I purchased the Alpha lighted nocks for my Horton Vortec. They work great and are an improved design over the omni.

Not at this time.
Worst mistake tenpoint could make. The 2 piece is absolute junk. Way too many failures on my titan m1. If I hit anything hard, a passthrough on a deer, turkey, and coyote, the tabs are broken off on the receiver. I don't have the money to spend on more arrows, but can't get the receivers out. Already splintered one shaft trying to remove them. A simple one piece, press fit would cure it

More parts on a bow the more money they charge.. Ala cart. Why not... The more separate pieces they can charge you for... All endless bullshit marketing scam tactics

I never trusted the Omni nocks. I had Hortons for many years and every now and then the sting would run over the arrow until they came out with the half moon nocks. Back when they were flat nocks the bows weren’t very powerful so I never had an issue. After the half moon nocks it never happened.
A few years back I got a TenPoint and started using Omni nocks because that’s what was needed. One day shooting it the string ran over the arrow the vanes and top of the arrow was damaged, the bottom and cock vane was untouched so I know the arrow was loaded right.
I will be looking at the new nocks but all of my hunting arrows have the Omni lighted nocks. I see they look like a beveled Horton’s nock.

I must be one lucky sucker. I’ve shot Omni nocks since the day they came out and never once had a problem with them. They shot dead on accurate for me and performed just great.
If the Tenpoint bows would have not went so compact and extremely narrow, I would still be shooting them.
The Alpha nocks are shooting just as good with the Nitro XRT.
As far as the 2 piece nock system, I have had some issues with the nock coming off the arrow a couple times. Also, you have to be very careful when you put the nock on to make sure it’s indexed correctly. Not a big fan of that design.
I would like to see some changes to the 2 piece nock system.

That doesn’t sound so promising as far as the Alpha nocks, I think I’ll wait until they develop the product.

I switched from Omni nocks to the Alpha nocks. Never had any issues with the Omni nocks, but I like the idea of being able to see into the side of the trigger box and visual see that the fingers of the Alpha nock are cradling the string. It was much harder to see when the Omni nock was back against the string.

However, I am not overly impressed with the durability of the fingers of the nock receiver that is now used. I had a few break off when I was using the Omni Brite 2.0 setup and now again with the Alpha nock system. I also ended up ruining a shaft trying to remove a nock receiver that had a broken finger as was mentioned by others.

Is there any safe way to remove the Omni nocks and replace them with Alpha nocks ? I have six new Spynal Tapps that have Omnis on them that I’d like to replace with lighted Alphas. I’m new to this game, I’m used to changing nocks at will.

You should be able to knock them out with a steel rod. Go to the Ten Point Website. There is a video on how to do it.

1/8 Diameter steel rod inserted thru the insert the entire length of the arrow and tapped with the flat side of a hammer removed my Omni nocks. A time or two I tapped the end of the rod on my garage floor, that worked equally well. The 4ft x 1/8th Rod was purchased at Home Depot.

So....... y’all are talking about heating a field point to get the insert out, then tapping the nock out with the rod. Just to be clear. Thanks!
No, the rod fits through the hole in the insert. I did have an aluminum insert that was too small for the rod to fit in. All brass inserts should be big enough.

Here’s a video I made a few years ago on removing Omni nocks.
If the nocks have been installed with Super Glue they are much harder to come out than nocks installed with two part epoxy.
Tenpoint uses two part epoxy on their nock install, Spynal Tapps or Jerry’s arrows , are glued with some kind of Super Glue.
