Griz, there is one crossbow on the market that absolutely requires moon nocks. Others may follow I dont think nocks will break anyone's bank. I continue to shoot flats on my current crossbows and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
I have not decided what the price will be per dozen if I go forward with it.
I can make them but I'd rather an existing archery manufacturer do it. If I can't get them to do it I might make some to sale but right now I have too much going on to tackle that. It's currently taking me a good 10 minutes per nock. I'll let you know how it goes.
Tell you what Mr. Ed, I could probably design a REAL crossbow that is as good or better than anything that's come out of England...................or will come out of England in the future because it's already being done by Bowtech, Ten Point, Excaliber, Swissbow and now Horton Recon. You can do better than that...............ridiculing other manufacturers' product before you have ANYTHING borders on insanity I think. I'll give credit for 2 things though, you are extremely hard headed and good for a laugh from time to time. Keep up the good work I'm sure Phil is proud of you
Here's a photo of typical 40 yard shots, sitting with my elbow on my thigh for a rest, using my Moon Mini moon nocks shot out of a high end real crossbow The one on the left is a field point and the one 1" to the right is a fixed 3 blade. Can do it all day long
Moon : Have I ever told you that .. I like your nocks... smoothe and round and .... so perfectly formed ... ten minutes per nock is a small price to pay, and I am sure they could be mass produced at least the basic item then some softening of the edges by hand protecting the to be inserted portion ... I like good stuff whether it is absulytely necessary or not.... nice personal touch to your arrows... I approve for sure..
seriously that looks like a nice product... if they do not get lost the investment is a one time thing... I am interested in making some my self.. does the material have to be a certain hardness or not ? if it is a secret then I understand... I would jsut like to see if I could make some. or if I could soften the edges of the stock plastic nocks...I do not think they should be sharp either..
My question is, are the holes in the back threaded so that you could screw in the Excalibur tool for pulling out arrows? If they aren't, it wouldn't take much to offer that when you start to mass produce them. Crossbow Nation wants the first 1,000.
