Tied-on string nock
« on: May 15, 2011, 09:17:00 PM »
I thought I would post a video of how I tie on a string nock.  I suppose it's no better or worse than anyone else's tied on string nock, but I like it because it lies flat and looks finished.

Would someone please make up my mind for me?

I like it.  I tried a sting nock but it didn't work too well.  I think I will try one like that.  Thanks

Reminds me of tying on fishing rod guides.

That was a great video, I would like to see one of the mods place it on the how to forums.

McDave,

Fantastic Video, I was wondering what material you use for the tie on nock?  I was wondering if dental floss would work in this application.

I've been using tie-ons for a long time but that is the easiest way I've seen to do this! I always say "if not broke don't fix it" but definitly will change the way I tie them on. Thanks McDave.

Great job Dave!

Thanks for sharing that.

My 1st thoughts were, that would be a good way to serve up a nocking point for those who would like to try shooting without a glove or tab.

I know I am tempted.  Why!  Just because I can....lol

Thanks agin!

God bless,Mudd
