im going to start building my own arrows, i plan on using blazer or fushion vanes. Anyway what is the best fletching jig for the job? Also is there anything else i should know before trying to put together my own arrows?
I just started doing my own arrows and I got the bohning tower jig... it is almost fool proof. I'd also recommend a precision bottle like a vista with there metal tips. It gives you the ability to make an extremely small bead of glue.
I have the Bitz and Arizona EZ-Fletch. The Bitz is real easy to use but takes longer. The EZ-Fletch is fast and easy to use but you have to pay more attention when applying the glue. I recommend either. I primarily use my Bitz but my AEZ is great.
One advantage that the AEZ has over the Bitz is that it is very easy to replace a single vane. With my Bitz I have to replace all three when I lose one due to not having the TM fletch nock receiver for my Blitz (I did just order one a couple days ago though and we shall see how easy it is then).
