More than just an affordable vise, the Terra Rotary Vise is perfect for beginners and expert fly tiers alike. Fully rotatable and designed with hardened steel jaws, this vise has an extra-large c-clamp which lets tiers set-up and work almost anywhere. Plus, the vise includes a very handy bobbin cradle.

Decent first vice for beginner I bought this based on price and the amount of flies I tie. I don't tie a lot, and $100 was a little high for the amount that I tie. If you get this, take it apart and lube the rotary mechanism. I put a number 111 o-ring between the rotary knob and tension nut to keep consistent pressure on the rotary. Once lubing everything and making sure every was aligned and tightened, it worked great. The jaws hold well and after adding a spring clamp on the main shaft to support the bobbin holder, (that way it swings full 360 with out having to adjust the height), it works very well. The c-clamp is solid and grips well. It looks wide enough to clamp to a park bench or picnic table as well. I would recommend this to another beginner tier, but I can see moving up in vises sooner than later. December 14, 2014
Get what you pay for There are pros and cons with going with a vise at this price point. I enjoy tying my own flies but I couldn't see spending $200 on a nice rotary vise but I've been tying with a beginner vise and wanted to try something with the rotary functionality. When I bought this vise, I really wasn't expecting much out of it. After tying a few flies on the vise, I have to say, I got what I expected. The rotary functionality is not what you'd expect out of a high end vise, but is exactly what you'd expect for this price point. It works, but there are a few issues. For one, the nut that tightens the post when rotating the flies will either loosen or tighten as you turn. If the post gets too loose, you'll notice that you get a lot of movement vertically when rotating the fly. It seems as though the horizontal post doesn't quite fit as well as you'd think it should. There's also an issue with movement in the jaws. They'll hold your flies just file, but you'll get a bit of wiggle where the jaws are attached to the vise. Other than the issues I've pointed out, it seems to work half way decent for someone looking for a rotary vise without wanting to spend hundreds of dollars. If your budget can handle spending a bit more for a better quality vise, I would highly recommend spending more on something better. If not, this vise will do. Just don't expect it to be the same quality as a high end vise. December 26, 2014
30 seconds and its good clamps down well on a variety of hook sizes. the rotary part was terrible until i grabbed a bit of lube and greased up the contact points of the nut and the rotary housing, and the point where the rotary housing connects to the nut on the right of it. After using it without the lube, if you loosen these two nuts, you will see the points of contact, just grease those up a little and the rotary works great! good price for it too December 28, 2013

You can get an extension, you can also get midge jaws and saltwater jaws for smaller/bigger hooks. The midge jaws hold up to like size 26 hooks and the saltwater jaws up to 6/0. The jaws that come with it hold from size 22 up to size 2.

A: 
Not certain of the origin of the vise itself. I saw that the base was made in India.
I'm glad we can obtain items from someplace other than the eastern world.

A: 
By adjusting the screw which is usually mounted in front of the lever to trighten down the vise, one can adjust the prongs to hold any size hook for tying use. I don't think it may open up to a large 7/0 Shark hook. That size is probably out of the range of the use intended.

A: 
Make sure you seat the hooks deep into the jaws; however, this vise is probably too light to tie flies larger than a size 2-4.
