I bought myself a 62” 40 lb recurve for Christmas. The arrows I bought are Easton Legacy shafts. The nocks are not tight fitting to the factory string that is on the bow. When I nock an arrow it will fall off the string as soon as I tilt the bow down. How tight should a nock be on a traditional string? Is there different sized nocks to put on or should I get a different string. I have shot it a few times but the only way I can get the bow drawn is putting some slight finger pressure on the nock.
The goal is to practice a bunch get the arrows tuned and try and shoot a whitetail this fall. I have been hunting with compounds for 35 years now and wanted a different challenge.
I enjoy shooting traditional!
I'm not a big fan of nocks that are too snug. Are you sure you are getting the arrow seated all the way ? You don't have to get a new string, all you need is to change the serving on that one.
Reserving is an easy skill to learn.
Two noks is important with a trad bow. Thanks to the world class guys I shot with at the trad nationals almost 2 decades ago for taking the time to explain that to me.
