I am trying to refletch my Raven arrows, the problem is the Arizona easy Fletch that I have doesn't seat the arrow correctly for height. as the picture shows the Raven vanes are substantially higher up than a black executioner. I have a bittenberger that will work but I was just wondering if there's a way to make the Arizona easy Fletch work. also should I use the offset bitz or straight

I'd get another Arizona and glue in seating stops at the right height.

If you look close there is no room to go higher. I would have to start cutting plastic. Just our luck a proprietary thing from Ravin. LOL

Why not cut the plastic? As long as there's enough meat to work with "have at it"...lol

Go with the bitz, you can mark your clamps for the right amount of set back and adjust your amount of helix or offset. I use sharpie markers on the one I have.

You need the longer arms for the arizona....ones that will fletch a 4 inch vane. Or pull your nocks out,that will gain you some room.

Add a secondary nock extension to raise the shaft higher

Edit: my mistake I thought you wanted to lower the vanes.
There are longer replacement arms that can be modified to allow foe vane placement.

Bitz... is slow as molasses. My Arizona is old as dirt and reaches half way up the arrow...lol. I think it dates back to my Fred Bear Polar LTD and 36", 635gr aluminum arrows!

The jig is only as slow as the drying time. I use a arizona too, but you that is a fixed jig with no adjustment no to mention its sloppy as hell. I guess it just boils down to what you want for your finished product.

They are slow but work so well unless you are doing a lot of arrows at once. I rarely do over 6 at a time. ;)

The setback doesn’t need to be that much to fit in the Ravin trigger housing. Factory fletching is way more than needed.
