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.
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 is a lot faster and since you need both bowstring and unstrung bows, you can only make 14 bows per inventory.
This makes stringing bows not very afkable, whereas cutting unstrung bows is afkable. So it’s up to you which method you decide to use, but if you want to make some money and level fast, string is the way to go.
The following are the stringing methods you should use from 55 to 99.
Stringing maple longbows: 194K
Stringing yew longbows: 182K profit per hour
Stringing magic longbows: 225K per hour
When sold the grand exchange you will profit 194K for an hour’s work. 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 its 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.
Hopefully, this has convinced you to start training your fletching. Fletching is a super-fast and profitable skill that should be trained by everyone.
