      On the main page there’s an article ‘Brighten up the nock’. Gave it a try and I gotta say that it works well with the hot pink florescent  nocks that I use. This will be part of my arrow making routine from now on.

      If I might add, though; Making it even better. Go to the big box store and find the white Velcro.  Take the fuzzy side and cut it into strips about 3/16″ wide .  Wrap this around the shaft right behind the fletching and trim to length. Now, depending on your arrow shaft diameter you have a white circle 1/2″ to 3/4″ wide with a bright florescent nock in the middle.  Shows up really well and doesn’t seem to affect arrow flight.

      The only down-side that I can see is evil shooting buddies not being able to resist shooting at your nocks.

      I never in my life intentionally shot at another persons nock.  Those that were hit it was purely accidentally.

      It sure is hard to convince someone though that you are truly sorry after a self congratulatory “YEAH” and a silly grin all over your face.

      Heck, the bunch of knuckle draggers that I used to shoot with at Valley West had a rule that if somebody’s arrow ended up laying in front of the target everybody got one free shot at it.                                                                                                                          Amazing how often somebody who would be happy to score a 3 for 10 on a forty yard field target can bust somebody’s arrow at the same distance. More concentration paired with evil intentions, I guess.

      I tried it with black nocks and it didn’t work…LOL… Don’t hit me!!!!!  LOL

      It really does work well with translucent nocks.

      Did you pre-charge the black nocks with a U.V. Black Light ????? ……….. BwaaaaHaaaaHaaaa !!!!!

      Been playing with the taper white base coat/ fluorescence nock/ white Velcro wrap for my Roving – Rabbit – Romps  and am convinced that it’s definitely an advantage.
