Will installing the nockturnal nocks cause you to have to move your sights to compensate for the added weight on the arrow?... I picked up a pack yesterday and shot a few times and I would swear that I was hitting 3"-4" low at 30 yards when I had the nockturnals installed. This happen for anyone else? I didnt think that the weight of them would make that big of a difference.

Didnt happen for me when I used mine. Do you have a scale so you can measure the weight difference.

I bought a different brand, but they weighed 28 gr.

My factory nock weighed 9 gr.

Unless you are shooting a very slow bow, I wouldn't think you would have that much difference at 30 yards.

I use them and see no difference as opposed to a standard nock.

20gr of added weight shouldnt change it that much. I have no issues with mine.
