Messing around- Firenocks and Gopro

Got the GoPro3+ mounted on my bow. I wanted to video my newly installed FireNock tracer's. This is just a video test of taking a frame rate of 49fps to 29fps.

    Bet it would look good if you mounted it on your head.

    Kinda thinking the same, the shock is messing with the video.

    The Tracer nocks are brighter than the video shows- My current arrow speed is +-300 fps. The lighted knocks are not legal to hunt with here, but I does help me with my bad shooting habits.

    How far away is the target? I had a hard time seeing it. Just wondering how it'd look on a deer.
    Pretty cool tho. Would love to get one.

    I am about 30-32 yards on the 3d Rinehart turkey. These Firenocks are bright! I was trying to slow the video down enough to see them. But in real life, it is like a laser beam in mid light. They turn on when you shoot them. To turn them off bounce them on the nock, The have a sensitive on/off Inertia switch.

    I shoot Lumenoks. Really like them but it is time for me to get new ones before season starts. The batteries are becoming week.
    Thinking bout something different.
    With the Lumenoks, some fit really tight and you need a pair of pliers to shut the thing off. That or stick a bloody nock in your mouth. [:D]

    I have been using the Nockturnal http://nockturnal.com/ ones for a few years. They do seem to hold up well. My Monster crushes a lot of different brand nocks... These, Easton and Victory have been the only ones not to crack after just a few shots. Lights stay on for days (maybe longer) if you don't turn them off. I like the green color light better, but that is personal preference.
    I did try a few other brands, but not Firenocks, and had less than desirable results. I know others who use all kinds of different lighted nocks and like their choice.
    My latest setup I am without lighted nocks, since not allowed where I was hunting. Not a huge deal to me. I run a pink wrap and fletch with white 4" feathers. Plenty of visibility for me unless the first or last few minutes of light.
