      which model or setup for wood arrows?

      Bitzenburger website suggest model 1006 for traditional archer.

      All websites i search really dont go by Bitzenburger model #…

      Obviously I’m making this harder to decide on which model.

      The only Bitzenburger models I’m aware of are the current, common ones that have the dial adjustments and an older   one             that has a cam type adjustment sticking out the side. Both are excellent fletching jigs.

      The only issue that I’ve ever had is when using 11/32nd nocks, they didn’t fit all of the way into the nock indexer.  Removing the indexer and a few minutes with a Dremel tool to open up the hole in the frame solved that problem.

      Again, excellent fletching jigs. For some reason I don’t fully understand, I own 5 of the ‘dial’ models and 2 of the ‘cam’ models.  I’ve also collected a variety of the clamps. Right wing, left wing, & straight.

      I’ve also made up a few sets of ‘Masters’ ……….. These are short sections of shaft painted white with a pencil line scribed along the shaft using the clamp for a guide.    This way, if I want to go from helical to straight fletch and back again, I have a reference to go by.

      Gotta love wood arrows !!!!

      What Richard said…..I have an “old” bitzenberger that works fine.

      I would go with the company recommendation.  They know best what they make them for ….

      A trip to eBay …..’bitzenburger’….  shows quite a few old & new models new & used at a variety of prices.

      If you can find one at a decent price, I would suggest getting a whole set of clamps; left, right & straight.
