Solid performance. Precision made from machined aluminum. The locking lever snaps into place and holds hooks very well from little trout flies to extra-large saltwater flies. The rotation housing is smooth and solid. The pedestal model is heavy and stable. The clamp model is large and will attach to picnic tables, etc. The simple adjustments on it make it easy for fly tiers with small and large hands alike to be able to tie with ease. The best room on a rotary vice we have seen. There are a lot of quality accessories available.
