I ordered mine when I was at Somerset in 2010 (two years ago)...it was there that Alberto for the first time 'used' this vise !
After two years of 'using' it...it became my BEST 'friend' (and this right from the start I used this vise)
For big flies it's a jewel ...it's holds marvellously any hooks (big hooks)...and they vise does all what I ask from 'it'...
The vise comes also with 'ONE' jawclam...wich YOU can use for smaller flies...but but but I must admit that there are 'far better' vises for tying MINI flies (the reason why I changed from my Marc Petit Jean vise at that time to the Trex laid in the fact that the 'Swiss' vise didn't holded big artisinal salmon hooks)...
psttttttttt but as said I tie easely my wets and some flymphs and dries also on my T rex vise...but again there are better vises for the realy small stuff to tie
I know besides the names my 'best' friend JIM gifted with as members who are using with good result such a Trex vise (also JEFF DICKEY has one aswell BRUNO PIMPANINI from France !)
