    I don't know, sounds like you're on your own if you use them! That scares the chit out of me.

    I'd have to see them first.I think Frank just uses regular aluminum inserts. Or maybe I'm wrong?

    I would use regular aluminum inserts IMO.

    I use lots of regular inserts in both ends with most bows an no problem . Except high power bows that I use no plastic nocks as I have split them an ruined the rear of arrows. I don,t use regular inserts on high power bows anymore an think they are hard on my serving ? with not enough contact area . they look good to me as long as ther not to short an pop out. I don,t do anything to my nocks anymore an just push them in as long as a snug fit an no problem even in high power bows .

    Paul, what arrows are you using, the 2219s? I use Excal aluminum flat nocks in carbons, or plastic flats.

    Those would be for Carbons. I've got Firenock flats that will fit both and Firenock M nocks that will fit both. They just look like they might work and be lighter and cheaper.

    Where do you get Excal aluminum nocks.All I have seen are Black Eagle aluminums. The only flat plastic nocks I have seen that I like are the Firenocks. The Eastons are terrible IMO and the BE's arent much better.

    What size carbons do they fit? I know Easton make Excal arrows.

    They fit my BEEs. Not super tight but not loose and no accuracy problems. I do wish there was something concentric other than Firenock. Those o rings are a pain, accurate or not.

    Sounds like a good way to make other bows auto unloaders to me,, anything about Ravin scares the hell outa me. There are a lot of other components that are proven to be safe!

    Are they aluminum? or plastic? Actual nocks or inserts.The only aluminum ones I have seen are made by Black Eagle.I'm pretty sure the ones in the Diablo's are a different diameter and made by Easton I would guess.

    for .300" id Black eagles I have a bunch from camx shafts since they are factory and use the BEE arrows I would guess they are Blak Eagles, and yes the diablo's don't remember the size, but I think are .296"? are eastons, or the ones I have used were.

    Yeah the Eastons are .297. I dont really like the BE plastic nocks.They seem to hang over in spots like Easton plastic nocks. I like the BE aluminum flat nocks. Their just a little heavy at the back of the arrow. I was thinking these bushings might work and be a little lighter if not too sharp. Otherwise I'll just stick with the Firenocks.The O-rings are a pain but I can use them in aluminum or carbon shafts.

    The Black Eagle aluminum that come in the Camx Accuspines are very light, the Camx shafts are Executioners, and spine matched 20" shafts. They are 8 grains and the F nocks from firenock with the Orings installed are 11 grains. 3 grains is meaningless, would amount to .l% maybe in FOC change, and 1 fps which is not even noticeable at 100 yards on POI change!

    I know the Accuspines are BE shafts. The ones I have in my Spynal Tapps are like the ones in the Excal Diablo's. They have threads and weigh 19-20gns. I was just assuming they were BE flat aluminum nocks.

    The ones you have are what I'm looking for.Or something similar like these bushings. I cant tell from your pic.Do those have the threads?Do you know where else to get them other than CamX? I like the Firenocks but they are pricey counting shipping and O-rings getting them from Dorge. $21 for 7 20180216_203215.jpg
