Snowbee Fly Mate Pedestal Vice - Ball Joint, 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.

Vice is very study, reasonably easy to set up. Looking forward to tying some flies on using the 360 option. Old vice never had these facilities, very basic.

There is another review on here which appears a little harsh. Only 1 star awarded, however there is an element I agree with, and that is that the rotary mechanism seems inadequate. I like the vice; it is small and quite easy to work with, until you want to use the rotary feature exclusively - such as when using resins, where I find it preferable to be freely and smoothly rotating during material build up but lacking when I want to lock it for head finishing etc. Nice vice overall, quite pleased.

Ball joint just a wee bit too mobile!

Excellent once assembled and lubricated
Assembly advice had to be sought from Troutcatchers because the instructions were an old version in a confusing translation.

The ball joint on this version of the vice initially caused me concern but having spoken with Nick at Troutcatchers I realised what I was doing wrong and I am now completely satisfied.

I have been astonished at the care and concern shown by Troutcatchers during my shopping experience and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

There are some things you just cannot put a price.

Thanks again to Troutcatchers!
