So there is a little tolerance on the size? I'm a machinist and .003" can make the difference between fitting and not.
No, the Versa nocks I used in the CenterPunch were sized to fit the .297 ID.

TX is correct. The Versa-Nocks are machined from .3015" to either .2975 for Center Punch arrows OR .2835" for Easton FMJ's. The Versa-Nock standard is .3015" out of the bag. However once you machine down to the smaller diameter, you are now required to glue them in for the fact you lose the spines for the press-in ability on the standard. The standards swag the spines for the interference fit.

This may shed a bit more geometry difference in nocks verses the VN.

The Versa-Nock is a better designed and better shooting version of a moon nock. Look how the string sits evenly and completely down inside the nock.

Hi Matt,

Have you changed your fletching choice recently?
Thought you were shooting the AAE Max Stealth vanes that say MAX STEALTH on the side of vanes?
Are those vanes in the pics a different type/length/weight of MAX vane?

Hi George,

What diameter of center serving best fits the standard, .3015 Versa Nocks?

That’s the same vane I have been shooting for a few seasons now.

so you are saying if you want versa nocks in a centerpunch arrow they must be glued they will not press fit

The standard industry manufactures .300" ID shafts. A few others, Center Punch, GT Nitro's and Easton FMJ's have thicker a wall reducing the ID. Center Punch for example is .297" ID.
Versa-Nocks can be machined for these exceptions and can be made to press fit. There is a small additional cost for the machining time however the molded nock is made for the masses not the special shafts.

It's the only nock I'll use and like HuntersThompson's short answer, Nocket science.

Completely different nock build vs Alph which does have a center apex on nock to string contact. To optimize string to nock contact one needs a left and right to center nock engagement on discharge. That means you will get more consistency when shooting.

This nock looks nothing special but there has been extensive engineering and and shooting data exhausted into this ballistic grade polymer nock. You can get them at Wyvern's Creations.

How do you go about getting buying them already machined for the CenterPunch arrows?

Have you contacted Wyvern to see if he has them in stock ready to go yet. If he gets enough calls for them in .297 I bet it happens.....The all mighty dollar still got some pull. 😈

Just ordered a couple of dozen Versa nocks from Wyvern to try in my X1 whenever it arrives. Have some Zombie shafts coming for me to index and fletch with Heat vanes. Now if the Dr. would just release me to shoot. (y)

SavedWretch,
I love the Versa-Nock out of my Mission Sub-1. Great accuracy.
However, the few guys that have been test-shooting the X1 seem to prefer the ARC nocks for best accuracy.
Have you got a couple dozen or so ARC nocks, also?

I’ve been unable to find any ARC nocks. I know they are bmiller’s prefered nock for his X1. As soon as I can find some I plan on buying them.
Honestly I’m not crazy about glued in aluminum nocks but if they’re my best option I’ll use them.

How much do the Versa nocks weigh?
