  • Q:

    I asked a question about where to get the removable plate for a 4 fletch design. Your rep responded that there is no plate you adjust the set screw. I am just verifying this as the product description states " comes with interchangeable discs for 3 or 4 fletch".

      You will have to go throw martin to get the disc for that fletcher we do not carry them.

  • Q:

    Can I order a replacement plate from you guys? I seem to have
    lost the 4 fletching plate.

      A:

      There is no plate for doing a 4 fletch all you have to do is adjust the set screws do a 4 fletch. The plate I think your referring to is for the magnet and that is to protect it when it is not being used.

  • Q:

    Can you tell me whether I should purchase a right-wing or left-wing fletching jig. I shoot right handed. My understanding is I would buy a left-wing jig. Is that correct? Appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you.

      A:

      It depends on the type of feathers you will be using: you need a left wing jig for left wing feathers, and a right wing jig for right wing feathers. Whether you are right or left-handed does not make a difference; any archer can use either left or right winged feathers. Personally, I use left wing. Just as long as you have the corresponding jig and feathers, you will be fine.

      It does not matter I have shot both could tell no difference so it's your preference. I currently shoot right handed with right helix jig and shoot fine.. Only thing I get is when goto range how nice arrows look. (grin) nothing like making your own

      A:

      The right and left feathers modify which direction the arrows spin after
      they are released. I purchased the left-wing jig for the left-wing feathers
      and also shoot right handed. So far it has worked well. It will take a few
      tries to get the jig set up effectively. I'd also suggest buying the
      fletching tape, as it holds the feathers on very well. I hope this helps
      you in your decision.

      A:

      It actually doesn't matter which one you go with. I'm right handed and I
      use right wing fletching. I've heard of people doing the opposite as well
      though. It seems like it's more preferance than anything else.

      A:

      It will be personal preference which one you choose. Neither orientation will help you to get better arrow flight.

  • Q:

    Hello, can it do a "X" style four feathered fletch or only the "+" style or both?
    Asked on 4/1/2012 by Anonymous

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I am not entirely sure what you are referring to with the X style and the + style. With 4 fletch there is a 90° and there is a 75° by 105°. The Martin Jig is only capable of doing the 90°. If you would like the option to do both you would need either a Bitzenburger or a BPE Pro Fletcher.

  • Q:

    I am new to archery and I need to buy a fletching jig. I don't know which J-8 model I need, left,right or straight. Anyways, left,right and straight, does that refer to just the clamp that comes with the base or the base itself. If I get the "straight" will this work with either left or right feathers? And when buying feathers should I specify what J-8 model I have in terms of left,right or straight. Thanks. Oh, one more thing, once I know what to buy or order, where do I find the glue(fletchtight) so I can include it too? Thanks again. Sorry,but just one more question. Does this J-8 jig allow for any 2 to 3 degrees ofsetting?

      A:

      You can shoot left, right, or straight, just do not mix the different wings on the same arrow. Left wing is still the most popular. The clamp is what determines left, right, or straight, the base is the same for all. If you get Straight, you can use Left or Right Wing feathers with it. You can adjust for up to a 15 degree offset.

  • Q:

    I shoot Kyudo. I want to replace feathers on my arrows, one arrow has right wing feathers, the other arrow has left wing feathers. What is the maximum feather length this jig will set? Does this jig work with bamboo arrows or do I need to buy special adapters for it to do bamboo arrows and left and right feathers?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You will be able to do at least a 6" feather with this jig. You will not have a problem with bamboo arrows.

    Will this work well with blazer 2 inch vanes?

      Yes this jig will work with 2'' Vanes.

      A:

      I use feathers, not vanes. However, I see no reason why it would not work great for your 2 inch vanes, and maybe easier than with my 5 inch feathers - a little easier to align the vane to the shaft.
