Simplicity, strength, and functionality were the driving force in the Contender LED lighted nock design for bows. By eliminating the practice collar, we created a sleek low-profile design. The Contender for bows includes the same universal fit bushings featured in our original design with one exception — to maintain the low-profile design, fitting a micro diameter arrow shaft just wasn’t possible. The Contenders fit X, H, S/GT with the included black bushings.
NOCK OUT Contenders are made from the same quality components found on the NOCK OUT lighted nock system including high-grade aircraft aluminum for the nock receiver and proprietary ultra-high strength polycarbonate.
A replaceable orange stop tab prevents accidental activation during transport and when not in use.

Fit: Universal Fit bushings allow you to size from an X nock (.204” ID), H nock (.233” ID), S nock (.244-.245” ID), and GT (.246” ID).
Weight: 21-25 grains depending on bushing used.
Fit: The Nock Out Micro 166 is specifically designed to fit into the 166” ID micro diameter shafts. These include: Easton – Injexion, Carbon Express – Adrenaline XSD and Gold Tip – Peirce.
Practice Mode: Now, you can choose to light up the LED or not to, saving battery life. Practice mode also prevents accidental activation during travel as well.
Easy Off: Simply pull the nock straight back until you hear a soft “click” and the LED turns off – no tools, no magnets, and it remains indexed to your vanes. Spend more time shooting than trying to figure out how to turn off your nock.
Universal Fit: Each 3-pack includes 3 sets of precision orange bushings to fit the 5 most common carbon arrow shafts on the market (total of 9 bushings per 3 pack).
If you use a variety of arrow shafts sizes, or have a family of archers, you won’t need to purchase multiple lighted nocks. Perfect for gift giving!
Waterproof/Blood Proof: In addition to the other features, NOCK OUT lighted nocks are waterproof and blood-proof. With the addition of the NOCK OUT bowfishing adapter, our nocks become the perfect application of lighted nocks for bowfishing!

Will your point of impact change if you use NOCK OUT lighted nocks from Clean-Shot Archery vs. regular nocks? ScoutLook Editor Josh Dahlke, a self-admitted “average” bowhunter, seeks to answer that question in this video.

Will NOCK OUT Lighted Nocks fit my arrows?
The NOCK OUT Lighted Nocks are designed to fit the 5 most popular arrow shaft sizes on the market, so unless your shaft is an unusual size, the NOCK OUT should fit. The package contains all of the bushings so you don’t need to worry about which package to buy – there is only ONE package. See the SPECS tab for a complete arrow fit list.
Are the batteries replaceable?
No, the battery is not replaceable. This was a design trade off with the “Easy Off” feature. This feature requires the battery/LED to be permanently glued and cannot be removed and reinstalled by the end user.
How do I turn off the LED? Do I need a magnet or a tool?
Turning the LED off is EASY – That’s why we call it “Easy Off!” Holding the nock receiver firmly, simply pull the nock straight back until there is an audible click and the LED light turns off. DON’T NOT TWIST OR ROTATE THE NOCK WHEN PULLING.
It looks like the nock adds length to the arrow. How much length does it add and does it affect the POI?
The design of the NOCK OUT with universal fit requires part of the LED/battery to be outside the shaft which adds about 1/2” to the shaft. All of our shooters (including those who shoot out to 80 yards) have not notice any change in POI (Point of Impact) and have opted not to make any adjustment to their shaft. While the added length weakens the spine, the added weight of the lighted nock strengths the spine for a balanced effect.
