    Default bitzenburger

    i want to buy a bitzenburger jig.... ebay of course... i want a straight fletch, but with i guess a 4 degree offset??? not a helical... i want the fletch 1/2 way between a straight, and a helical... anyways.... if i want the odd vane facing down, do i need to buy a certain nock reciever???? i want to shoot 3, 4" vanes.... with the odd color down... what do i need? also, how do i set it up so i can have a right hand offset??? and do i need a bitzenburger, or is the red plastic bohning worth trying out? thankyou in advance for the help

    Good decision on the Bitz, it's the Cadillac of fletching jigs.
    Sounds like you want some offset, so get a straight clamp. The instructions w/ your Bitz will show you how to adjust for offset. If you don't get instructions w/ your jig, you can find them on the net. Or, just post back here and I will link them for you. Assuming you are using carbon arrows, you will have adjustable nocks so the nock reciever is a non-issue. I went ahead and linked the instruction for the Bitz. Read them, and things will become clear.

    Offset is a function of the set-up of the jig. Helical (left or right) or not at all (straight) is a function of the clamp, and the offset of the jig.

    I personally use and (strongly) endorse the Zenith nock receiver for the Bitz jig.
