First thought:  Looks like a kludge assembled from parts off an office chair

 

Second thought:  Might be the specialized vise some are after for making big jigs and bucktails

 

Overall:  I don't see this as being a hit among fly tyers; but, nonetheless, kudos to Peak for bringing a new product to market.

If that knob and screw tightens a j-hook, then I could see where this will hold very large hooks.  I could see the jig tiers liking this.

If you look at them on their website, you will see how they hold the hook. They also tell you they are for the largest hooks you can find. So yes it is a specialty vise for tying the largest of flies.

specialty product for sure. i would have no use for it or the vise

 

at what size hook do materials no longer become proportional 


Fly tyers sure have a way at making things difficult

 

Why do you look at a persons profile after they make a post?

For a "fly" ... the largest hook would be determined by what can be thrown.  But for any other lure type, you could tie with nylon rope if you wanted to.  If your casting it with conventional gear, there'd be fewer limits.

Again, I say, this vise would be more for jig tiers than for fly tiers.

From their website:

 

With the growing popularity of large fresh and 
saltwater predator flies, sharks, offshore flies and jigs 
for halibut, grouper, lake trout and other species - 
PEAK Fishing has received many requests for a vise 
that would hold the largest hooks on the market.


PEAK’s engineering team has tackled the problem and 
come up with a unique and innovative  new solution 
for securing oversize hooks and resisting the e
xtreme 
pulling force exerted on long shank hooks when using 
high tensile strength tying threads.

The solution is PEAK’s Large Iron Retention System 
(LIRS) incorporated in t
he introductory product of our 
new line
, the Jurassic Series.  While the application of 
this technology is new, these products are built large 
and tough like the dinosaurs that ruled the Jurassic 
Period.  Our one-of-a-kind drawbar retainer in the 
Magnum product has a .200 wide slot to hold far 
larger hooks than any other device we know to be 
available for tiers.

As with all PEAK Fishing products, we thought 
through the details of the Jurassic Series to develop a 
set of products to provide a durable, economical and 
functional series of tools to address your most extreme 
fly or jig tying needs!


*Lifetime warranty against defects in material or 
workmanship*

 

•  Captures and retains hooks more positively than conventional vises which rely on friction to clamp hooks between 2 parallel faces.

•  360 degree rotation for access to all sides of your fly or jig.
•  Pivoting head to adjust to various hook bend designs.
•  Manufactured from Stainless Steel, CRS, Tool Steel and Brass for maximum durability.
•  Hardened Draw Bar and Hook Nest.
•  Fast, easy, positive adjustments.
•  Durable powder coated Pedestal Base.
•  Large Pedestal Base for maximum stability  Includes mounting holes for bolting to a bench and integral hook/material pocket.
•  Pedestal Base includes two Accessory Post mounting holes for accessories such as the PEAK Waste Catcher, PEAK Tying Light, 
PEAK Tool Post Caddy and more.

Good idea IMO. There does appear to be more & more folks tying bigger flies. Anyone find a retail price for this?

 

I agree with Mike too, that it would make a great vise for tying big jigs.
