i started with a martin fletching jig and then my buddy wouldnt stop talking about his E-Z fletch. i bought one and love it. i even broke one of the arms off somehow. called the company and they said send it in and if they cant fix it, theyll replace it and they did.
Tried a Grayling...worked fine. E-Z Fletch...worked fine. Had a Bitz...didn't like it very much...a little sloppy and I didn't think spending another $35 or so was the answer...Sold them all...Then I got a Bearpaw jig from Lancaster for about $50...Does my 3-vanes (cock-vane out), straight w/about 3º off-set perfectly (Blazers/Predators/Fuzion). Will do longer vanes and you can get a helical clamp I think. Does 4 or 6-vanes with the flip of a switch...Comes w/an arrow rest for narrow or fat arrows. Very modular...German made from an old archery company. I think it's the best single-vane fletcher I've used yet. Spacing is good, everything is tight. Thinking of getting one or two more.
