    Great Jig

    I have been fletching for over 20 years. THis jig gives me accurate feather placement at a fraction of the price of a Bitzenberger. Important on a budget!!!

    The instructions that come with the jig give no information on how to use. I had to search the internet to figure out how to set it up and make it work. The magnet also came off even before I used it and I had to expoxy it back on to replace the double sided tape. Not a bad jig once you figure it out.

        Bought this fletching jig about 2 years ago. Finally got around to using it, I am not impressed at all.Metal contacts that stick to magnet do not stay attached,and instructions are not very informative.I think this jig was a waste of money.

            Comments about Martin J-8 Fletching Jig:

            This is a great, simple jig. Very easy to use, and easily adjustable. I'd suggest bolting to a base of some sort, since it's pretty lightweight. But other than that, I don't see much of a reason to spend more, unless you're really doing high volume fletching.

              Comments about Martin J-8 Fletching Jig:

              I had never used a fletching tool before I bought this. It was easy to use after practicing a couple
              of times. I used the fletching tape with it for
              trueflight 5 1/2" feathers and some flu flu feathers. Both worked fine in this this jig.
              And I'll tell you that the fletching tape has held up well throughout practicing and hunting.
              I had no problems.

                      I used this jig with the Bohning fletching glue/tape. It is a snap to fletch arrows with this combination. It might take you 2 or three arrows to really get the feel of it, but after that it is easy as pie. For the average person, this is probably all you need to do your own basic three feather fletching. There is not much to go wrong. Only if you want to get into more technical work would you need the more complicated, adjustable and expensive jigs.

                            I've never fletched an arrow before in my life!
                            30 minuets after I set up the J-8 I had fletch my first dozen!
                            The look and shoot great and it was a snap!
