Best all around fletching jig??
I"d like to start fletching my own arrows. I shoot an old (and I mean old!!!1976) PSE, and a new Matthew's Creed. I"d like to fletch arrows for both but I need 2 different types of fletchings and need to change the Helix. Is there a fletching jig out there that can do both/adjustable or should I have two or more separate jigs. With that in mind my children are also starting to shoot and may have to set up those arrows different also. Thanks in advance!!

Yes, there are a number of them but one of the best is a bitzenburger, it will last you a lifetime and wont cost a lot, its under $90 new.
The things you do today will be tomorrows topics of conversation, make it a good story!

I'd agree on the Bitzenburger. Hands down the best fletching jig for the money.

Bitzenburger, though I started on Grayling. Thinking of selling the spare set-up I have. PM me if interested.

AAE mini fletch helical for short vanes and the Bitz for other vanes. You can get a lot of helical with the mini on narrow diameter shafts. Grayling is ok, not the best but will do the job.

I would go with Bitzenburger, I have a clamp that I use for short feathers for my compound and one for 4" feathers for traditional. Simple to set up and use.

Bitzenburger is the way to go. It's easy to use and does a heck of a job!

I'd agree on the Bitzenburger.

Thanks for the input!! Sounds like the blitz is most compatible. Best place to buy online?? Only one archery shop here and only gets random orders. Ill check with him tomorrow though.

I've had a jo-jan, bitzenburger, and now a Arizona ez fletch mini right helical. My favorite is the AZ mini.

Bitz. If you toy with it enough you can figure out how to put a lot of helical on skinny carbons. Never fletched anything smaller than Axis diameter but never had trouble getting a good amount of helical on them.

AAE Ez Fletch Mini. Any of their EZ fletch jigs work great. Never an issue.
