I've been given a bundle of 3/8th Birch shafts (80 - 85lb spine) for one of my longbows. I want to make up a few test arrows just to see how they fly, but rather than go to all the trouble of self nocking them with horn inserts, I want to just glue on some plastic nocks.
Does anyone know a sourse of plastic nocks for a 3/8th shaft?

Thanks

Unless you are using some type of sanding jig to taper your nock tapers you may have an issue finding a nock taper tool that will fit 3/8 in. I have not seen one for sale lately since Don Brown of Riverside, Ca. passed away. Maybe on the other side of the pond there is one to be found?
