    Ok I need some recommendations on the kind of fletching jig to buy, (One that won't break the bank, but get the job done!) I am still not sure If I should get a jig to fletch helical vanes, or go with straight vanes. What's ya'lls opinion??? Also if I am understanding right, to get an offset you just use a straight jig, and offset it by hand, CORRECT???

    Also which brands of jigs will allow me to do an offset ? I know some brands uses a magnet to hold the clamp, if thats the case how do you offset your fletching??

    As you can see I am very confused on all this, but am very interested in fletching my own arrows!!


    Please help me out, THANKS !!!!!

    They are a little pricey but nothing beats a Bitzenberger in my opinion.

    I agree, The best!
    And fletching stright, left, right, it dont matter, Unless your shooting a recurve or stick bow, Run the helical turning into the bow right for right hand, left for left!:peace:

    I was trying to find you a pic but couldnt, I would not get anything less than a Bitzenburger, they are rock solid, built to last, infanetly adjustable and can do any fletching style you want......

    you can getthem on this website for $75

    you can also getthem at your local gander mountain for $69

    and trust me they are worth every penny.....I have 3 of them and will most likely get 3 more....

    Helical!

    Stabilize's the arrow better in outside conditions like wind if the arrow has spin to it!

    My blazers with offset work just fine with muzzy's for stabalization, even in wind out to 35 yards.

    Bitz are the best but Grayling makes a good copy out of plastic for about half the cost. I've been using a couple of old Bohning jigs with Grayling clamps for years too. Helical will control fixed broadheads quicker but if the bow and arrows are tuned very well good flight is also possible. The helical helps with form errors due to positions encountered in hunting situations.
