Carson® MagniFly™ Lighted Magnifier
Very nice, but could be brighter
This is a good product, and for the price range well made, you could pay much more. It clamps to you tying table or attaches to your vise. The lens is about 4 inches wide and is 2 power with a 4 power spot, great for my older eyes. The only thing that it lacks is the amount of lighting the 3 LED's put out, it would be nice if it put out a bit more light, this is the reason for the 4 star rating. Although the lighting could be better, it get the job done. Well worth the price, and I would recommend it.

Great addition to my fly tying setup. Exactly what I was hoping for in magification and un obtrusive. Works very well attached to vise.

I am a fly tier and I use the magnifly glass for the very small flies I tie.

a real eye saver!
I've been tying the better part of 30 years, and this past fall I finally acknowledged the numbers on my birth certificate and bought this excellent magnifying lamp. With my new rotary vise I'm tying fairly regularly down to size 18 or so, and after a few, my peepers are pretty tired. The new lamp allows me to increase my hours at the vise and also encourages me to attempt nymph and midge sizes that I would never have thought possible with these old eyes! An excellent tool at an excellent price. Clamped on your tying bench or your vise you'll have no more excuses!
