This is an excellent first vise for the beginner to fly tying. It certainly gets the job done, and alleviates a big portion of the beginning cost for getting started in the hobby. After a while, though, you will definatly want to upgrade to a more adjustable, more feature-filled vise.
I used these for a fly tying class with children ages 10-13. The vice was somewhat cumbersome to use. The most difficulty the children had was getting everything tightened down well. The only design flaw I noticed was that the post rocks back and forth as you tie. It doesn't get supported enough to keep steady. It served its purpose, and didn't get in the way of us tying lots of flies, though. I would buy them again.
I just started tying and this vise works, does it rotate? no, does it have a nice base? no but what it is is one of the best starter vises I have come across for an amazing price. I highly recommend this vice for any beginner.
