These are pretty simple. I replaced the white nocks on some of them with pink.

Have been fletching my own for years. Get a Bitztenberger jig when you start, it will last forever. Here are a couple of my arrows.........

I have been fletching my own arrows for about 25 years now . The Bitzenburger jig is one of the best investments I have made .

I have been having great fun and great luck doing my own for about 6 months now. It is great not having to go to the proshop just to get some arrows fletched.

I'd take some pic of the hunting arrows I jsut made, but I am in the outer banks right now and I didn't have room for my bow dang.

Radar that set up is SWEET. What rest do you shoot?

Does it matter what helical you go with, RIght or Left? It seems like if you are right handed it would have to be right but i dont know....thats why im asking!!!

I do my own. I have to agree with Radar, Bitzeberger jig is a good investment. Also have had good results using Extreme shrink fletch.

I use a WB rest on two of my hunting bows . I use RH helical . I doesn't make much of a difference , just as long as all of the arrows are fletched the same .

I have a Jo Jan fletching jig. If I use a right helical, don't I have to order the right wing feathers?
