Orange luminocks .300 they match my factory fletched zombie slayers. When l shot at my first big buck a month ago and accidentally shot the top of my ghosblind at dusk it was quite a show seeing my bolt bounce and ping pong thru the trees for 75 yards.......found it too!

Orange luminocks .300
x 3. I also have them in Zombie Slayers. I even practice with them in. My latest pack is the HD version, but I don't think I've shot those yet.

I replace the batteries every couple seasons or as one starts to dim. You can pick up the CR425/BR425 batteries on eBay for about $2 each if you shop around. Now that I've hunted with them for a few seasons, they're just standard equipment now.

I started with NuFletch Ignitors, and they are good, but eventually switched to the Lumenok HD Orange.

Super bright, easier to use, no gluing in of an aluminum receiver & slightly lighter.

I've been happy with the switch.

Went to you tube and watched install video. I use Firebolts so I would need to remove the threaded nock and install the Lumenock. No gluing is a big plus.

Lumenoks with my Micro.

Firenocks with the Scorpyd

A lit arrow on the forest floor after a pass-through is not only priceless but will save you time looking for the arrow! :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.
