What color you guys shooting this year? Have shot the green and red for years. Tried the blue this year at a night 3D shoot. WOW! These suckers light up the world.

Red, only because all the accessories on my bow are red and I like stuff to match.

I shoot blue Luminocks and they're ok. Sounds like I need to grab a few pink ones!

I like the amber/red ones because they tend to show up better in my videos. Haven't tried the blue but thinking they'd be a lot like the green and just glare out badly and look white in the video.

Are those "srobing" nockturnals the ones I saw someone on TV shoot with? Flashing light sticking out of the side of that deer? They looked pretty bright. Are yall using the nockturnals or the lumenocks?

I've had better luck with the nockturnals... too many failure to light problems with the lumenocks, but haven't tried them in a long time. Maybe they've improved...

I had heard the pink were good. I really wanted to shoot the strobes but have to add bushings/adapters for anything other than blue, red, or green to my gold tips. “Unless you guys know something I don’t?” Have had best luck nocturnals as well, 1 out of every 3/4 packs might be dead... practice arrow

Red or green nocturnals seem to show up best on video. I have a bunch of blue ones but don’t care for them much. Shot the strobes last season and they did well. Might have to try the pink ones.

Yes, I like them better then the Nocturnals. Much easier to turn off and built better IMO. The guy who Owns Glory nocks is the same guy who owned Nocturnal until he sold to Rage who now makes Nocturnals.

I've only tried the red and green Nocturnals. Green is WAY easier to see.

Tried the Glory Nocks. Out of 2 packages half of them didn't work straight out of the package. In fact, I think 5 of the 6 now don't work. I'll stick with Nocturnals.
