Flat or Moon?

I assume its s matter of personal choice but Im looking at Nufletch lighted nocks n see mostly moon style. I originally installed the flat nocks on my zombies for ease of alignment. Did not glue them.
Do you glue lighted nocks in?

Nufletch Lighted Nocks anyone???

Need some input from those who use these, some real world experience not info or stats posted by manufacturer. Want lighted nocks but will not use Luminocks nor Nocturnals. Firenocks are way to pricey imo so Im down to these that one forum member suggested.
Thanks

Re: Crossbows and shooting sticks?

I hunt mainly from stands but I have a ways to n from the stand and I thought I might benefit from having a "walking" stick I can shoot from since I really can't use a tree to brace on. Thats why I was thinking the mono stick. I got time to think on it. I have a stoney point tripod I used when I was...

Crossbows and shooting sticks?

Do you folks use a shooting stick while hunting? It occurred to me that a crossbow doesnt brace well up against a tree or other solid rest while walking threw the woods when cocked for obvious reasons. Something I like to try n do when available with a shouldered weapon. Im looking at a primos mono ...

Re: Bow Noise/Decibel meter

I agree a crossbow will never be totally silenced but the efforts to do so can help extend the life of the bow. Vibration is mechanical and can cause damage ir at min loosening of components.
I feel its worth it.

Re: Zombie paint wore off first shot?

Not to difficult to remove from 3D hard foam but some foam melt was left on the shafts. Ive seen this before on compound arrows too. Ive seen shaft graphics wear as well. Just over time.
Mine will be "naked" soon. Lol

How do you calculate FOC on bolts?

Just had my zombies cut to 16" and put 110g brass inserts. 125g tips and future lighted nocks but just flat nocks currently. How are you folks calculating FOC on these?
Thanks.

Zombie paint wore off first shot?

I really didnt expect to see the graphics on my Zombie Slayers bolts to wear off after one shot into my 3D deer target. I assume with high speed comes higher friction but really? Shooting into my bag type targets they seemed fine. Those that have removed the graphics off their zombies, what did you ...

Finally shot the Micro 335 today. Sweet!

Just got back from Maine hunting (no luck) and had a chance to finally get my zombies cut down n 110g inserts glued in. Put the new 8pt custom flemish on and set brace. First shot ever since I bought the xbow was at 20 at a little foam ear plug stuck in my 3D target and I was just touching it! Sweet...
