Fletching arrows yourself means you get your arrows exactly the way you want them. Roy Keefer is picky about his equipment. That is why he chose the Arrow Fletcher from Goat Tuff. Besides, it’s fun.
The basic device is a cable system which attaches to the limbs on your bow. As you turn the jack screw it shortens the cable and gently pulls the bow limbs inward releasing pressure as it goes. Once you have the bow relaxed, you can install a peep sight or change the strings.

If you’re like me when you get a new bow you have to install the arrow rest, stabilizer, sight, peep, string loop and quiver. This exercise is fun but it can be a pain. The R.A.K. system eliminates this often frustrating experience. This bow is ready to use, shoot and kill.
