What do you think about this? Any one tried it yet? 



New Archery Products  introduced the New ThunderBall™ Magnetic Nocking System.  Unlike conventional nock systems, this new magnetic nocking system virtually eliminates the effects of string torque and uneven nock travel for increased accuracy, better flight and deeper penetration.  It is durable and installs in minutes.  The ThunderBall™ Magnetic Nocking System has an index tab for fast and easy vane orientation and it fits most popular carbon and aluminum arrow sizes.    

Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.

I wonder if the piece of metal in the knock will upset the foc or add excess weight to the arrow?

As far as accuracy is concerned, it doesnt matter what torques on your bow as long as it does it exactly the same evey time. Which brings me to my question, string twist. Anybody whose ever shot a peep sight, that doesnt use the tubing, knows that your string will sometimes twist. Thats why the tubing is there, to keep your peep in line. So what will keep the magnet lining up in exactly the same place every time, without pulling apart when you draw? If your string twist, even a little, then your arrow is off line. An ordinary nock allows the string to twist inside of it, without effecting the arrow. Also, if the magnet is that strong, will it not effect your arrow when they pull apart? Touch two magnets together and you will see that they dont easily pull straight apart, they generally slide somewhat. Seems to me that would have an effect on your arrow flight. Its a good idea, but i think i will stay with whats working.

I'm going to have to wait and see on these myself. I understand Miss' point and it makes sense.
