    Default Fletching Jig

    I am looking for a fletching jig. Would prefer one that I can do all 3 flights at the same time at a reasonable price.

    The Bitz is more expensive but it's metal compared to plastic with most others. It also has a ton of adjustability. you can only put fletch one feather at a time.

    They are a well built jig that will last a lifetime or 2...
    they aren't that much more than the ez fletch and they are alot more versatile.

    Well, Bitz is good but your original requirement was to do all three at the same time. A Bitz will not do that. Arizona Archery has some nice fletching jigs that will do just that. The issue with those is that you cannot adjust the fletching offset or change clamps to do a helical unless you have a clamp for every permutation you want to try.

    A Bitz or a Grayling (which is similar to a Bitz but reinforced nylon/plastic and a lot less expensive) will be a much more flexible alternative. You can buy the jig and then buy clamps to do striaght and helical in left or right variations. It will last you a lifetime unless you do something stupid with it...

    Hope that helped...

    It helped...define stupid would ya? I am just kidding but I cant what a person would do with a fletching jig. Scratch that I have five grandchildren in various stages of development so the possibilities are almost endless.
