Re: Broken Horn Nock
- 3Rivers Archery sells horn nocks for ELBs. I have used their Smooth On
epoxy to repair bows with great success. The problem with standard
hardware store epoxy is that it dries hard. The shock a bow takes
often cracks the bonding layer formed by the glue. The Smooth On epoxy
dries flexible and can take the shock.
