There is nothing that dives me more crazy than a vise that will not hold the hook… and after years of teaching kid and senior citizens I have come to realize just how important my Dyna-King is!
Various sized groves in the jaws allows all Dyna-King vises to clamp down on even the largest saltwater hooks with zero hook slip. The widest grove at the back of the jaw works best for larger ought size hooks, while the next smaller grove is better suited for securing the lower end of the saltwater hook spectrum.
The Dyna-King King Fisher is most affordable high quality vise found anywhere, and is the perfect entry level vise for budget conscious or new tyers. Small yet durable, the Dyna-King King Fisher is made of the finest materials. Notch- lock cam, famous hook holding capability and 360 degree rotation. The Dyna-King King Fisher vise shares the same high quality notched jaw as the Barracuda vises.
When tying at home, I prefer to clap the vise to my bench for added stability, however the pedestal base is very convenient for traveling or tying on less ideal situations.
***All vises are sold WITH BOBBIN HANGERS (typically they are not included from Dyna-King) and your choice of pedestal base or clamp.
