The Bitz has been the recognized standard by which all jigs are compared, for decades.

Yeah. I owned a plastic Bohning and an Arizona EZfletch.

I gave them away and bought a Bitzenburger: Sturdy construction, strong magnets, precision tooling. I was fletching for my daughter's hunter's safety shooting team (12 kids) and it paid for itself many times over.

Seems like the good ole Bitzenburger beats them all hands down.

Default It depends

There are $1000 bow shooters; there are $500 bow shooters.

I'm in the cheaper category and have successfully used a Arizona EZ Fletch that has paid for itself in fifteen years of use. It meets my needs for general practice and hunting.

The only disadvantage is I use aluminum arrows and will have to get an EZ Fletch for carbon arrows if I switch. But after 15 years it won't be a big loss. Did I tell you I'm cheap, too.

I never got into micro measuring my applied vanes. All's I wanted were vanes that shot good and were accurate. And avoid getting charged for putting on vanes.

He asked what was the best, he didn't ask what was the cheapest!
