Title: Bitzenburger Fletching Jig
Post by: BrandoninAZ on June 02, 2004, 10:38:00 PM
My neighbor came over the other day with two boxes full of archery stuff. He watches me shoot every day after school, and his friend was getting rid of things in their garage. Most of it was really old, but still useable. The best thing I found was a Bitzenburger fletching jig with a straight and right helical clamp.
Before using the Bitzenburger I used a Grayling (affordable). The Grayling wasn't all that great, and it could be a pain to change from 4 fletch to 3 fletch (the darn thing never seemed to screw back in straight). A really nice feature on the Bitz is the ease of switching from one fletching configuration to another. Just screw in, or unscrew a little screw. I also really like the feel of the metal vs plastic. The Bitzenburger allows for 105 X 75 unlike the Grayling.
For anyone looking for a fletching jig, the Grayling is alright, but if your budget isn't too tight go with the Bitzenburger.
