Which do I order?

Easton Archery recommends 5/16", whilst 3 Rivers Archery recommends 11/32".
https://eastonarchery.com/arrows_/legacy/
https://www.3riversarchery.com/easton-legacy-xx75-aluminum-shafts.html

I would like to hear from those with experience of the current Easton Legacy 2117 shafts and Bohning Classic nocks.

Thanks.

It is easier to get the bigger nock seated correctly than the smaller nock.

Thank you, Larry.

A misaligned nock was my main concern.

When I shot 2117's I used 5/16" nocks.  Having both I felt the 11/32" too large.  Frank

Thank you, Frank.

Best I err on the side of caution and get both sizes and decide for myself.

P.S.: When you say that the 11/32" nocks were too large, were you referring to the length or the internal diameter? Was there any play?

Nock tapers are ( for the most part) standardized.    They are all ( again) the same.   Hypothetically  speaking, there should be no difference in fit EXCEPT that, in order to achieve larger diameter, the bigger nock is that much longer.  A bit more surface area.

Smaller nocks fit on all the tapers.  Larger nocks, though they fit, might be oversized at the end, on a smaller sized shaft.

I just tried an 11/32 Bohning nock on a AO 2117 shaft. IMO to big on this shaft. Almost sloppy fit. I can feel some side to side movement with the nock seated on the shaft. We don’t want that.

Thank you, Chuck and Tom.

Tom, what does the AO in AO 2117 shaft stand for?

I use 5/16 nocks on 1918s, if a nock that is only 1/64" wider is fitting sloppy, there is something else going on, possibly bottoming out. Not all nocks are created equal. Sometimes the throats of nocks are different size, like 11/32 Mercury nocks have a wider throat than the 5/16" Mercury nocks. You don't want them so tight that nock flares when it fits tight on the bow string. That will mess up your arrow flight and possibly blow apart when shooting. If the tiny ledge bothers you, nocks are easy to taper back with good sandpaper. If a nock is bottoming out on too long of an arrow nock taper a couple of flat across the tip swipes with a file will correct that.

2117 is in between 11/32 and 5/16 so it really comes down to whatever you want to use. I've used both depending on what I had on hand never noticed a difference. the 2117 is 21/64" in diameter, an 11/32" shaft is 22/64" in diameter.

AO= Autumn Orange. I used the Boning index nocks and found I liked the 5/16 better. I had hoped to use the 11/32 for a little better visibility with the flourescent nocks but did not like the fit.

What Dan said. AO= Autumn Orange. I found the Flo green nocks show up the best in low light conditions for me.
