    I've got Bohning's other red plastic/metal jig, and it wooks pretty good, although mine has a weak clamp, wish I'd have gotten the Grayling jig instread. Of course, I'd much rather have the Bitzenberger, last you a life time...

    I would go with a helical Grayling if I didnt have the $ for the Bitz. The Grayling is a working mans priced Bitz clone.

    i have AAE fletching jig and it only slight straight 1* degree but best price i can get anywhere like ebay, other archery online store either..

    you might want to take a look or dependable on yoru arrow rest if you are shoot a dropaway u can go any of fletching u like to, if u are shoot a 360* or tri van or WB u might want to shoot a straight or offset..

    Found a grayling but it says it only does 3&4 inch vanes.i shoot the 2" blazers.Been using the N.A.P quick fletch an they work fine i guess but fletching them myself would be fun to i think.now there may be a grayling that works on blazers but lancaster dont show 1.

    AAE what i have will do the job from 1.5 to 5" fletch in vanes or feathers, coz i shoot a tri van contour that need to be straight of offset but i'm happy with 1 degree offset blazer on my arrow.

    AAE are make by plastic and have line guides on clamp where u want to place ur fletch on.
    AAE jig can cost 20 dollar an jig or a kits for 30 doollar depend on store, but go to ebay and you'll see tons of jigs for best deal u can get.

    I may have missed it? Did anyone mention a Jo Jan multi fletcher? I have seen them in about 25% of the shops in the NW and dealers say they work really well. Any comment here?
    I have to agree with the Bitz though! I have 2 and they truly are a lifetimer!

    If you decide to get the Bohning, check the clamps.

    I bought one several years ago when I was out of town and needed to repair fletching. At the time it was good for what I needed, but when I got home, I put it away. A couple of days ago, I decided to use it to fletch some arrows with feathers. The clamp has "RIGHT" on it, but it is actually a LEFT helical.

    If you ever plan to fletch with feathers, be sure that you get a clamp that matches the feathers. Bohning may have a different definition of left and right.

    Bohning makes vanes which are neither rigth or left, so you're probably right, and they do have a differnt defination of left and right

    I own a Bitz. Im sayin the Grayling is the best budget next best thing. I use Bohning and AAE prodcucts, but in the budget fletching jig dept, Graylings got it . It works pretty much like a bitz , but isnt all metal.

    I have the grayling and the bohning and just picked up a bohning blazer fletcher (haven't tried it yet).

    between the Grayling and the Bohning clamp style fletcher I feel the Grayling is a the better of the two. I have used the Grayling for many years.
