    Arizona E-Z Fletch Bolt

    I am wanting to start refletching my damaged arrows and really dont know much about it at all. I was thinking about getting the Arizona E-Z Bolt, but after reading about it i'm not sure if it will work or not. I am shooting a Horton TRT Ultra-Lite. I read somewhere that because of the radical helical that it applies it can cause drag on crossbows with a narrow rail. Does anyone know if it will drag on the Ultra-Lites rail or not, and are you able to fletch arrows that already has the nock in it or does the nock have to be removed first. Like i said, I have never fletched an arrow before and I would like to start learning how to do this so maybe someday I can start making my own complete arrows. Thanks for any advice.

    Friend any helical fletch will cause some drag. Get the Fletching Jig & don't worry about it. I have the EZ Bolt Jig my self

    I've got ... the Arizona and it works fine. I actually like it better than my high class Bitzenburger jig.

    The Arizona is a good fletcher. I use a Jo Jan for most of my fletching though.

    Just got done looking at their website...it appears there is a variety of configurations as far as vane length and helical. Which one do you use Duke?

    I shoot 2117 XX75 and use the AZ for aluminum arrows with the 4 degree offset. Very easy and turns out great arrows. Check them out on UTube. Good tutorial.

    Brenth, see???:-) I've heard nothing bad about the Arizona. A local crossbow shop uses one (or two:-). I've got my Bitz set up the way I want it but it's not something most folks would do.

    I use the AZ and like it but opted for the standard (green) version with right helical after noting that several users were having problems with the Bolt version fletched arrows not fitting into rail channels well. AZ generally does not accommodate shallow moon nocks. The notch isn't deep enough to capture and hold the arrow precisely in AZs (rudimentary) nock seat. For that reason - as well as greater overall strength - I use aluminum moon nocks and attached with hot melt glue. That way, its easy to make changes if the fetching is misaligned with the nock after refletching. BTW, the standard version also enables the use of longer vanes which the Bolt does not.
