White River Fly Shop® Crown Spring Tension Vise
Jaw point broke
While tying flies for an Alaska salmon trip, the jaw point broke ,upon inspection the jaws are made from pot metal (cast iron) and a bubble in the cast located at lever. I did use this several hundred times before it broke, and it did hold hooks very secure. If jaws were made from stainless steel I would pay the extra and order another on.

Broke in the First Month of USe
A month after tying with mine the screw to keep the jaws from rotating stripped. I did not over tighten the screw it just wore out. You can not put a #6 2X Heavy nymph hook in the vice either even if you follow their instructions. Sending it back and buying a better vise. I give it a 2 star because it holds small hooks very firmly.

The vice works great couldn't be happier with it's performance; holds the hook very secure.
Easy to open for almost any size hook.
