Rated 4 out of 5 by bodidley68 not a bad product
ok, guys. this vise is my 1st one. after doing a month of reading reviews, emailing a company or 2 and touching a few different vises. i decided on this one.
i used it for a couple hours and decided to disassemble it and clean it and re-oil it. cleaned with Brakleen (non-chlorinated) used Reel Butter Oil to re-oil.
anyway, back to the vise. put together well. the machining is 'poor' in a few places. mainly on the base. the jaws are a little heavy.
overall, this is a good 1st vise, at least for me. not the cheapest, but couldn't justify $100+ on a 1st vise.

I received this vise in the mail two weeks ago and have tied a few flies on it so far.
Vise seems sturdy and holds a hook very tight.
The rotary function works well and the bobbin holder is a convenient addition.
This is the only vise I have ever used but for the cost I am very pleased.

Jaw head clamping mechanism was poorly machined. Threads were of insufficient length on metal rod for brass nut and brass piece. Threads of both stripped on first attempt to tighten.
Reading other reviews, my problem is fairly common.
BPS engineering and quality departs need to review an fix.
An instruction manual should have been included.

I ordered alot of fly fishing items and only one item was not really desired. But this Vise is by far the best one I have ever owned. It makes things alot easier when it comes to tying. I would recommend this item to all my friends.
