I have 2 different jigs, both work good...one is the Arizona EZ Fletch, does all three at a time if you wish...you can get different arms, with different degrees of offset, or straight...I also have a Bitzenburger, only does one fletch at a time, and is more of a helical, than an offset.... Like I said, both work good, plus you get the satisfaction of "rollin' yo' own"!!!!

I have a jo-jan multifletcher, 3 bitzenberger single fletchers and 3 arizona ez fletchs..

By far, the jo-jan is the fastest accurate way to fletch, bitzenberger is good for fletching or repairing a single arrow.. the arizona ezfletch will adhere all three vanes simultaneously but takes practice to use accurately.

For the compound, I shoot 4"quickspins at a 4degree offset and the wiskerbiscuit does deform my vanes in time.. But I am prolly one of the only guys on here that is still shooting aluminums!

First, I prefer someone ELSE do it. I'd rather spend my free time shooting than working on crap.

Get ya some blazer vanes and get the heel rid of that worthless "biscuit" and you'll be in business. A Ripcord drop away would be a good replacement.

:cheers:

I paid forthy five cents to get a vane and a feather re-done a coupla hours ago.....all done while I shot. I figure that is money well spent!

:cheers:

The biscuit is a fine hunting rest CP. That's as far as it goes.

Oh yes... DSG.. the dark side.

And you remember me from when I was but a young Annikan!

Hey.. I have no complaints about the biscuit. I have had two bad experiences with launchers at the moment of truth and HAD to do something.. I just love that whisker biscuit when I'm 25' high..

I have 3 bitzenburgers and also use a 4 degree right offset.
You can go right or left offset anywhere from 3-4 degrees. I use the Duravanes and also have a few hundred of the AAE. Now if you use the AAE vanes do not use a cleaning solution on them.

Like DSG said, pitch the bisquit and get a real rest. The Trophy Taker Shaker Hunter is also a great drop rest. I prefer to do my own and not wait on anyone else.

Actually a biscuit would be a perfect fit for a recurve CP. They are both antiques. :D

As far as vaneing your own arrows. If it comes down to cost. You will be WAY ahead to have someone else do it. Ax MoBowman how much he has in each of those Bitz's and you'll see what I mean.

The only thing you gain by doing your own may be some self satisfaction and a little convenience.

DSG, hold onto your chair, $5 each on the Bitz's and I also pick up vanes for about $4 per hundred. Earl at BB's took real good care of me:D. Plus I'am probably doing couple hundred arrows a year.

Doing it myself is what I'am really after that and helping out some buddies. Have my own little shop in the garage:cheers:
