Extras To consider
Reviewer: A viewer from Davis, IL US
With so many reviews already written, You do not need my comments on the operation of this vise. It probably may not outperform some of the $3-500 engineering masterpieces in all applications. I give it 4 stars for functionality and another star for economy. There are two things that the other reviews do not mention.
First, with little or no work the vise can easily be reconfigured for four custom applications. The standard configuration works for day to day tying and is convertable to left hand mode. The Midge configuration gives the tyer a standard 45 degree angle non-rotary jaw with access all around the hook. The extension arm configuration provides the room needed for flies with long wings or tails. The "Clouser" configuration provides a parallel jaw if one does a lot of Clousers. While other vises require shaft extensions that cost $50 or more, the Danvise requires drilling just one hole in the coulet.
Second, ever since getting the vise, I have recieved excellent service and advice from Al and Gretchen Beatty the national distributors. They are easily contacted by eMail. The Danvise has stood the test of time.

After reading lots about the Danvise, I decided to order one as a backup. It was exactly as I expected given the reading I had done. It is lightweight, but don't let that tell you that it can't be a great vise. If it were stolen, I would order another without even thinking. Thanks JS!
Danvise light on pocket not on features

Bought a Danvise ... don't understand peoples attitudes towards modern materials.
This is a great tool, easy to set up and very easy to use...as long as you follow the instruction DVD.
It holds very large hooks and very small also.
Such a sturdy piece of equipment, more people should buy one.

This is an excellent value in a vise for someone wanting to get into tying. Hooks hold firm and the rotary feature is appreciated in a vise at this price point. Could use some room back behind the jaws, but they sell an extension arm. After a couple of years, it does have nicks and dings in the jaws, but it is likely due to my not adjusting it effectively when changing hook sizes all the time.
Best Vise for the money...
Reviewer: A viewer from Queensbury, NY US
This is a great vise for all tiers. As a tying instructor I recommend this vise to all new tiers after they know they will continue with the art. For an advanced tier this vise will give years of service and also makes a very light travel vise for trips or seminars. I do recommend the extension arm especially for those with larger hands. There is a little play in some of the connections and I do wish the stem was a bit longer so I don't have to lean over when tying on low tables or with high chairs. Over all the best value I have ever seen and will hold any hook you want.
