Hi FOLKS, Curious about MULTI-FLETCHING jigs that Y'ALL use for arrows? Any favorites or not worth the trouble? Not sure if JO-JAN is still in business but I see BEAR-PAW and somebody named VADOR ( 3 Rivers) So? Gimme a hint? Also Your favorite glue on fletching wood shafts? GOOD HUNTING & BLESSED BE! Batman

The only one I'm familiar with is the Jo-Jan. Not sure if it's still available but there are plenty of old ones floating around. I picked up another last year for $35 at a shoot. They work well and are pretty much bullet proof.

I've used the Martin J-6 which was very good, but is no longer available.

The Bohning is also top notch.

Back in the 70's we did a multitude of arrows on our Jo-Jan Multifletcher and it always worked well. I had it for years after the shop closed as well....actually I guess a few decades after. I don't remember if I sold it or gave it to someone.

I thought he was asking about jigs that did multiple feathers, not multiple shafts.

No experience with multi-fletchers of any brand, but to answer your glue question, I use Bohning Fletch Tape on all my wood arrows. Never a problem with heat, cold, or moisture.

Hoyt Trihelifletch. No longer made. Try the auction site. Works great.

Mine is a JG Gebhardt Co. Multi Fletcher, but its identical to the jo jan. I`m sure there is a story there, but I dont know it. Its pretty darn old and is still serving me just fine. That Avaslon looks like a winner to me, its about time somebody came back with one. If they come out with helical clamps, it will be the best out there.

Its been a long time since I did some woods, I really like aluminum and Bohning fletch tite is all Ive ever used.

I've been using a six arrow Jojan for 33 years.

If anyone knows any of the history with my JG Gebhardt I sure would like to know. I bought it used for $20 in the 80`s from a lady on my archery league after her husband passed away. I`m using jo jan clamps.

I have two Jo-Jan’s, one helical, one straight. Use the helical mostly. No they are not in business anymore although the website was still working. The instructions are only link working. Glue, either Bohning or NPV glue for carbon and aluminum, Ducco for woods. Although if I was to cap dip with Bohning paints I would use their glue. Maintenance, once in awhile I scrape old glue off clamps. Like any other jig some guys have a learning curve .

I have a 1/2 dozen Bitzs and the Jo Jan multi. Use them both depending on what type of fletch I am gluing down.

Here is the Jo-Jan with a lineup of straight clamps....

Batman. If you are on facebook check out the Traditional Bowhunters, classifieds buy, sell and trade. They had a few fletching jigs on there other day for sale.

There’s a couple of JoJan multi fletchers on Dec Swap and Trade. No picture shown.

My friend Arizona fletcher works well. That being said, it does take a little practice to get it to work well for you. Like anything in life the more you use it the better you will get with it. Like mine, that's all I can say about it. Take care, stay safe, God Bless.

PS. You can fletch one arrow in the time it takes to fletch one feather with a Jo-Jan fletcher.

Many Thanks for INPUT and IDEAS! I need to look into some of the presentations! GOOD HUNTING & BLESSED BE!

I like the multi alot. Ive got right left and straight clamps. I wish I would have bought the single frame back then, sure would like to have one of those.

Lets us know if you get one.

I liked JoJan a LOT until I went to really skinny arrows (3.2mm / 0.125" ID,) then I had trouble with them.

On regular size arrows (1916 aluminum, etc.) they were wonderful. I used for straight/offset/helical with success. While likely not as perfect as others, the speed of using was wonderful.

That said, I still struggle with these skinny skinny arrows. Even slight errors in setup cause failure. I am not sure they are worth the effort. Cannot easily use for hunting, hard to build, etc. etc.

My J.G. Gebhardt Co. Fletcher was a Christmas gift some time around 1972. I don't remember if jojan bought them out or if they went out of business and jojan started making them. They are identical as I have both. Just dug it for making dozens of youth arrows for our youth shoot starting in January. They where located in Queenstown, Maryland.

Hoyt tri heli flex, been using it four decades.

I've owned the Jo-Jan and Gephart for years and felt they worked better with fletch tape than glue. You relied on gravity to keep the feather pressed down on the shaft with glue so I prefer the Bitz to hold the feather down solidly while the glue dries.

I'm a Jo-Jan fan.

The Arizona EZ Fletcher is far and away the easiest to use and the most convenient for travel. It does 3 fletch at one time and will fit in you back pocket. Replacing one or two feathers on an already fletched shaft can be a bit challenging but easy after you get the hang of it.
