I have them on my Carbon Cheetahs and my Axis.

I have the solid white nocks on the Axis and use the red light. It is bright enough that you do not have to drill it out. I used a drill bit by hand, rather than in the drill and carefully whittled it out. I also use wooden dowls instead of the extra nocks. I'm always running out of nocks and hate to destroy them.

If you sand the nock down too much and it is loose and even sticks to the string, you can wrap scotch tape around it to tighten it up.

Except there is absolutely no need to drill the translucent nocks, or glue the lite in the nock.. It may be a little more work to pull the nock out and turn the lit off manually but they will work fine that way and if you need a new battery uou just pull the nock out and put one in.

I found some of the push pull ones at Academy today, except they are not the Thill brand. They areade by Rod-n-Bobbs. But should work. The only Thill's I can find are the twist ones.

Yeah, I think I've switched over completely to Rod-n-Bob's. I may have a few Thills left. I think I'll skip over there this week and get some more.
