Dan, years ago I had one of those revelations about what showed up the best for me in low light. Happened on our old range in a scrub Oak tree area. We had a target setup so you shot from lite into the shadows. I had a couple arrows with flo green nocks on them when I hit the target those flo green nocks “shined” at me. I went home and ordered a hundred.

Yep, flo green and yellow really stand out for me.

I think somebody did some real testing and found that Flo-green is The Winner in low light, which would explain why so many road crews and traffic cops wear it.

I sure do see flo-green nocks better than any other color I've tried... which puts me in a quandary....

I've been using different color nocks on different size arrows so I don't have to look too close to scoop up matched shafts for the bow in hand - red on the 1816s, flo-green on the 1916s... though I've got a pretty good variety on hand for the 20XX bracket....

But it may end up with all of my hunting arrows wearing one color....

That's an educational photo.

Would have liked to seen Flo pink in the mix. White acquits itself very well.

Well Longcruise, I've put it in the mix, because it's what I shoot. I was in SD and my buddy and I had tagged out and were drinking beer. SO take this with a grain of salt. It was competition at dusk and one into dark with a light for beers.

My flo-pink was a clear looser to Chartreuse, is what he called it.

FL. Green, Fl. Yellow, White and Sky Blue show up real good for me.

Chartreuse, Fl. Yellow, Fl. Orange, and White work good for me.

I have tried flow yellow, green, orange, and pink.

For me the yellow and green can been seen the longest with the least amount of light

Makes you wonder why fluorescent orange was chosen for firearm season.
