How to tie nock sets

John Dudley, host of Nocked and Ready to Rock, demonstrates how to tie nock sets in this eighth part of his 2015 video series for setting up a compound bow for hunting.

Nock sets are affixed to the bowstring so that the archer can nock an arrow in the same spot for every shot. A nock set consists of two parts that frame the spot where the arrow should be nocked for each shot.

Dudley likes to make his own nock sets out of archery thread, rather than clamp on brass ones familiar to many archers. In this video, he talks about why he prefers to make his own, and demonstrates how he makes them.
