Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

If you are referring to total weight of Firenock, check back 4 posts. Used a scale from Harbor Freight. Could be off a grain or two.

Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

One other positive thing about FireNocks, If you happen to bury an arrow under the grass or weeds or skip one off while stump shooting, you have a tendency to look a little harder and longer to recover your investment. Not a bad thing. To save a little money, skip the practice nocks with weights, ju...

Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

Firenocks are somewhat more expensive, and there is definitely a learning curve to installing them, but I am still using the same 6 I started with over 6 years ago. At lease 2 deer a year, plus I practice all spring, summer, and fall using them. New batteries once in a while, and that is it. Took a ...

Re: Firenocks

I use the firenocks in both my 355 and my 380 with absolutely no problems. There is a bit of a learning curve installing them, and they are not cheap, but everything I've read about the others out there, I'm not changing soon?

Quiver Size

Bought a M330 to compliment my M380, and as I was loading up my quivers I notice one is qbout 3 inches shorter.I believe it came with the 330, the camo matches. Did I get the right one? The short one looks like it should maybe go with a Micro. Just asking.

Re: Opinion on Thermacell?

Took one bear hunting, wish I had taken an extra 10. Could have sold them and paid for the hunt. Don't leave home without it.

Decocking Problem

I have a M380, new in February. Been shooting quite a bit all summer, while stretching out a couple Flemish strings. Now I'm working on decocking it and have run into some trouble. I hook my stringer up, pull up on one side, release safety, push ADF, and pull the trigger (2 stage Trigger Tech). The ...

Cocking rope

A friend gave me a Barnett Crossbows 16110 Multi-Tool Rope Cocking Device. The padded handles look nice. Allen wrenches not so much.Does anyone know if these handles and hooks would be strong enough to cock my Matrix 355 and 380?
