Can you imagine.  $35 arrow nocks.  lol

Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I need a GPS in a broadhead. I broke one off in a deer last year, and never found it. Broadhead and about 3 inches of PSE carbon arrow shaft. 

Sucker ran off into the cutover and just snorted at me for 30 minutes.

Jeez, arrows are already expensive.

Take my typical set up;
Easton Axis 400 Spine Arrow: $10.84 Each
Nokturnal illuminated nock: $11.16 +/-
G5 Monetec Broadhead; $13.33 Each
Total Arrow Cost: $35.33

Granted they are reusable to an extent, but when you lose two of them to pigs, it's costly.

The GPS is a great idea. I would hope it is also illuminated. I would buy at least one, just to test it out.

I bought a pack to try next fall.  If my accuracy isn't affected, I'll give them a try in the deer woods.

You'll enjoy them. especially for tuning and staying on top of everything when at full draw. Like others I do everything exactly the same every single time I draw. These help to identify when an error occurs.

I broke down and bought a Centerpoint sniper crossbow. It supposedly shoots 370 FPS. 

Well long story short, I goofed up the range values in the scope and missed a deer with it. And could not tell from the shot. Added lighted nock and its way better. 

I was watching the deer thinking, ok, its going to fall over anytime now. NOPE!! Shot under it. 

Took it home, thought, well maybe the broadhead caused an issue. Nope. Shot it with broadhead and lighted nock, its where it needs to be.

I tried lighten Nocs one year flung one at a huge buck aparently hit a small branch in low light and the noc either turned off when it hit the branch or when it hit the ground. I never recovered that arrow. Now I use a reflective tape on the arrow itself. You can shine a flashlight across the field and that arrow will pop out like a laser. Usually have to special order it in but you could use the same type reflective material that 18 wheelers have on them.
