Is It Worth It?

first off i am relatively new to archery. i bought my Mathews XT in 2006. it is my first bow and i love it. I am going to Cabelas tommorrow and was wondering if i shoudl buy a fletching jig. i have never done it before and am deciding on if it is worth it. i dont go through fletches alot, but would like to get my own custome colors and fix fletching when i do need to so that i dont have to make the 45 min drive to the place to get it done. i am shooting Gold Tip XT Hunter arrows with factory fletches now.

is it worth it, does it save money in the long run? or should i just pay someone else to do it?

(this is how you will know that i am new.) Is the advantage to Blazers that they are quieter? are they more accurate or durable or something else?

if i should buy it, whay brand of jig? i was lookin gat the Arizona EZ Fletch but i might want to try Blazers and i heard you cant put blazers in it.

What brand of fletch? glue?

I am obviously still learning so thanks for the help.

If you Have a sportsmans warehouse I would go there. Around here Cabellas is about $20 more for a bitz. and $15 for a jojan.

I would do the wraps cause the fletches stick better to wraps
Exactly! Plus having a jig is convenient and adds another dimension to the whole bow tweaking addiction.
