I have been fishing/tying for 40 years and always used a smaller beginners type vise,never was an issue until I saw an HMH Spartan at a friends house. I used it once and I ordered one the next day. The biggest differance is the detail and how much easier it is to tie. You don't know what you are missing till you use a finely crafted tool like this, well made, stainless steel, smooth rotation and probably the strongest jaws ever. you get what you pay for!
After tying on a Peak Vise for quite a few years I was looking for a vise w/ less bulk and a cleaner hand position behind the hook. The offset nature of the Peaks and Renzettis are nice but I feel like all of the hardware to get into this position gets in the way.
Queue my purchase of the HMH. At first I was very hesitant about this purchase but once I took it out of the box and tied a simple midge pattern I was hooked. Outstanding vise and outstanding quality. I am looking at this vise to be the last one I purchase and also give to my son - I am only in my late 30's too... that nice of a quality vise.
Also, JS Stockard as usual has great customer support and I literally got this vise in 2 days... Although I have a very nice fly shop within one mile of my house JS always proves worth the patronage...
HMH is sweet!
Before purchasing a new vise, I did a lot of research and decided on the HMH Spartan. The moment I opened the box, I knew I'd made the right decision. The quality of HMH vises are unbeatable. Constructed of precision machined stainless and tool steels with machined brass fittings, this fine instrument will last forever. Still, it is good to know they have an
"unconditional" lifetime warranty. I love the super smooth 360Âº rotary action and the ability to easily change to any of the 3 available jaws (Omni, Micro, Mag) in a matter of seconds. If you are looking for a simple, reliable, professional-quality vise with unsurpassed customer service, look no farther.
I just received this vise in the mail and have been tying on it for a few days, all i can say is that i didnt know what i was missing when i was using the poor quality vise that came in a kit i got a while ago, the full rotary function is helpful, but i don't "rotary tie" at all so it is useful for getting access to the bottom of the fly etc.. Overall this is a great value and a great price and it holds the hook super tight
