Anyone fletch their own arrows?

Postby halebp » Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:08 am

I just went up to Cabela's about a week ago and got a fletching jig for my old arrows.  I got a Bohning fletching jig for straight fletches, as well as some Bohning Blazer 2" vanes.  These are the vanes the guy recommended for what I shoot, but was wondering what everyone thought - what you shoot; or if this is a good setup.  I shoot a Martin Tracer Left Handed bow, 75% letoff (I think), 60# draw, 30" Draw length.  My current rest is a Whisker Biscuit, but am going to switch to a drop away after season.  My current arrows are Easton St Epic arrows (slim carbon, currently 4" vanes, some offset), but I might be interested in buying blank shafts instead of re-fletching if anyone has suggestions.
 
Also, what does everyone think about the vanes - short or long? helical, straight, or offset? plastic or feather?  Keep in mind for a high fps, compound bow.
