We’ve already covered the fastest routes to 99 fletching in our osrs fletching guide, now it’s time to cover some of the profitable money-making methods with fletching.
How To Make Money With Fletching: Stringing Bows
Fletching doesn’t really become profitable until level 55. Before that, you will lose a tiny amount of money. We’re talking about 30K or so if you decide to use the cutting unstrung bow method of our fletching guide.
As fletching is a really fast skill, getting to 55 fletching with even the slowest and cheapest method can be done in as little as 2.5 hours.
Stringing bows is the best way to make money with fletching and still receive a high experience rate, even higher than cutting unstrung bows. However, stringing goes a lot faster and since you need both bowstring and unstrung bows, you can only make 14 bows per inventory.
This means you need to bank a lot more, making stringing much less AFKable than cutting bows.
So it’s up to you which method you decide to use, but if you want to make some money and level fast, stringing is the way to go.
The following are the stringing methods you should use from 55 to 99.
Stringing maple longbows: 320K Profit Per Hour
Stringing Maple Longbows is currently a very good Fletching money maker. It only requires 55 fletching but can make up to 320k GP per hour provided you have decent clicks.
Stringing yew longbows: 250K profit per hour
Stringing Yew Longbows is slightly less profitable than stringing Maple Longbows at the moment but you do get around 40k extra exp per hour.
Stringing magic longbows: 390K Profit per hour
And finally, stringing Magic Longbows is the best fletching money maker in the game. This does require 85 fletching but this is definitely achievable considering you would also be making good money from maple and yew longbows on your way.
Stringing Magic Longbows for 1 hour will profit you 390K when sold to the grand exchange. Doing this method all the way to 99 fletching, you would need to string 53,420 Magic longbows (u) for a total profit of 7.5 million GP. This should take about 22 hours.
Additionally, players can also choose to high-alch them afterward. This will result in an extra 80K magic experience per hour.
The alching price for magic longbows tends to fluctuate but it’s usually either a couple of coins profit or a couple of coins in loss so for the extra magic experience it’s definitely worth it.
Alternative Fletching Money makers
Stringing bows is the most profitable way to make money with fletching. But it is more click-intensive than cutting bows. For the lazy ones among us, who prefer a more AFKable fletching method, you can cut bows instead.
Below are the two ways you can make money with AFK fletching.
AFK Fletching Money Makers
|Fletching Method||Fletching Lvl||Profit/hr|
|Fletching unstrung Maple Longbows||55||110k/hr|
|Fletching unstrung Yew Longbows||70||110k/hr|
Fletching Money Making with Bolts
Alternatively, players can also fletch bolts. This is SUPER click-intensive but if you are a freak, you can make REALLY good money with this method. Ruby Bolts currently give the best profit at 350k/hr.
Making bolts is easy, just have adamant bolts + ruby (or diamond) bolt tips in your inventory and use one on the other. Now do it in rapid succession.
TIP: making bolts is more comfortable (and faster) on OSRS Mobile than using a mouse
|Fletching Method||Fletching Lvl||Profit/hr||Items|
|Fletching Ruby Bolts||63||350k/hr||Adamant bolts + ruby bolt tips|
|Fletching Diamond Bolts||65||320k/hr||Adamant bolts + diamond bolt tips|
Hopefully, this Fletching Money Making Guide has convinced you to start training your fletching.
Fletching is a super-fast and profitable skill that should be trained by everyone.
