Burt Coyote Lumenok has a circuit inside that works with the conductive end of your carbon or aluminum shaft. Once seated properly, it lights at the shot so you can follow your arrow in flight. It stays lit up to 40 hours or until you turn it off. Several models are available to fit various arrow sizes. Weight and color (red or green) vary depending on model. Contact: Burt Coyote, 309/358-1602, www.lumenok.net.
Easton MicroLite Tracer lighted nock is the same size as the S-Nock Tracer but weighs 5.5 grains less (20.5 grains). An adhesive magnet on your riser turns it on as it passes by.

Firenock "G" Series lighted nocks are available in five styles to fit virtually all arrow sizes. The "brainy" technology behind this nock assures it will light up every time you shoot.
