Why don't your fletchers use a magnet?

Our fletchers were designed and engineered to eliminate the use of magnets. The weight of our clamps and the angle which the fletcher stands compliment each other providing a perfect balance to hold the vane/feather to the shaft and give the user a perfect fletching each and every time. The disadvantage of magnets is they allow for the person fletching the arrow to make the mistake of not letting the vane sit correctly on the shaft, therefore not fletching the arrow correctly. We eliminate this flaw and allow the user to not have to worry about making that mistake.

Can I fletch crossbow bolts with your fletcher?

Yes. All you need is one of our regular jigs and buy the number of Crossbow Bolt Adapters you need for your jig and you're ready to go.

Can I use any type of your nock receivers or clamps on any model of your Mono-Fletcher or Multi-Fletcher?

Yes. All nock receivers and clamps can be used on any of our fletchers. This is an added plus for many archers and dealers who need or want to be able to fletch many different ways and use many different fletching, such as straight, right helical, and left helical. You need to buy only one of our jigs to fletch any kind of arrow. This is feature that separates our product from many of our competitors.

Can I fletch carbon arrows with your fletchers?

Yes. All of our fletchers are equipped to handle carbon arrows. This feature, along with many others, is why JoJan's fletchers are top of the line.

When I try to fletch carbon arrows with a helical fletch, either right or left, the vane will not sit on the shaft?

Unfortunately, some carbon arrows are just too small to handle the 11 degree per helix that our helical clamps fletch. In order to still get the helical effect, we recommend you fletch with a straight offset. In order to do this, simply use straight clamps and offset them as much as possible so that the vane still sits on the shaft. This will give you up to a 2 degree offset.

Which fletching is right for you?

There are three types of fletching: Straight, Straight Offset, and Helical. All three configurations work under all circumstances in both tournament and hunting. However, here are some guidelines to take into consideration.
Straight fletching, done by using a straight clamp and no offset, places the vane straight down the center of the shaft. This gives release shooters good clearance when using a shoot-through style rest. Straight fletching works better with target points than it does with broadheads.
Diagonal fletching is accomplished by using a straight clamp and offsetting it which places the vane at an angle across the shaft. Our jigs can accomplish this up to 2°. If you feel more comfortable shooting a straight fletch, when using a broadhead, this is the way to go. Diagonal fletching causes the arrow to rotate faster than a regular straight fletch and will give you more stability with a broadhead. Also, it will still allow you to get good clearance through a shoot-through arrow rest.
Helical fletching is accomplished by using a helical clamp. Helical fletching will get the arrow spinning the fastest and will stabilize the broadhead the best. This does make it harder to get clearance using a shoot-through rest but is highly recommended for broadheads.

Which size fletching should I use?

Choosing the size of the vane you are going to use is like picking what fletching you are going to use, it is totally preference. Now, what you need to consider is that target shooters like to use the smallest size they can that still allow them to achieve stable arrow flight. By using the smallest size, this allows the wind to have a minimal effect on the flight and allow target shooters to shoot longer distances with more accuracy. However, for the bowhunter, longer size fletchings are better to stabilize the broadhead, usually a 4 or 5 inch vane.

If I wanted to use a helical fletching, should I use right or left helical?

You’ve probably heard the tale that if you are right handed, you shoot right wing, and if you are left handed, you shoot left wing. This tale is completely wrong. High-speed photography has shown that the arrow does not even start to spin until the arrow is several feet past the arrow rest. So, to put an old tale to rest, it does not matter whether you are left handed or right handed, as long as you can get clearance, you can use whatever fletching you desire.

Which is better, feather or plastic vanes?

There are advantages and disadvantages to both.

  • Feather Advantages:
    • Feathers are lighter than vanes, thereby making your arrows slightly faster.
    • Feathers are more flexible, thereby reducing incidental contact that the fletching might have with an arrow rest.
  • Vane Advantages:
    • Vanes are slightly heavier than feathers thereby adding weight to an arrow.
    • Vanes are more stable in wet weather environments.
    • Any vane can be used to fletch straight, right or left helicals.
Conclusion: The weight difference is basically negligible and in most cases can be ignored. The real concern should center around likely weather conditions and arrow clearance.
