    I find building arrows peaceful. I just wish I could afford to buy all the shafts I want to try out :mad:

    I do my own, because I fletch mine with feathers, and most arrows don’t come with feathers, plus it’s cheaper doing it yourself.

    I do mine all by myself except cutting (just can’t see buying an arrow saw to cut maybe 1 dz arrows a year). I found it to be very rewarding when you shoot a deer or other animal, and you took all that time to make the arrows yourself [=}=]

    It is relaxing and peacefull! I used to build arrows for our shop a long long long long time ago. It is fun and there isnt much to it once you have your jigs set and GOOD glue. I must say saunders npv is the best arrow glue for feathers, blazers or whatever. You can even dip your own arrows. Bitzenbergers are the best jigs but if your on a budget you can get a martin jig for about 39.00. They are plastic but they work well. If you are fletching feathers you need to let your clamps sit longer than on blazers or quickspins. :) If you buy your shafts from a pro shop they usually will cut them down for you at no cost. Good Luck :)

    I’ve only ever bought one dozen pre-assembled. Bought my first Bitz the day after I picked them up and half the feathers were falling off. Never looked back. [=}=]
