    I've never ordered from (or heard of) them before.

    Are you going to be doing a LOT of fletching? Personally I would much rather use a bitzenburger and do 1 arrow at a time then attempt to play with 6 all at once...

    damb I have to agree w/dredly on this one.......there is no comparison to a bitz......they are the best and like he said unless you fleching 25 or so dozen a year than 1-3 bitz's will work much better.....May cost a little more to begin w/ but think about it this way......when the pro shop that I worked at a few years ago went out of bussiness.....they sold there fletching set up......had twelve bitz's on around peice of plywood that was attatched to the swivle plate of a boat seat.....kinda like a lazy susan I think they are called.....

    well when we closed we sold that set up for $50 MORE than it cost the shop....and I know for a fact in the 3 years that I worked there I fletched well over 100 dozen arrows a year......so you figure out the math......cuz I aint good at it.......

    oh and they dont wear out either:noidea:

    A friend of mine has a Jo-Jan fletcher (single) and it's not made very well.
    I personally have a Grayling and I like it but I think Dredly is right in the Bitzenberger. It's nice and will last a lifetime. The Grayling is a less expensive fiber-filled nylon knock-off version of the Bitzenberger.

    Never bought stuff from Mountain Archery.

    I've bought stuff off of this site and the service is very good and the prices/shipping are fair. I've also got stuff from Keystone Country Store when I can't find things at my local shop.

    I have never ordered from mountain archery either.

    The Jo-Jan seems like a very nice fletcher but I agree that you just can't beat a bitz. If you do order from them keep us informed on their service then we can add them to our favorites for future orders.:peace:

    They are a good service company...I only had 1 problem with a backorder, but it was resolved after 1 phone call...they actually emailed me an appology too...I was impressed:cool:

    Great service and the prices on their GT shafts on the Ebay auctions are great.
