Product Description

Peak Rotary Vise

If you are seriously getting into tying flies and wonder how to make your life easier? The PEAK Rotary is the answer!

After reviewing a number of rotary vises, I believe the PEAK is the finest crafted American made fly vise I have ever used. I've used quite a number of them. Out of the box, the vise comes ready to go, to begin your creations. Nearly every aspect of this vise says American quality.

It's smooth as silk. The base appears to be oversized at first, until you use other rotary vises and find that the base rocks when you twirl the rotary - very irritating - not this one, it's rock solid.

This is the vise that started it all, the PEAK Rotary Vise comes with your choice of a pedestal base or a C-Clamp(you can also purchase a C-Clamp model or C-Clamp as an add-on accessory).

Designed for optimal tying efficiency and ease of adjustment and set-up. Materials (including Stainless Steel, Brass, Tool Steel, and Aircraft Hardened and tempered tool steel jaws hold hooks, from size 2 (depending on exact hook wire diameter) down to the smallest you can buy, securely. 

All adjustments are accomplished with minimal effort. The large stable base will hold this vise where you set it, and the non-marking feet protect the surface you set it on. 

The steel base is powder coated in white, for a surface that will stand up and provide a backdrop you can see your materials against. The base also includes an integrated hook/bead pocket with rounded edges for ease of removal, and our accessory post mounting hole (accessory post not included).

The base is designed to pack flat with the vise removed for travel. The rotation resistance adjustment screw provides infinite adjustment and is easily manipulated. 

A height and length adjustable bobbin cradle and pivot mount are supplied with the vise.

Loosening a single set screw allows the vise to be removed for travel, the brass tip on the set screw prevents marring the vise shaft.

  1. Great Vise 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Mar 2014

    I just received my Peak Rotary in the mail, set up was quick and easy and I started tying right away. This is by far the best vise I have ever used. The jaws hold hooks securely from size 18 to a 1. The rotary function is very very smooth. This vise is a pleasure to tie with and I am sure as time goes on it will more than pay for itself, it makes tying streamers a pleasure.

  2. Masterpiece of USA Technology 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2010

    Mark's Comments - This is a masterpiece of USA made technology! When you open the small heavy cardboard box, you are quickly lost with all the diagrams and instruction sheets and small baggies full of cool goodies that took me a while to figure out what they all were. This is a beautiful looking vise, well polished and it feels like quality - no questions there. Ok, a few points for such a nice vise; the packaging seemed weak as it comes in a cardboard box. The packaging just didn't hint at what I found inside. While not included in the base model of the vise, it definitely has one of the most comprehensive lists of optional features I've seen. I enjoyed this vise. It doesn't hurt that I can wave a flag and point out what good ol' made-in-the-USA manufacturing can do when both heart and thought are put into building something!

  3. WOW 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2010

    Joe's Comments - What can I say but "WOW" - this is a great value. The vise is a finely built piece of machinery. I could find very little to criticize. You can select an excellent c-clamp or pedestal base and still come in under $150. The manufacturer says the standard jaws are designed for size 2 to 20 and they are correct. Forcing the standard jaws to hold a 1/0 hook resulted in some vertical slippage under tension - no big bass bugs! Okay, so the guy who designed it told the truth and I tried to make it do more... can I be critical of that? If you want a vise you can live with forever, you're a serious tier, and you don't want to spend a lot of money, you can stop your search here. I don't know how these guys do it - and made in America too!!!

  4. Gold Standard At Price Point 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2010

    Jim's Comments - If there is a gold standard in the sub-$150 category, the Peak vise is it. While I'm only slowly coming around to liking cam-lever operated vises, this is a truly well engineered piece of American design. I tied everything from a #20 midge up to a 2/0 streamer with no problems. The vise is available in either a c-clamp or pedestal base configuration for the same price. I liked the base, but you could probably press bearings with the supplied c-clamp. It's easily the most massive c-clamp I've ever seen for a fly tying vise. Definitely, no wobble there. I only had a few minor complaints. I didn't like the fact that you needed to use Allen wrenches quite a bit, and the relative shortness of the vise post made it difficult to work around the waste basket I normally use. I disliked the bobbin cradle. The bobbin cradle required some modification to work properly. I had to sand down the block where the set screw is tapped so it would index the cradle arm. After that it worked fairly well I also didn't like the use of snap rings to change out the vise jaws. I'm sure I'm not the first person to send one of those tiny rings flying off into orbit. Knurling the cam adjustment knob would be advisable, as well. Most of these are very small concerns compared to how truly functional this vise is. I only really enjoyed tying on a handful of vises in this shootout and the Peak was right at the top of the list.
