    I agree, the video talks about the cost of a hunting arrow, well adding $20 doesnt help.
    Ive never lost an arrow hunting, so the cost is just too high for me personally. But I like the idea, way better than the one that was a barbed spear by far

    Video says up to 100 yards. It's a good idea, but would have been far more useful 25-30 years ago. Today's arrow speeds and broadheads don't leave too many arrows left in deer.

    Simpler solution, tie a walkman on your arrow and turn it on before shooting it. Just follow the sound and there ya go. TA DA! You can thank me now.

    I've liked this idea for a long time. Lighted nocks was a huge step in my opinion and have found arrows at night I couldn't find during the day. Everyone once in a while I get that one I just can't find. Only thing is the cost. $24 each is a bit pricey. Not something I'm going to run out and have to get.

    I saw this in my Instagram feed. I really like the idea, not so much for finding lost arrows while practicing, though that's always a bonus. I really like it as an additional measure to help find the arrow after shooting an animal. The price would be worth it to me if I found one bloody arrow that I otherwise would not have.

    Someone should tell them its a "nock" and not a "knock".

    Neat concept though.

    I have only had 1 arrow that stayed in the deer I shot, the rest the arrow went threw or was broken off so recovering the arrow or nock is not worth the $.

    I don't really think the idea is to help track an wounded animal. It's to find an arrow whether that's one that missed it's target or one that's lost after shooting an animal. I know I've buried several arrows in the ground and below the grass. Some I've found and some I haven't. Being able to locate those arrows would be pretty sweet. Wish they were a little more reasonable in price though.
