My Excalibur arrows came without nocks on them. Are they missing?
The bow is designed to use a flat butt ended arrow. Your options are either to use a plug type insert which cannot be used to withdraw the arrow from a target in which it has sunk too far, or a CAP insert which can.
Moon nocks are a no-no since they are totally without purpose and can direct the string under the arrow if you don't align them correctly.
Being of the mind that purpose is of more importance than appearance, we continue to use CAP inserts. The reason the rear inserts are threaded is so our T handle arrow puller can be threaded into the end of the arrow to remove the it from a target.
