Thanks Corey! I always enjoy educational videos! Keep up the great work.

Would consider tying in nock sets and check arrow level prior to tie on D loop…..metal speed nocks can be notorious for coming loose and flying off

Excellent program Cory

Nice Cory thank you..I've always tied clove hitches in opposite directions because i didn't know how to tie that..I'm guessing a pair of needle nose ran backwards in the d loop would work to stretch it out
