Firenock update and offer for 2012
What is Firenock "G" Series?
Replaceable nock and reusable electronic parts
Most of the Firenock "G" series electronic components are contained inside a special designed transparent polycarbonate plastic nock (Int. Pat., US Pat.). This uniquly designed polycarbonate plastic nock anchors and offers protection to the heart of the system (Firenock "G" series circuitry) and this design allows Firenock "G " series circuit to be removable from the nock. Thus Firenock "G" series nock is replaceable when it is worn out and Firenock "G" series circuit can be reused. As the Firenock is a translucent nock, it is always a good practice to change the nock once every 2 years as the material will degrade due to expose to ultra violet light and get brittle (aging) which can lead to cracking and breakage.
Unique cross lock battery wire connector
Nearly all Firenock "G" series uses its (Int. Pat. and US Pat.) cross lock gold plated battery wire connector to lock the battery in place. This special design battery wire connector eliminates the requirement of a heavy casing and can absorb most damaging shocks to the system when the shaft hits the game. For 2012, we added the EZcoil for as an alternative battery retaining system for some of the Firenock circuit system. This system allow battery to be replace with much ease, the only down side is that it must be used with the Firenock Extreme shock end cap as the EZcoil system have no battery holding capability. A top compression coil system was also introduced for 2012, which will be used on the new Firenock style 0(zero) due to ultra small shaft diameter that it need to fit inside.
Enhancing your rate of game recovery
Unlike other brands’ lighted nock, Firenock "G" series will remain lit even when it is shot into solid objects like bone, wood or stone. This tough property of Firenock "G” series is accomplished by the special designed circuitry (US Pat. Pending). Once Firenock "G" series circuitry is activated, it will remain lit until the circuitry is deactivated by the archer. This unique characteristic of the circuitry allows archers to track their game and this significantly increases the probability of game recovery.
Virtually installation free and failure free
For ease of testing of reliability, we designed the Firenock “G” series circuitry to function even if it is removed from the shaft. Thus there should be virtually no failure after installation of Firenock as you can test the system before it is installed into the arrow shaft. For versatility, the polycarbonate plastic nock is engineered to be able to fit in different brands’ standard shafts. Archers can use different brand’s shaft according to their will and according to different hunting environments.
Firenock S style adds ~15 grains to your normal hunting arrow. This makes Firenock “G” series the ultimate lighted nock system for today’s archers not just on reliability alone but also on weight (speed). In case of Firenock E style, the net difference is only about 9 grains!
With today’s high-speed bows, arrows and crossbow bolts can achieve a speed of over 300 and 365 ft/sec respectively. Furthermore, with today’s real life camo finishing, it becomes almost impossible to visually trace your arrow after shooting. Under broad daylight, Firenock will let you see the entire arrow flight up to 65 yards. In total darkness, Firenock will let you see the flight even up to hundreds of yards.
The high intensity focus beam LED (Firenock "G" Series LED are all rated at 11,000 LUX) allows you to see Firenock under almost any lighting condition.
Ultra long lasting
With Firenock "G" series low power consumption ultra bright LED, you can use Firenock "G" series as a location beacon to easily find the location of the downed game in the dark and to use it continuously for hours. Firenock [H] series hunting circuit will last up to 30 hours and go dim for up to 6 weeks with a [BR] battery. Firenock [I] series blinking circuit will blink for 7 to 10 days with a [BR] battery.
True Switch Technology
Firenock "G" series use true switch technology to arm and disarm the light circuit system. Like a normal switch for light when it is not on, there is ZERO power consumption/drain. However, other brands of lighted nocks which usually employ sleep or low drain systems, there is virtually no true shelf life of battery as the battery is drained continuously. For Firenock, the installed battery will be able to function is as long as the shelf life of the battery is not expired. When the installed battery dies out, Firenock is ready to function again with a new battery installed. In case of Firenock's [BR] standard battery, if stored in 40 °F it can be as long as 13 months (just about a year in room temperature), while the [BL] is rated for no less than 36 months. For 2012, we added the [BU] battery which we are guarantee the battery ability at 90% for up to five year from the date it was made.
Hunter’s mind oriented
Firenock "G" series "S" style nock will add ~15 grains to your arrow. One should re-sight the bow for the difference. An arrow of 390 grains leaving the bow at 260 ft/sec, would hit less than 1/2" lower at 20 yards according to our tests.
For practice purpose, each pack of Firenock "G" series includes matched-weight (+/- 1 grain) practice nocks in green color. You can use the matched-weight practice nock to re-sight the bow and to save money. Not to mention having different colored nocks for spares since the nocks are field changeable.
With the above features, we believe that Firenock "G" series offers the most advanced, the most compact, the most versatile, the lightest, the brightest, and the most dependable lighted nock available on the present market. Knowing the above: if you demand a lighted nock for your archery setup, can you afford not to have Firenock at the back of your arrow for moments that seeing the shot is everything?
