Lighted Nocks; Which Is Right For You?on Aug 27, 2012
Each and every lighted nock I tested is more than capable of getting the job done in the field. Seeing where your arrow impacts the animal you’re shooting at is crucial to knowing how and when to take up the recovery. Nothing can help you with that decision quite like a lighted arrow nock.
I will say that the final scores of each nock can certainly be a bit misleading. Although the Firenock and Tracer scored the same, I will say the Firenock is far and away a superior product in just about every aspect. And although the Carbon Express Laser Eye scored the highest overall, it was one fo the dimmest lights. Below you can see a side by side comparison of all 5 of the lighted nocks that were tested.
From left to right: 1. Laser Eye, 2. Nockturnal, 3. Lumenok, 4. Firenock, 5. Tracer
When it comes to deciding which nock will work best for your application, you should evaluate your personal needs before making a decision. Your overall budget, amount of time to setup/tweak your nocks and importance of brightness should all be factored into your buying decision.
I still haven’t quite made up my mind which I’ll be shooting this fall, but you can bet the next time you see me loose an arrow on Bowhunt or Die you’ll be able to track the flight of my arrow thanks to one of these lighted nocks.
