Great beginner rotry vise
This was my 2nd vise, my first rotary vise and have been using it for three years trouble free. I have read the reviews and some are pretty harsh, but then again they used vise grips or a hammer or abused or misused the vise. The clamps are great. The three jaws that come with it offer a wide range of options. I tie tube flies and it holds the tube fly adpter great. I tie trout flies and it works great with the full range of hooks I use. I tie a lot of jig heads for bucktails and saltwater flies. This vise is excellent for larger hooks and jig heads. The rotory fuctions is really nice, just wish I could adjust it to keep the hook or tube centered, but it's not what is made to do that. I am planning on purchasing an adjustable offset rotory vise this week and will keep this vise as a back up or pass to my son or take in the field with me. I really like it. I would recomend this vise to beginners and intermediate tiers and tell them be nice to it, DON'T abuse it, it will last you a long time.

Great item for the novice fly tier. Provides all the support and movement that may be needed.

ok for a beginner or camp vice
though i have used this vice to tie several hundred flies i have also had several issues. first the washer on the cam bent to the point of uslessness and the jaw pin is bent to the point of no return and finally the jaws are starting to develop a major notch which is really not good for a trout tier. that being said i have tied from size 2 to 22 and could probably go smaller . for 20 bucks what are you really looking for will work to find out if you really want to tie and is useable enought to keep up at a camp with the essentials incase of fly box finding freedom in the creek

i guess you get what you pay for. i bought this in a kit for tying musky bucktails and it broke. i only finished 3 bucktails and it was over starting on the 4th one. i wouldn't consider it a huge loss because it helped me decide and find out i am interested in tying my own bucktails, however the rotation is no good, the clamp does not hold very tight and if you do not adjust the tension perfectly it will break with minimal pressure applied. i would have to say it took about 10 pounds of pressure to break the c-clamp. i would not recommend this to anyone unless you are just trying to figure out if you want to find out for yourself if you like tying your own flies or bucktails. buy an american made one that is over $100 and you should be fine.

The description says it holds a "variety" of hook sizes. I tie mostly bass and saltwater streamers. Will this hold a 3/0 fly? If so it sounds like a great deal. I wish they would be more specific. Thanks!
It opens up pretty good but I cannot say for sure. I fish panfish mostly. I know it works on the walleye hooks I have but most saltwater hooks I have seen are a bit more stout. Try posting on Lake Link. A lot of good fisherman out there.
