Title: fletching tool
Post by: [Blocked] on January 01, 2013, 03:11:41 PM
i think i'm going to start fletching my arrows. the shop is charging $3 an arrow now. that's crazy

i'm looking for a fletcher that will fletch left and right helical. i currently need left helical because my broadheads have a slight left helical to them. i tried right and the arrows fly poorly.

any suggestions/ recommendations? what can i expect to pay

what about glue? any beeter than others?

thx for the help

a Good fletcher I would have no idea, I take mine to scheels and the guys in there don't charge me so I have never really looked into buying one.  As far as glue goes, I personally like using fast set glue,  The stuff is like concrete, don't need a lot of it, and it sets really fast, less then 30 seconds I would say.  Good luck finding a fletching tool!

how do you rate? free fletching is tough if not impossible to find. nice work

I think they do a really good job in there,  The problem is most of the time they are too busy so it takes a couple days to get them back,  They are supposed to charge a buck an arrow, so even if they would charge me its not that bad.

i priced it all out and figured it was easier and cheaper to have the shop fletch them. i don't go through many arrows. i've had the same dozen for years. if i go on a rampage, a buddy has an industrial bitzenberger from when he owned a shop that i can use. it was a good learning experience and an eye opener. i got sticker shock big time
