Default FACT weight system for GT????

I just received my new GT 500's and some FACT system weights and need to know if anybody can tell me how you are changing the weights. The way I understand it is that the nock has to be removed to add or subtract weights. How are you doing this without damaging the the arrow or having to put a new nock on every time.

Unless the nocks are glued in (shouldn't be) you can just pull them out.
Sometimes it takes a little twisting to get them to budge, but there will be no damage (unless you're a bull in a china closet), and you can just push the nock back in when ready.

I hope you got the long (longer than the arrow shaft) allen wrench to use on the weights for the point end. I didn't and had to build my own.
Otherwise, you'll have to remove the insert every time to install, and/or remove them, and that is a huge PITA.
