So when using a straight clamp for the Blitzenburger, does it matter what type of feather you use, LW or RW?

Do you like the Blitzenburger? I have a JoJan multi fletcher and like it for doing 6 arrows at a time.
You can use either LW or RW in the blitzenburger, spouse uses one .

I like the Bitz... but there ain't nothing blitz about it I have two, both RH. I don't have a JoJan to compare it too... and am kinda jealous when I see guys spit out half a dozen arrows in the time it takes me to do 2. But I often refletch in pairs, or make up half a dozen when there is a 2 hour movie on or some sportscast, so it really isn't that big of a deal.

The bitz is much more refined and makes a nicer arrow imo

Never heard of the JoJan. I concur the Bitz is very slow. How long do you guys usually let it sit before removing the clamp? I like to wait atleast 10 minutes....

I use Fletchtite Platinum glue. I wait 20 minutes to remove the clamps. I have 2 JoJan Multifletchers. I can do a dz arrows from start to finish in under 1.5hrs!

old school way is if you are right handed use a slight left offset, with your straight fletch.

A few years ago I decided to give Bohning fletch tape a try. I have not used glue since and have never had a fletching come off. One nice thing about it is there is no waiting. You just apply the tape, seat the quill on the shaft and remove the clamp - couple of dots of Superglue at each end and you're done.

x3. Fletching tape is awesome. My arrows spend plenty of time digging under grass, and scraping through brush and when the feathers are thrashed, the tape is still holding the quill of the feather in place.

I use Bohning fletchtite and although it says 5 minutes... I let it go 10 minutes. I have a timer that I use. Takes about 30 minutes per arrow. I haven't tried the tape yet, but want to give it a try.... someday.

I prefer to use fletching tape myself and just free hand my feathers its way faster that way.

I'll have to try the tape sounds like.
Always have used Duco.
I find the JoJan makes nice arrows if you take the time to get it lined up properly.
I make 4 fletch for my arrows and spouse can use it for 3 fletch as well, makes it very versatile for us. The Bitzenburger is in the emergency repair box that goes on every bow hunt.
