Yup, cut, fletch, inserts, all that stuff. I have fletch A.D.D. so I change them all the time, and doing it myself is about the only way that's gonna happen. It's easy, and WAY cheaper than paying someone to do it, especially with all the scraping to be done.

Fletched my own for many years until I found shrink fletch. I gotta say I really like the stuff and it's such a time saver. Now my poor JoJan multifletcher just sits there gathering dust.

Just put the shrink fletch on my arrows. They seem to work pretty good. A friend of mine has been using them for a few years. He's never had a problem. So far so good for me too.

I fletch my own most of the time. Its just another way for me to connect with my hunting...knowing I fletched and wrapped and practiced and that I put a lot of effort into the hunt.

I've never had anyone fletch my own arrows in 40 plus years of archery, but I do have a bow shop in my house.

I've been cutting and fletching my own arrows for 5-6 years now.
I love doing it!
