I second Troy, having over-heated and ruined a few plastic nocks. Try one serving thickness of dental “tape,” which is wide and flat. Check the fit. Continue until it’s right. The trend these days is toward thinner strings as Fast Flight continues to increase in popularity. On my heavier bow I shoot 8 strands and 6 strands on the lighter bow. Slip-in plastic nocks for carbon arrows generally are a better fit for the thinner strings, but that won’t do you any good. Some makers of thinner strings are compensating by adding more serving. I predict nocks will soon come in various sizes for linen (thickest) B50 and FF. For now, dental tape is the ticket. IMHO
