Does adding a lighted nock to your arrow affect the flight?

Do you use them? What do you use?

Affects the flight very little. I use Nocturnal brand. Also know some that shoot 100+ yards that use them so they can watch the flight of the arrows,

Like anything else in archery, practice with what you are going to hunt with. With that, I use Nocturnals. On my set up, I don't notice any difference, so during practice secessions, I don't even use them, unless I practice right at last light. Looks like a rocket taking off!!! grin

I'm going to give them a try this year.
I'm old and need all the help I can get!
X2 on practice with what you are going to hunt with!...Adjust just as you would between field points and broadheads.

I have some on one set of arrows. They are really good, but make sure you know how to turn them off correctly. There is and art to it.

I always use them when I can and haven't had any problems. Love that you can see exactly where your arrow goes, especially if it's low light conditions.

If you go out of state thought watch out, they're still outlawed in some of the western states.
