I purchased this vise 6 years ago to ty better flies it has become my goto vise for any size fly I wish to ty, I have not had one problem with this excellent piece of equipment, this guy is extremely easy to use, loading a hook into the vise is so simple and it is a rotary, if you are tying muddlers this feature is really handy, I would have purchased a Regal but this vise saved me around $210 I really appreciate that,it left me with extra bucks to buy fly tying material and build a fly rod,when I purchased this vise I did not think it would last very long to my suprise it has, this vise is an absolute best buy and the quality is beyond reproach.
I've had the vise now for about a month and absolutely love it! I tie mostly saltwater patterns using #4-1/0 hooks and this fella has a great pair of jaws that holds the hook tight and never budges! I highly recommend this vise to tiers on a budget or just starting out. It may not be a true rotary vise but I have found myself enjoying the fact that I don't have to remove the hook and flip the hook when tying patterns like a clouser, just spin the vise and your tying again!.....all in all it's one hell of a deal!!!!
I received this vise as a gift from my wife. Tying has been a pleasure ever since. I find the design to very good and tough. I recommend this vise for every novice tier.
i know this vise is cheap in price but i wanted another vise that was like a regal but i couldn't afford the price so i took a chance and ordered this vise and i have to say it's Great! i have a Anvil Apex rotary that i just love,also a thompson basic that i use up at the cottage for a quick fix tying vise. But i gotta tell you, this rotary is easy to grip and holds the hooks tight. Just a quick pull of the handle and you can make hook adjustments. Look, its not a Regal but if you don't have alot to spend on a vise its a prefectly good upgrade. the vise is made in india and seems to be buildt better than the ones buildt in china. i would recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade from a basic tying kit vise.
I have had this vise for 4+ years and the thing performs as it did new. Holds hooks of all sizes good. I tie 20s to large streamer hooks and I must say I love this vise.
It is a good solid vise for all experience levels. I give it 5 stars for what it is and the price.
