Lancaster and Kustom King both give good advice over the phone if you need it.

Is fletching your own arrows really this easy?


if so are those the only things you need to get into it...about 5 of my arrows need refletching so i was thinking i could do it...

Yes it is that easy. Might take a couple tries to get the jig set right but not much to it. You need to buy a sraight, right, or left helical jig depending on how you want to do them. For hunting I use a right helical but for target I use a straight jig offset a couple degrees.

Targeteers has everything you need. I use 2" blazers all the time. Use AAE fast set gel (Rob has it)and make sure the shafts are clean.Some guys wipe them with denatured alcohol, I just wipe them down with a wet rag and never had any problems..... Blazers stick great on wraps.

Use AAE fast set gel
+1
Of all the glues I've used the AAE fast set gel has worked the best. There are several types of wraps out there and some of them are prone to issues with some glues. For example bohning wraps when used with any quick set (super glue type of glue) the glue eats through the wrap and the vane will come off in mid air with part of the wrap melted to it. I learned that the hard way. The wraps I've had the best luck with are by onestringer. I get most of my fletching supplies online as it always seems like the shops I go to are missing something I need and the prices are usually way better online even with shipping charges.
