Half moons have an indention in them that fits your string similar to an arrow fitting on a bow string. just like carbon and aluminum, basically a matter of preference.

It is possible to miss align your bolt on your on your string and have a bad shot with a half moon.

My vision will not shoot flat noks. String angle is too steep when cocked. Makes it dryfire or so they say...

I have shot the flat knocks with my Horton team realtree 175 and they shot just as good as the half moons. no differce at all.

Although it's not what I have right now (cause they aren't handy where I live)I actually prefered the flat.

When using the moons, I always give the arrow a little twist after loading just to make sure that the knock is seated good. Don't know if that's needed or not, but no need for that with the flats.
