What bow are you shooting and what type nocks do you use? If it is the Excalibur you have listed the Ignitors work well as do Lumenoks and Firenocks.
Hmm. double post as I quoted myself. :)

I like the Lumenoks!!
Replaceable batteries. But they, (the batteries), last a long time. Comes in different colors and sizes to fit most arrows.
Can be a bit tough to turn off. :eusa-doh:
Just my humble opinion.

I’ve been using the Clean-Shot lighted nocks for 3 years now and love them. The green nocks are super bright. The best part, there’s a little tab that locks them so they don’t light during practices! Keeps the arrow weight consistent. Turn the lock on the nock and they will light up when shot. Easy on and off pulling. Best part, you can get them from walnutcreekoutdoors.com for $7.00 a 3 pack with free shipping and no sales tax! Good luck!

Ignitors from NuFletch, easy to use, great price, and the batteries can be removed for practice sessions. :thumbup:

I use Lumenoks myself. Don't think you could go wrong on most brands but definitely worth using. I feel naked if I'm not using a lighted nock.

Lumenoks. A tiny bit of trouble positioning them but so very simple. No much to go wrong and turning them off can easily be done with your thumb!

.....I have used Ignitors, Firenocks and Lumenoks....IMHO the lumenoks are fail safe....they just work...They are probobly the most costly after the Firenocks....I have comeback to the Lumenoks which I absolutely love because they just work!

.....As far as the difficulty in turning them off....you must own the Danny Miller arra pullers....they make the extinguishing part easy peasy!

At bear camp one year Big John put a Lumenok arrow thru a bear and did not turn it off. It lasted 5 days before the battery burned out.
I vote Lumenok.
