This vise was one of the first true rotary vises to break the $100 price barrier, and has won a loyal following. Most parts of the vise are made of molded Delrin resin, a very strong, lightweight material that makes the vise easy to carry and store. The steel jaws hold hooks ranging from size 28 up to 2/0 securely. The vise stem has a diameter of 10mm (0.393") and is adjustable up to a full 6 1/2" and has a C-clamp base. A bobbin rest and instruction DVD are included.

A Great Rotary Vise For The Money
Reviewer: A viewer from Augusta, AR US
I am fairly new to fly tying, but I have used a couple of rotary vises before. Once was at a friend's house and once in my fly tying class. Each of the other vises were seperate brands. Of course both of the other vises were also more expensive as well.
The Danvise was recommended to me on the Fly Tying Forum. I was in the market for a good vise and I wanted something that was a rotary vise. Since my budget didn't allow me to purchase a vise over $100.00 the Danvise was in my price range.
I ordered the vise from J. Stockard's. The vise came in a timely manner and was packaged very nicely. I checked the vise out and found it to be in great working order.
After having used the vise now for a couple of weeks I have come to appreciate it's abilities. It will do everything the ads says it will. For the price it will run right along with the other two vises I have used.
If you are looking for a rotary vise and don't want to spend over $100.00 this is the vise I would recommend. Even if you have the money to spend, the vise is still a great buy.
I would highly recommend this vise to anyone.
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.

Bought the danvise 2-3 months back and indeed it is really great but surely a genuine buyer will ask where are the imperfections?
(i) When adjusted high, the 'stem' tends to be a bit flexible when strength is applied while tying.
(ii) Not enough room space to manoeuver at the tail of the fly.
If you can live with the above, then it becomes perfect.
Danvise great for beginners!

I have three Danvises: 1) clamped to my tying table 2) packed for traveling 3) for instructional use ... I just ordered 2 more for use in fly tying classes. Cabela's base and garbage bag are OK ... the latter is drill out to fit the Danvise. I also give these mod. bags to beginners. True rotary and easy on pocket book.
