Reviewer: A viewer from Missoula, MT US
I don't tie flies larger than size 8, so this review is for the midge jaws, not the monster jaws. Although the default jaws will work for almost most of your typical trout fly tying, but once you approach size 18 and smaller, the default jaws are a little bulky to really get around the fly. The midge jaw will mostly solve that problem for you. They're small enough to give you access, although I do kind of wish the tips was more of a pin point than a flat face. My one complaint is that I wish the midge jaws were engineered for "extended use" up to size 12 or 14, instead of the "recommended" size 18 or smaller. If so, these would be on my vise almost full time. I find it moderately inconvenient to change out the jaws when I want to tie the odd size 20 fly, simply because I find the default jaw too bulky for that size. Other than that, the Peak jaws are well constructed and hold the hook in solid, with only minor adjustments to the tension.

Some what new to tying and was ready to move from larger flies to nymphs and midges so got the Midge Peak Jaws. Easy and quick to change out, and clamps the 18 and smaller hooks very tightly. Jaw head is small and not in the way of tying. Should last a lifetime.
