Default Tied nocking point

Hey Rick, I looked but I can't find the post you had about your way of tying a nocking point. Do you still have it around so you could repost it?

Here you go Bob.

Keep in mind - I used the pencil, so I could show clearly how the knot is done.

When I do them for myself I use a needle, and wrap the coils around it & the serving, then put that tag end through the eye of the needle, and pull it back through that way. Makes it real easy to do.

Thanks Rick. I got a new bow to set up and it's the first one in many bows that doesn't like where I've always put my nock point and figured I would do it this way this time.

A loop of serving material works if you don't have needle handy.

Yep, that works well also.
I just find it easier to hold the needle in place while I'm doing the wrapping.

Also, the needle I am using is pretty large.
It's more like one you would use for sewing leather, and has a large eye in it, which makes threading that tag end in real easy.

By the way - the technical name of that knot is "Nail Knot".

Thanks Rick. That is an education within itself. Never heard it called a nail knot.

tried the needle way the other night, It worked great! SO much easier.

Sure wish I knew this tip earlier.

I had been using a small piece of arrow shaft and the larger loops it created, made it a little harder to control.

I never knew the name of the knot either, until someone informed me of it after I made the video.

Been using it for years in both archery applications, and fishing.
Always called it a whip tie knot.

An old dog surely can learn new things, even if it's only the name of something.
