There are several good methods through which we can just make the accuracy of our targets with the bow better. Today I am going to present some of those styles which have been used by many archers to set the bowstring nocking point. The specially designed releases with the addition of nocking loops really have the fraction of the distance between the trigger and jaw, the good thing is that it enables you not to change your draw length of the bow.
- Downward Pressure: Just remember one thing if you are releasing aid is below the centre of the shaft then the string produces some sort of good torque and hence the downward pressure is applied to the rest. Many of the best shooters of this age like this downward pressure because according to them the accuracy of the arrow as it gets away from the bow (with some variations).
- Crimp on Nock Sets: In a typical scenario there are two brass nock sets onto the string. Not to forget the eliminator button to support the nock from the release aid. And just under the eliminator button, the release aid is attached. There are some pros and cons of using brass nock set. Many of the archers have the opinion that with the setting of drop away rest the arrow gets much downward pressure and they don’t like it at all. But don’t forget that using this nocking technique you can actually get the ost accurate flight of the arrow.
- The centered Loop: Well the most traditional way of the nocking loop is this centered bowstring. In this method, the cord is tied above and below the arrow’s neck. This is one of the most popular nocking methods amongst the archers, as this technique ensures the more amount of force to the shaft and there is also not anything like springing back when released. The speed of the arrow is not compromised as well if you use this simple method.
- Metal D Loops: These type of loops are durable (made up of metal) and they actually do the same thing as cord loop. They are heavier though and the trade-offs are the main concern with metal d loops and cord loop as well.
- The uncentered String Loop: Many of the archers out there simply tie on a nock point right below the arrow and tie the bottom knot of the loop underneath this point. By using this technique you can produce a lot of downward pressure. This is the great thing about having that type of setting because it gives you an opportunity to have some downward pressure.
Best Nocking Point For Archery
This is the carbon Express Hunting Nocking points (each package carries 5 of them). This is the best quality nocking points available which aim to reduce the wearing of your string courtesy to its rounded brass outer sleeve. And you should not worry about the slipping of this nock as the vinyl lining firmly grips the place without any slippages. This hunting nock is just more than suitable for 14 to 16 strands. It just weighs around 0.3 ounces and lasts for long period of time. With such quality, this one is recommended for you.
The Bohning Hunter String Nocks (in black) has so much to offer you. By using this Bohning hunter string nocks you can actually be sure about the accuracy of your arrow. It is purely made up of brass and it has the rolled edges which really distinguishes it to the other nocks out there. The plastic liner and the positive nocking point just make these nocks best option for the archers. The weight of this is not more than 1.6 ounces. You can use Bohning nocks in 12 to 16 strands. Archers jut love the accuracy and durability of these nocks.
Well, this is the Mossy Oak String Nocking Points (5 in each package). If you need greater accuracy then this one is what you should be looking for as the nocking point just brackets the arrow which gives consistency in return. There could be the misperception that these nock points weaken the strength but if you just use perfectly this won’t do any harm to your strength (or any other parameter). Keep one thing in mind that these nocking points are just made for traditional and compound bows (not for crossbow). Archers have positive feedback about these nocking points (recommended for you as well).
Well, it is totally up to you whichever nocking point suits you the most but one is for sure that you should use different nocking points in order to get the clearer picture of quality.
In my personal view, I like the brass nock sets because of its quick release to the string and not only this but it also reduces the string wear. Accuracy is increased as well with this type nocking but try everything and find which one suits you actually this is the best way to go.
