Flex Neck Magnifier
good for tying midges
I ordered this magnifier to help out my eyes when tying size 22 midges. Works well and the glass is clear an destortion free. The neck will flex and hold position so you can get it at a good angle. My only complaint is that it is a little short so I have to set my vise slightly lower than normal - otherwise it would be a five start item.

Does what it should
This is a magnifying glass on a flexible neck. Not much else to say.
I use it to tie flies and it works well. I occasionally have to move it around, but at this price, I can handle the minor inconvenience.
The base is very heavy given the product's overall size, making it very sturdy. The tray in the base is a nice bonus for holding small tying materials.

'should have returned and spent more.
The magnifier is "OK." The glass seems clear but it is just too short. When the glass is placed in position to see the fly, the neck and base are in the way of tying or it is falling over. I still use it occanssionally, as I would any other Magnifier with a handle. I gave it 2 stars because I guess it fits the price.

Handy little glass
Although I bought the magnifying glass for my wife to make jewelry with it has come in handy for me. She has used it to find thorns in the soles of my feet. Works very well.
