    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
