Crown Rotating Fly Tying Vise Review

A brass rotating vise for tying flies. This vise is a great deal for the money I paid for it.

A Quick Review of the Crown Rotating Vise—Perhaps the Best Fly Tying Vise in It’s Price Range

In the mail today I received a crown fly tying vise from amazon. So far I am very happy with it’s functionality and features. This inexpensive fly tying vise is a really good deal for the 44$ I spent on it. You will find several knobs on this vise to provide you with various angles for tying flies from about size 18-1/0 or so. Depending on the wire size of the hook you might be able to go much larger. I doubt you would be able to tie flies easily in much smaller than size 18.

This vise has quality hinges and a lot of adjustment.

  • This vise has a lot of adjustment from the vertical height adjustment, to the circular rotating knob on the back.
  • Holds even small hooks very securely
  • Very inexpensive for what it is. A vise with similar features you could easily expect to pay 2x more.
  • Attaches to the table smoothly, easily and securely
  • Well made and durable


  • This vise comes with a layer of grease on it that you will need to wash off with dish soap before any serious amount of fly tying.

Overall, there isn’t really much to complain about with this vise.
Buy the Crown Rotating Vise on Amazon


If you are in the market for a great deal on an inexpensive rotating vise for tying a multitude of fly sizes, this might be the one for you. In this price range there are not a lot of options and you could expect to pay a lot more for any other vise with similar features. The cost of this vise as of March 2015 is $44 on Amazon, making this in my honest opinion the best rotating fly tying vise on the market for the money.
