I shoot the Black Eagle Renegades. The arrow itself is fantastic, however, I have had several nocks crack while practicing. Fortunately, the arrows have not blown apart or had any other issues. However, if I have old nockturnals with dead batteries, I now swap those out for the factory nocks. It has happened five times to me in the 18 arrows I have purchased. I have been shooting the same bow since 2015. It never happened once with other brands of arrows that I used before Black Eagle. I am betting that happened and just did it with enough force to damage the arrow too.
