    Default cheep one

    bought a grayling from cabelas darn if i can remember when.. got the right and stright clamp . at the time it was just to do repairs...but in the last few years (kids growing up) it was pressed it to service. Now if I had 2-5 more that would be great..one @ a time is ok for vains but doing feathers took forever...came out great thou so time well spent..all in all a nice cheep jig only had to trim it up a bit for clearance to do sm shafts.
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    I started with Cabela's multi fletch. Puts on 3 vanes at a time. Biggest piece of junk I've seen. Now I use a Bitzenberger. I love it.

    I use the Bohning jig. Works fine for me but I only do a dozen or so at a time. Tried the Bohning Helix but didn't really didn't see the benefit of the helical fletch on my 3d arrows.

    A few. I have a Martin with a straight clamp and I believe a 5 degree clamp, a Bitzenberger with full helical clamp and one with a straight clamp, a Jo-Jan single with full helical clamp, a 2 degree Bohning Tower (was upgraded with new clamp ring which aids spacing and extension blocks to place vanes farther up the shaft), 6 station Jo-Jan with straight clamps and a 6 station Jo-Jan with helical clamps.
    For the money I gave for the Bitz, it sucks and then I got into a pis___ match with Bitz over a straight clamp. I don't take crap from no one and da___ hate it when someone spits out BS to me. They screwed up and didn't want to correct the mistake. And the Bitz isn't a bit better than the Martin or Jo-Jan as far as spacing of fletchings. The upgrade kit for the Bitz is a must for perfect spacing, but I think another $35. The 5 degree clamp of the Martin is great as the degree still allows the arrow to be shot through a prong style rest (non-Nano arrows that is). The Bohning Tower??? I don't know as I haven't' worked with it that much - okay for single arrows, I guess, and then kind of costly for a all plastic jig. The multi Jo-Jans have proved the best and then I do quite a few dozen arrows per year. Oddly, though, the multi Jo-Jans have darn good spacing of fletchings. All jigs have their little quirks or "do it this way" to get a good fletching job. For the Jo-Jans and short vanes I use a matching vane in the far end of clamp so get a good seat of the vane being glued.
