Wavey fletching

I have some arrows that the fletching is starting to look wavey. I'm sure you all know what I mean. I have two questions: How can I make them strait again without just re-fletching the arrow? How much does this wave affect the flight if any? I'm just trying to save my self some money if possible.

Yep. After I posted this topic, I started thinking. I Figured if you heat up plastic it will bend and shape so I took a lighter and heated the flethcing up just enough to shape them again, and put each one in between two cd cases and put some pressure on it for a few seconds. Straightend them out almost perfectly. I shot them a little while later and they, to be honest, seemed like they flew better after that than they did before. What do you guys think? Does it sound like its ok to do to the rest of my wavey arrows? Any way I can better this experiment?
were do i get a jig and how much are they?
