griffin vs. anvil vise

Recommended Posts

Another small tweak that can make a difference and this is related to not being mounted directly onto the main pedestal stem: Tweak the horizontal "stem to vise head assembly" connection distance and start with the vise as snug to the stem as possible. This extra little gap creates a moment arm and can also introduce a bit of tippage into the equation. These are the only things I've really had to do to dial it in.

 

We'll do a video though, good idea.

I'm a little concerned that there's little space behind the hook making it a little cramped for larger flies such as baitfish, shrimp patterns etc. My current vise is a danvise and I'm not impressed with it. There's barely room behind the hook.

I had a danvise, and this one has a LOT more room. I'm tying some very big stuff with no issues. The adjustable material clip is genius because you can slide it back and up for large flies, and forward and down for smaller flies (If you need it). The flies pictured have a Daiichi 2461 4/0 for the back hook and a Lazer Trokar 5/0 spinnerbait hook for the front hook. It had plenty of room.

Thank you for clarifying it. It's one of those vises that can't be tried before purchase since we don't have them in this country.
