Default Homemade Lighted Nocks

Quackwacker posted this up a while back.

Thought I'd re-post it here at THE PLACE.

Don't know what kind of shafts ya'll shoot, I think carbon express has came out with one this year that is only 18 grains. Lighter than any I have seen. And they may fit other brands I am not sure.

i tried making some of these last week and i finally gave up. i was in a hurry which was a mistake to even try when in a hurry.
i got some new nocks and bobber lights last weekend and i am going to try it again. i guess i am a glutton for punishment.
hardest part is gluing the light end into the nock without getting the glue on the sliding part of the battery. things went downhill fast when i got to that part and i threw it all in the garbage.LOL

from what i understand, you could pull yourself out of the record books if you pop a P&Y buck with lighted arrows. those lighted nocks are cool, though! think i'll just stick with what i got.
