Designed to "spin" the hook to apply material with the hook shank held in perfect alignment with the axis of rotation, the NORVISE works like a lathe and provides much greater speed, better thread tension control and more precise material placement. As experienced fly tiers know, the revolutionary rotary fly-tying vise by Norvise has advantages over other rotary vises, yielding a lifetime of fly-tying success. Norvise positions the hook on a perfect rotational centerline, allowing the hook to be spun, replacing tiresome hand-over-hand wrapping. Then, with the hook's shank always aligned to the center, the material is "turned" or "spun" onto the hook; this requires less labor time and is a frustration eliminator. Precision ball bearing and heavy brass hubs enable Norvise to work like a spinning wheel for the world's most fluid dubbing, creating perfectly shaped and textured bodies. Working thread, other body materials, and hackles are applied better, faster, and easier than any other method. Made in USA.
This standard Norvise is the most popular and versatile configuration: Standard Size Brass Hubs, Standard Inline Jaws, a matching Thread Post, mounting hardware (for the optional mounting board), Allen wrench, set-up, operating instructions, and an hour-long instructional video by the inventor of the Norvise, Norm Norlander.
