    Why do those pin points look like they're not fully inserted?
    Tricky light? The flat bit at the shaft end of the pile is looking like a groove, indentation, when it's actually flush.

    Understood. It really does look like a groove!

    Point wise... I could try some ACE points. I've got plenty around. The ACE nocks were a fairly tight fit, though, so I'd have to be careful.

    <edit>
    A different light on one of those points... I hadn't realised, but it actually tapers in a little, rather than being strictly flat. I think that goes some way to explaining the light effect in the previous picture (as well as the contrast issues)
