    Reason: I have cracked 8 nocks in the past 2 months… I just pop a new one in and keep going. Better than buying a new arrow. Darn DXT!

    Only swagged aluminum arrrows or tapered wood arrows require glue-on nocks. Glue must be used sparingly, otherwise it can weaken the plastic. More recently even aluminum and carbon-aluminum shafts use nock bushings so that nocks are press fit without glue.

    Most carbon arrows accept internal, pressure fitted nocks that do not require glue. Even so, I use the bushings for better precision nock alignment and enhanced nock end protection from robinhoods.

    On all my shaft’s the answer is NO…..but on those that my nephew shoots, yes (they have the point on them that you have to or they will not stay on ……. the shafts that came with his genesis) [=}=]
