    Looking at buying a jig to fletch my own arrows. I am going to purchase the bitzenberger, but I will be using it to fletch the quickspins. My fletching will be slightly offset just a couple of degrees,Do I need to get the right helical or can the straight jig fletch them slightly offset?:cool:
     
  2. The straight clamp is what you want for a slight off set. I'd recommend a helical jig though, with today's short vanes the right helical clamp on mine dosen't show that much twist,, which can be adjusted. If you're wanting to use Quick Spin vanes, a right helical jig clamp is what's needed for the little "kicker" on the back of the vane. You can also use a straight clamp for the QS's too.

    You can but the jig with a straight clamp and set it for a right/offset. If, in the future you need to go with helical then just get the helical clamp. The jig will be adjustable for all the clamps; right, left, and straight.
