT! :rockon: :rockon:

    ....and I'm a Browning Boy for Rifles...Muzzleloader preferrably

    Dodge yes, bows I own from one from most companys, But the statement of suck zuki. But what do bunnys know? Most not be much.
    On the nock thing, I use a speed nock, it fits in the D loop and does the same thing.

    Metal D Loops are bad, bad, bad. Did I mention they were BAD? Put a regular string loop on your bow.

    I agree, metal loops cause more trouble than good. Any added weight to the string will make any string oscillation after the shot much worse. Look up some videos on youtube, I will never shoot another metal d-loop! Just FYI the "5-star nock", which was on my brothers martin weighed 85 grains! That little piece of engineering is now on the wall of shame at the shop. He went from shooting 220 with aluminums and the "5-star" to 260 with carbons and a string d-loop, and its much quieter now! Metal loops are the devil!:typing: :nono:

    I agree with Chris. metal D loops are evil.
    Either use a rope loop or shoot off the string. I have been shooting off the string for a couple of years now and I don't have any issues.
