      I’m a newbie to Traditional, finally giving up the training wheels, after only using it a couple of years.

      While using the compound, I found that I really liked the Easton FMJ’s. Problem is, what fletching jig

      would work on these small diameter arrows?

      I shoot a 70’s Bear Grizzly 45#, looking at getting a Bear Montana Longbow. I would like to continue using

      the FMJ’s if possible, but want to switch from Blazer to the Razyrs.

      I have really enjoyed reading through all of the threads on this site. I have learned a LOT, bought

      T.J. Conrad’s “The Traditional Bowhunter’s Handbook”, and am enjoying reading it.

      Great bunch on this site!

      I’ve fletched several different types of the small dia. shafts. I have both the Grayling and Bitenburger fletchers and have never had a problem using them.

      I have used a Jo-jan fetching jig for both carbon and aluminum and had no problems with it.

      I have used the Bitzenburger with great success with the FMJ arrows. Works very well…

      I have a BPE Pro Fletcher and it has a variety of sockets for different diameter shafts. It works just fine. It seems that they all work well enough to make fine arrows. You’ll do quite well. Find a fletcher at a good price and put the saved money into good materials.

      As with anything else, it ain’t the engine, it’s the engineer…. dwcphoto

      Thanks everyone for the help! I’ve only used my brother’s Arizona EZ Fletcher for Aluminum arrows.
