I added lighted nocks to my 22" bee's. It moved my poi up 2" at 30yrds. Is this good or bad?
I Added Lumenok's to my bolts on an Excalibur Micro. It changed my impact area a lot. Though the Micro bolts are much shorter than yours. I haven't yet decided for sure to keep the Lumenok's on the bolts. What is most important is that your grouping is good with them.

It’s been my experience that when adding lighted nocks, it’s not uncommon for the POI to be higher despite lighted nocks being heavier.
It’s not a big deal if you’re getting consistent arrow flight and accuracy.

Thanks everybody. I got my bee's from wyvern creations. Hey are dead on. Lighted nock changed the focus a little so I think that's why it shoet a little higher. Adjusted scope and dead on. Come on deer season.

Linwood...welcome to the boards. Have you checked the FOC (front of center) percentage difference between the two nocks. If you have a light insert and broadhead, a heavy nock may move the center of moment back toward the center of mass and increase the tendency of the arrow to "porpoise". At a fixed target this is corrected at sight-in. Howsomeever, a deer ain't fixed. At 28 yards the arrow may be tilted up and at 32 yards it may be tilted down. Many folk on here use heavy (100+ grains) inserts and broadheads (150+/- grains) with 35 grain lighted nocks. My hunt ready arrow total mass is 570 grains with a FOC of 22-25%. You might find other opinions and more info by searching for Front of Center. Good luck.
