    Hey guys, I am wanting to purchase a fletching jig to repair/build my own arrows. Which jigs are the most versatile? I would be using aluminum,wood and carbon shafts with 3 vanes and feathers and different configurations- straight, left helical and **** feather down. Are there any that come with several clamps or do you have to buy those separately? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Bitzenberger is the best in my opinion. Ye Ole Archery Shoppe has them for $69 and it's well worth it.

    Bitz is the best.

    Having said that, I have a Grayling which works like the Bitz but it's made of fiber reinforced plastic. 3 years and dozens of arrows and it's still going strong.

    Blitz!

    I agree!
    Blitz is the best but i could only buy 1
    I also have a 6 clamp JO-Jan which is pretty good for fixed Helical!:biggrin1:

    Just in case these guys are confusing you :noidea: , I have a Grayling. Nice enough, but wish I'd bought the Bitz. Get the best the first time.

    I have a Grayling also...I can get the job done with it but i think a Bitz will be showing up at the house in the near future.

    My arrow builder uses Bitz. I am thinking about getting one so I can refletch my sons and friends arrows. I do not need to refletch mine.............................because I do not shoot at the same spot.:p Ok so maybe sometimes I just gotta do it. But not very often. I have other archery stuff I wanna buy instead of arrows and vanes.:peace:

    Grayling for a lot of reasons, Cheap so I bought it first. It is a plastic version on the Blitz. But it has one thing others do not have. They send me a shaft indexer for free. It replaces the hook on the end the supports the arrow.
