Hi all,
 
I'm looking for one of these old nocks to replace a broken one on a Easton spar.
 
This 5/16" nocks fits into a metallic nock insert but glued into the Easton spar...  Roll Eyes
 
Is it possible to find this part somewhere ?
 
Thanks in advance for your help.  Wink

What's the I.D. and O.D. on those rods?  Maybe something a bit more modern would work.

I have some old nocks with aluminum inserts that look like that, no idea what size they are. Don't know how the nock is supposed to stay on the insert.

If you don't find anything retail send me an email and I'll dig in the old parts bins.

The aluminum insert is glued into the rod. This leaves a pointed end on the rod. The nock is drilled with a pointed hole which mates with the insert. This keeps all centred.
