Post by: S2 Bowstrings on September 01, 2011, 01:48:00 AM
Here's another how to video for the gang.  Please keep in mind that this nock tying style may not be for everyone.  I just wanted to share for those who are interested due to requests that I've gotten.
Thank you!

I have been struggling with tied-on knocks for a while. Can't wait to use your method. Thanks!

Thanks Ryan, excellent again, also used some of your tips from the silencer tie on yesterday and much better, no more string cuts in the crease of my fingers and using a clamp over the catwisker material sure makes it much easier to tie them on.  Don't know why I never thought about tying loops on both ends of the serving material before, duh!  Also I use #4 nylon serving instead of string material as it has a course braid and some stretch to it and you can really get it tight and holds very well.  Good job!
Another suggestion for string nock material, use 200# dacron bowfishing line or downrigger line and tie on using the same type of knot that most people tie strings loops on with and burn the ends and works very well and super easy and you can thread it up and down the serving to adjust as well.

Thanks guys and you're welcome!  Please remember, this knot can be tricky.  It's almost like bare shaft tuning, you either love it or you hate it. LOL!
Things to keep in mind.  The center serving must be tight and secure.  Keep in mind the direction of the center serving in relation to the string twists.

Great idea Mark!  I'll try that knot tonight.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions, I'll be more than glad to help or give suggestions.

Ryan

Ryan,
  I really like your demostration and just this year I've been toying around with tie on nocks and been hunting with bow since 1977...Never realized the benefit of a tie on till recently..I have noticed the biggest difference with two tie on nocks and your demo is very easy to learn and I want to thank you for a super great video...You deserve a pat on the back for a job well done Ryan..  :clapper:

This looks like the best nock knot I've seen yet.  Great timing as I'm getting a few strings in the mail next week.  Thanks.

Thanks for all the kind words.  Really appreciate it!

Please remember, this knot may take some practice, so try it before putting them on a new string.

Tied this knock point on my bow yesterday, I've only shot it a day but so far it is my favorite by a long shot. I tightened mine a little too much and it is hard to adjust, it will move, but not easily at all, that is my fault not the knot's. I fine tuned yesterday and my bow is shooting BBs with field tips and broadheads. With a little more testing if this knot stays put, which it seems to be, I won't use anything else.  Thanks, Chris

WOW!  Cool stuff Chris.  
Yeah this knot can be really tricky at first and I was a little hesitant to post it, but guys been asking me about it.  I'm stoked that it's working.  Like I mentioned before, you'll either love or hate this knot.   :D

Have a great weekend!

Ryan , I've been playing with the double nocks and will be heading to the shop to install a couple adjustable string nocks. Good job on the video. Maxx

I just had to replace the string nocks on my Griz. I tried your method. All I kept hearing was "over the rainbow, through the rainbow" and it worked like a charm!!

Thanks Ryan.

I need to get some .030 braided serving line just for this.

   :thumbsup:

Sounds like I'm in the market for some .030 braided material too, Bud - LOL. As you may have noticed, I use the double tied on string nocks (and have for years). I went away from double for awhile but came back to it about a year ago. Since i have been tying my own (and other's) on for some time, I stayed away from this video for awhile - couldn't stand the curiousity though - LOL. GREAT VIDEO, GREAT HOW-TO, Ryan, and it really looks like a much better and more uniform knot than the string of overhand knots (and super glue) I've used for years. Sometimes they don't want to break loose for adjusting, and I have to redo. I definitely am going to be practicing this and see if this ol' dog can learn (another) new trick. Great job, Ryan, Mahalo.

Howdy Ryan,

Thanks for the tutorial video.  I see from your profile that you're a teacher.  That really comes through in the video.  Nice work.  I'm gonna try your cat whisker method next.  Hey, what type of goat is that in your profile?  Looks pretty wild.
