ohhhh per arrow...i would say no more than 50 cents. see i buy my vanes first so its cheaper. but they do them for me for free kuz i buy so much from there.
$12 Doz. vanes
$15 Doz. Feathers
$ 20 doz. Barred feathers
Thats what i charge.
Thems not to good a wages KBO
What a labor of love.
$3.00 a piece no mater what fletchings......I think.......
SFY have ya considerd gittin' ya a Bitz fletcher and doin'e self.
It is a really satisfyin' fellin' and ya know its done right.
Im poor sir. I would love to do it but I dont have the cash I am down to 3 hunting arrows and 1 practice arrow
The same rates havent changed in about 10 years!
Buy in Bulk!:laugh:
Just bought 300 barred feathers on E-Bay $26:biggrin1:
sell some of them snakes and git ya some.
or start a SFY bitz fletcher fund.
just save all your change and in 6 mo your got it
Look on ebay fer a deal.
i will say stay with tha Bitzenburger by far tha best and tha easiest ta git tha right job.
Also if ya wanta do it the speedy way i use 2 blitz.gigs if thats what they prefer but if im in a hurry iv got 2 JoJan 6 arrow multi-fletchers I can do a doz in 45min.:biggrin1:
I had one of them jo jans but i never really felt comfotably with it as tha Bitz.
sold it this year fer wht I paid fer it.
They aint that bad if ya set them all the same.
The only thing is after ya set them ya cant dial like the Blitz.
Bought the Jo Jan this past weekend. 6 fletcher jig and to me am dissappointed. There is not weight on the clamps against the arrow to make the fletch adhere tightly to the arrow. I went back to the arizona fletch until I can purchase a couple of the Bitz's again.
hey SFY, I have 3, if you want, you can borrow one, pm me your address....
So how many do you need? 3 for practice and one for the woods. Makes sense to me. I only ever make up 3 arrows for bowhunting. No sense wasting shafts.
I don't do too much shopping on EBay, but you could look for a used Bitzenberger. They last forever.
Locally here it's 3 for AAE vanes. 4 for Blazers.
You're MUCH better off doing it yourself.
I pay $3.00 for 4' vanes with a white wrap. But, I am getting some raeally cool wraps from jcmorgan I cant wait!eace:
You can get a cheap fletcher, I have a BPE that I've had for several years.
Under $30 and it puts the vanes on as well as more expensive models.
