    For those of you that haven’t seen these, they look and work just like the Nocturnal’s. Nothing, but great reviews and they are much cheaper. Here are a couple of pics.

    Yep those look very good. Unfortunately they don’t make em to fit X nock shafts. Emailed them the other day and they returned an answer within a couple of hrs. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    They fit Gold Tip, Carbon Express and Easton. Just not the super small diameter arrows.

    Yeah, that’s what is stated on their website, but I bet that they would fit in the GT’s loose causes there is a .02″ difference.

    I put one in a Carbon Express and it fit real tight. Not as tight in the Gold Tips, easier to turn, but I think it will be OK.
    By the way, I weighed them and they came out to be 23.7 grains.
    Gonna shoot as soon as I get a day off.

    curious as to whether or not they will affect how your arrows are tuned to your bow.

    i pm’d the guy as well.  maybe a half dozen to my brother as a birthday gift.  his SBXT can shoot just about any arrow configuration.

    keep us posted please.

    i was really impressed by the Nocturnals initially. Worked great, looked great. AFter about a month of not using my bow i went out to shoot it and 2 of the 3 were not functioning. Sent em in, they were very understanding and sent me replacements…both of which wont “turn on” when I shoot them, but clearly have battery life because I can manually flip them on.
    Not wasting another postage fee to send them back a 2nd time.

    will look into these you’ve posted, i’m done with the Nocturnals.

    I had a problem with the Nocturnals being to small, Got a pack of three only ! fit, my dealer opened 12 packs and only 2 nocks in total fit, out of 12 packs!! They are apparently having some issues after Rage bought the company.

    After contacting TGB, the the reply basically was they had nothing to fit the X nock series.
    I asked if I could buy the battery components and switch. No reply so I took that for a NO {#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}.
    Bit the bullet and bought some ‘PINK’ Nocturnals that were at a slightly reduced price. Out of the 6, only one had a stiff switch. Working it on and off a few times fixed that problem.
    I installed all of them on my Axis Nano’s and shot them from my #25 long bow (all I can shoot right now – recovering shoulder surgery). All fit normally.
    Amazing how an overly-stiff arrow flies {#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile}. Always hit the target but the arrows did all kinds of twisting etc on the way to the target. Was easy to track flight with the lighted nocks.The arrows weren’t exactly flying at super speed (436 grain arrows launched from 25lbs is a little disappointing speed wise LOL).

    So far, they’ve worked as expected. Time will tell I guess.  Wasn’t sure about the ‘pink’ but they’re plenty bright.

    Hoping TGB starts making more options in their line-up as I would have bought from them if they had an X nock compatible unit.
