Snowbee Fly Mate Pedestal Vice - Standard, the Danish design of this premium range of Fly Tying Vices, is second to none. The Vice represents excellent value for money, when you compare the quality and features, with other vices on the market.The Fly Mate Vice is superbly engineered from high quality steel and aircraft aluminium, the jaws are made from high alloy tool steel, which has been specially hardened. The Fly-Mate Vices feature a rotational facility which, combined with the cranked jaws shaft, ensures that when rotated, the shank of the hook turns around its own axis. Parallel clamping of the hook, by means of the 2 jaw clamp screws, ensures secure grip of any hook size from #24 to 8/0. The jaws come with a 5 year warranty.

Available in either desk Clamp style or Pedestal models, an optional extra is a patented ball joint on the vice shaft (All 4 vices are shown in 2nd picture). This gives movement in all planes, which coupled with the 360° rotation facility, allows viewing of the fly from all angles, during tying. This facility can be particularly useful, when tying very small dry flies, or when using Epoxy resin, for Buzzers, or Saltwater flies. The ball joint allows unlimited movement, so the Epoxy can be accurately "run" into the required shape, while it sets.

It doesn't really hold the fly firm against any pressure from the thread, however tight you try to turn it. The jaws dont stand square to the base. I wish I had paid more for something better.

Thank you for your review. This however seems totally out of sync with the other reviews and feedback we have received for the Fly Mate vices, and if contacted could have helped you.
The fly tying vice, is one of our top selling vices but they do need to be set up correctly and once they are after a bit of practice are outstanding value for the money. Snowbee even guarantee for 5 years the jaws on them they are that confident. The instructions will help align the jaws. Any issue, call us.
Ref the jaws not aligning to the base, if you look at the picture, the stem has a bolt, loosen this and your stem will turn and line up.
