Default Lighted nocks recommendation please

My nephew wants lighted nocks for his arrows for his birthday. He shoots Cabela's Carbon Hunter 400 55/70 arrows. What do y'all recommend?

Nocturnals are the best bang for the buck.

Nocturnal the easiest. Lumenoks are okay but mine have always turned off on impact. Glory nocks are hit or miss depending on your serving size; I gave up on them after having them pop off during the draw a couple times

I have actually had pretty good luck with the Chinese ebay nocks. I bought a pack of 6 for cheap and i think only 1 didn't work. The others lasted on several animals.

Only one that's ever failed me was Lumenok. It actually broke (1/2 the nock split off) and my shot landed 5 yards short of a 20 yard shot on a lucky doe.
Nocturnals have been flawless for me-- you'll notice they have a reinforcing rib of plastic on each side across the weak point where the plastic gets thin due to the light actuator/switch.

I use nocturnals too. Never had an issue with durability and work every time. I had the same issues with lumenoks as stated above.....they would split on the shot or turn off on impact quite a bit
