You can enter the specifics of your bow in it. I was wondering if it works with a cross bow? I hope so.

Is the weight of a ravin arrow 400 grains plus a 100 grain broadhead? or 400 grains with the broad head?

What is the weight of a lighted ravin bolt?

The lighted and unlighted weigh the same 300 grains. +or - The lighted uses a aluminum insert instead of brass.

I don't have the Leupold. But have a little info on the arrows,.

The factory arrow with factory non lighted nock is about 300gr. And then you add your own head. I do not have the factory lighted arrow. But, put my own together.

I bought some of the Ravin lighted nocks to add to my non lighted arrows. The weigh of the lighted nocks were 24.7-25.2 grain for 6 of them. Three in each package were 24.7-24.9 in one package. And 25.0-25.2 in the other package.

I do not have the factory lighted arrows. But my arrows with lighted nocks (3 selected from a doz Pro-arrows based on spine from a Ram Products Spine Tester) weigh 439.8, 440.6, and 440.2 grains with the lighted nock and a 125 grain Saunders field tip.

Hope this info helps you.

Edit: My apologies HunterB. I was typing while you were posting. And didn't see your post till after I posted.

So the lighted ones might be 15 grains heavier than un lighted?

Ravin lighted arrows (lighted from factory) weight 400gr +- 2gr
Ravin .003 and .001 standard knock 400gr

FYI: the lighted knock bolts are lighter in the front and heavier in the rear. They will not fly like the unlighted bolts. You may not notice out to 30yrds. Front of center is important in all arrows and bolts for accuracy and flight stabilization.

I resight at 80yrds with all lighted bolts the week prior to deer season. (In a building with zero wind) i use a 150gr rage trypan to give great flight. (I don't shoot deer past 60 but an 80yrd sight in goves me a better look at bolt flight and really shrinks the closer groups.

Thanks XFrog. Good information. Which bow are you using the 150's on? I am so far using the lighted bolts with 100 grain broad heads. I want to take shots greater than 40 yards but on deer I try to stay 30 yards or under and they do fly well at the shorter distances. I have 150's around I will have to try them at greater distances and compare.

That is correct. The lighted nocks only weigh about 15 or so grains more than the non-lighted ones. I don't have any loose non-lighted nocks to weigh. But think they weigh about 10-11 grains based on weighing the arrows before removing the factory nocks, and weighing arrows again after inserting the lighted ones. The little keeper on the non-lighted nocks broke off when trying to remove the factory ones. But I got everything out of the shaft before inserting the lighted nocks. That was a little chore. As I stated in the other post above, I weighed the lighted nocks by them selves individually to get the numbers in the above post.

Edit: And I'm shooting a R29X. My aproximate arrow weight to start with will be 440grs total with a 125gr head. I'm going to try a 150 grain head a little later to see how she do.
