    I want to start fletching my own arrows and i need opinions on a good fletching jig...plus..what glue do you recommend.I don't know if it matter's,but i use 4" easton vanes.I do my own work on my bows...so surely i can fletch my own arrows and not to mention that it would give me some self satisfaction doing it my self.I'll get the jig as soon as i get back home.One more thing...i only live an hour from outdoor world/cabel's.Thanks

    The Arizona EZ Fletcher is quick and very easy to use...and costs around $45. You can use Bohning FletchTite glue or a deritave of superglue with the vanes you will be using.

    who cares about camo???

    you think the deer stand just out of range and decide weather you camo is good enough to walk in front of???

    heck no they want to know that your fletchings are on straight.....:D

    First choice would be the Bitz followed by Grayling for me. I use Saunders NPV for glue, not as fast as super glue, but will work on carbon, aluminum, wood or fiberglass and my Blazers don't come off even with a good helical twist.

    I use a grayling jig with a shaft indexer on the end of the jig. I holds the shaft tighter. I use Goat tough glue but any CA glue works good. I use the jig for all my arrows.

    bitz is the best... and Ilove AEE fast set gel. the best I've ever used. I like it better than goat tuff and bohnings glues.. dont need to clean arrows either. and for 2 years havent had a fletch tear off.

    If I were to do it again I would get the Bitzenberger. I have a Grayling now. Not bad, but perhaps not the best. I use Fletchtight Platinim the most. Slow, yes. But I'm only fletching for me. Superglue if you need to make time.

    Bitz without a doubt. No questions asked and use nothing but GoatTuff glue.

    Buy good in the beginning or you'll buy good later

    With the amount of helical you like, I'd get a Bitzenberger. The E-Z Fletch is a good jig and very fast. I used one for years, but they aren't adjustable. You have to pick straight, offset or helical.
