I have tried a couple of Marc Petitjean's tools and have been impressed with the quality and ingenuity of his design.

Does anyone here own, or tried using one of his vises?

Any comments?

At those prices, I think I'll take a pass.

From what I hear they take a lill bit of time to get set up but the quality is top notch.

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

a couple of years ago i was at a fly fishing show and watched a tyer take about 20 minutes trying to set one up. i finally left. too much work for me and the price is too much for my blood.

excellent craftsmanship!

Someone stole my coffee cup. Now I have to go to the police station and look at mug shots.


I was about to tell a joke about time travelling, but you guy's didnt like it.

I have been using the vise for over a year. I love it! It was very easy to set up but Marc gave me a demo
on all the features. Easy to adjust as needed for different hook sizes. Very easy to keep true rotary for different sizes hooks.
Takes about 10 seconds or less for hook size adjustment or rotary adjustment. Very high quality. Fred
