I never had a problem with carbon express launch pads. They push in when shot to turn on and all you do is pull on them to turn it off.
Nocturnals. They are very good once they redesigned them. Rage turned them into cheap pieces of garbage for a couple years. Now that they lost customers and piles of complaints, they made them more beefy. They work well. 22 grains.
Firenock are great, they'll cost you an unborn child though.
Just bought luminocks that light up with an on off switch. What a waste of $24 for three. They light up before they release from the string and you can’t turn them off to save your life. I tried using them today, they are going in the garbage. Used to use the old style of luminocks and they were ok, these are not.
Anyone have advice what to use instead?
This year I was looking for a new nock, tried Nock Outs. The design looked odd as they sit outside the arrow. they shot well with field tips, perfectly actually. once I spun on a Fixed broadhead they would shoot 2 inches to the right. I took off the nock and put on a regular Xnock and Broadhead had the same POI as field tip.
So this year I didn't shoot lighted nocks. If you can't get them to fly perfect, it's not worth it.
Still waiting on a good lighted nock that isn't $75 for one.
I've never hear of any "blowing up" of any of the brands.
