Hi all,

I got some nockturnals and they are popping out of my shafts sometimes. They aren't quite as tight on my new arrows. I think i have the right size though.

What can i use to make them stick better thats not permanent?

Probably didn't buy the right ones for your arrow brand.

Using the ones labeled "GT" for my gold tips and they are SNUG.

Rosin from a rosin bag like used for base ball will make them stick in place better.

Take a plastic shopping bag and put in on the end of your shaft, then slip the knock in.. pull off the excess bag off and if there's any pieces sticking out take a match or lighter and heat them, they will shrink.

Done it million times; it works!

Man great idea. I had one a little loose and I grabbed a bag and tried it out. Tightened right up. Thanks a lot.
