    Wow. Thanks Legacy-TX. I had no idea those little lights existed. I can see a couple of great uses for it!

    You’re welcome.
    Yeah they’re pretty cool. Weigh about as much as a Gold Tip GT nock. Perfect amount of light for fibers. And cheap.

    One thing I found that works well is the clear tubing for like fish tank air pumps. It is cheap and get the right size to go over the end of the battery and fit into the shaft. Just epoxy it to the battery and it is done no need for the dowel and it is only a few cents for a foot and can do enough for years on the nock lights.

    I have also have my own idea on building these nocks. Insted of the wooden dowl this is how i make them
    Step 1. I get the nock that is going to house the light, i Drill a small hole in the end to make the light show up brighter. Then I put a small dab of super glue around the corner of the light bulb itself. Press the light up into the nock until it turns on, leave up in the nock until the super glue is dry.
    Step 2. You then take the nock that you have the light in and sand the little lips down on it that makes it fit snug into the arrow, doesn’t take much just enough that it slides in and out easy.
    Step 3. Get a old nock i cut it in half then half again, this is the part that will hold the knock in the arrow during the opperation of the light. You cut the nock in half then glue it to the end of the light’s battery i use a 5 min appoxy.
    Step. 4 Press the whole assembly down the arrow shaft until it is all the way seated. Then to turn it off all you do is pull out on the nock slightly and it turns off.

    Also there is a Youtube video on how to make these. here is how to find that video
    First you need to see my 102 yard shot lol. Type in Homemade lumenok and its the one that says 102 yard shot. in the related videos you will see the video on how to make them.

    The Lumenok comes on when shot from your bow and stays on until you turn it off. The Lumenoks 3 volt lithium battery has a 5 year shelf life and will stay lit continuously for 40 hours. They work great for hunting and target shooting. The Lumenok aids the archer with bow tuning .You can see erratic arrow flight much better because of the light on the end of the arrow. Practicing at greater distances allows the archer to immediately associate the result of a shot with his effort. The archer’s ability to see the arrow from release to impact at distances beyond 100 yards allows unprecedented rapid feedback to the shooter, even with today’s fastest bows. :^O
