    Default noticed any change in arrow flight with lighted nocks?

    Was just back east, swung by a cabellas store (I could spend hours in there and blow my paycheck three times over, if wife wasnt watching) and bought some nocturnal lighted nocks. Havent had a chance to play with them yet. Anybody have any observations on how/if they affect arrow flight, since it makes arrow at bit heavier in the back? Im shooting a victory v3.
    Thanks Boyd

    I have no issues with them, my shafts still hit the sweet spot, I don't notice a bad effect at all from using them.
    I would recommend the ones that blink on and off, even easier to find buried arrows in the grass then the nocks that just stay on.....tra

    I use the Nockturnals. Inside of 30 yards I don't see a difference, but at 50 and 60 I see a little more drop. I attached a piece of arrow shaft with a point and knock to my 3D quiver to turn them off with. For the field, the tip of a broadhead or knife tip will do. Red and blue seem to be a bit brighter than the green. Plan on getting some pink one for my daughter.

    They are illegal is some western states. Crazy, I know.
    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.

    Much like you guys, I have not noticed much effect. now, like any good internet arrow sllnger. i made an I phone bow cam, so I can revel in the glory of where my arrows go. Used an old broke otter box,( if you have an otter box I phone case, you will, with time have a broke otter box too!) Having spent the past two years working on proper form,(loose grip)my bow dips down right at point of impact. and I cant see where my well balanced arrow goes!!. I hate to change things up and mess up my form by tight grip on bow to keep camera on target. Have any of you guys managed to maintain focus on point of impact without botching your form?
