Fletching jig
« on: February 01, 2023, 10:05:42 pm »
Looking for some input on a fletching jig. I've googled it but there's so many different one's on the market. As a beginner bowyer what kind of jig should I consider?

I have a JoJan Multi Fletch and it is very versatile. Mine is a straight fletch but you can offset the feather jig either to the left or right.

I have the same as Pat. I have a very limited budget. Iím sure there are better ones if you have a budget for them but for what I do my JoJan works fine.

I've used the same Bitzenburger for 20 plus years. I will probably be using it 20 years from now. If I'm still "here" :)

I also use a Jo Jan multifletcher for about 23 years now, but I like also to fletch without a jig ( only use a cardboard with a hole and pencil markers for the feather position for marking the shaft ) and without glue only with some wrapping of sinew.

The JoJan I have was given to me by a friend over 30 years ago and it was given to him by a man that used it in the 1950s and 60s.

I have several Bitzenburger jigs.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Get the best you can afford!  I have a Bitzenberger, you can get left, right, and straight clamps for it.

I knew I was going to be into this archery thing for the long haul so I started buying and trading for new and used Bitzes back in the 70s.

I had a lot more but gave them to people just starting out, 6 is all I need, these are on a lazy Susan table that rotates.

Been using the same Bitz for over 50 years. Replaced the clamp cause I dropped it on concrete and bent it. Very good bargain.

I used the Jojan Multi for years. Itís been discontinued for quite some time and they can be hard to find. I sold them and switched to the newer Avalon Multi Fletch carried by 3 Rivers. Itís the same design and about the same price as a used Jojan. It works just the same but has higher quality hardware and the parts are machined.
