Does what it's supposed to do
Reviewer: A viewer from Kettering, OH US
I bought this vice to replace my first vice (another cheap one off of e-bay)There's definitely no frills, bells, or whistles on this vice, but it is functional. It can be a little tricky adjusting the jaws for different size hooks, but nothing too hard.
If you're new to tying, or need a cheap travel vise, or are teaching tying classes, this is an excellent choice. Well worth the few bucks. Seems to be of sturdy construction and i don't see it breaking anytime soon.If you tie frequently i would save up the money for a nicer one. Or do like i am, get this to hold you over until you can afford a good rotary vise.
Great starter vise

I will be honest in saying I was a little skeptical purchasing a vise of this price. This thing is actually pretty durable and does what its supposed to do. It will definitely become part of my travel set when I eventually upgrade.
Good beginner vise
Reviewer: A viewer from Litchfield, NH US
I'm new to fly tying and before spending $100+ on a "real" vise, i got this. They were in stock as of 19 July 10 when I ordered mine. I had to put together the cam lever since it came either disassembled or had come apart during shipping. Otherwise, a good vise. Just make sure your bench has a lip for the C-clamp!
To teach the kid

I bought t his vise so the kid could have something to tie on. This vise does the trick. It holds the hooks great no slipping or problems at all. Easily adjustable and sturdy C clamp. Looking for a back up? Don't want the kids messing with the HMH? Grab this. Great value at a great price.

I learned to tie on this vise over 30 years ago. In fact, I still use the very same vise from time-to-time -- 30 years later. This is a great vise for a beginner or occasional tier. I use it as a travel vise. It takes a little adjusting to get the jaws set up for the hook size that you are tying, but once it is set it does a good job of keeping the hook secure.
