I purchased this vice as my first ever! Nice to have a rotary vise to work with. The extension arm is great! although ive never used the regular. I don't enjoy the table clamp much as i cant a heck of a lot of bite on my tying table but its never slipped yet. Lots of plastic in this unit but i don't see any weak areas. For a first vise, defiantly worth it!

This vise is a solid value and I am very happy with the purchase. That said, the polymer body takes a little getting used to as it feels a little cheap. Depending on the amount of pressure you apply when tying, you can feel the slight bend...especially with the extension arm. After you get working on it, you realize it is strong and very light. I did consider the HMH Spartan and feel I will eventually upgrade to a machined steel vise, which is just my personal preference. I have no doubt the Danvise would last a lifetime if it needed to. Also, the extension arm is a must!
What a fantastic rotary vise!

I purchased this for my husband and he is delighted with his new vise. It seemed a perfect match, he is from Denmark and so is the vise. It is very lightweight but has ALL the features of the more expensive vises. I ordered a Peak vise for myself but I think the Danvise is easier to use (especially with the hook adjusting). You can order a pedestal base for this online if you want one. We did. It is VERY reasonably priced and even comes with a handy DVD that explains all about how to use the rotary and other features.
You can't go wrong with purchasing this vise. It is a great buy and a great vise. J. Stockard was a great company to deal with. We got the vise in a very short time. Highly recommend.
Best and lightest vise I've every owned!

This vise is made out a tough heavy duty phenolic material. I've been using this type of material in military applications for it's light weight and durability for years and it lasts. This vise completely surprised me with it's versatility. It spins, it hold hooks tight when fitted properly, it's totally adjustable for the smallest trout hook to big game saltwater flies. It's easy to pack and easy to set up anywhere. I don't go anywhere without it and recommend it always to everyone.

As a novice tyier this vise has everything I need and has been a good investment. I would have given it 5 stars but I found the extension arm not to have a very solid feel and ended up removing it. I read reviews elsewhere that people had problems adjusting the jaws or complaining that the jaws did not hold small hooks firmly -- absolutely no problems here.
