The NIRVANA Rotary Vise V2 has exceptional rotary function. Combining some of our favorite fly vise features into one vise we were able to create a vise that highly out functions its price point.

The New V2 Model Has Huge Improvements
This new V2 model has some huge improvements from our last vise model to improve the functionality, longevity, and added a material clip as well. 

Fly tying vise jaws hardened steel

Strong Durable Jaws
The vise jaws are made of a hardened tool steel that will last the long run and hold hooks tight. 

Fully Adjustable For A Wide Range Of Hook Sizes
The hook size adjustment knob on the front of the jaws allows you to go from holding very small hooks down in the 20s to hooks up in the 2/0 size (or bigger) with a few turns.

The hook lever at the back side of the jaws tightens the jaws down very tight on the hook so it won't move. 

Smooth Rotary Bearing System With Fully Adjustable Tension
The quality bearing system on this vise makes the rotary motion very smooth for excellent performance.

The adjustable knob on the side of the vise controls the tension on the rotary motion on the vise. You can go from no free spinning, to light tension for more control, to tight tension for moving the vise to different anglers for easier tying. 

Rotary vise handle

Easy-to-Use Rotary Handle Gives You More Control
Many vises don't have a full handle for rotating the vise but the NIRVANA rotary vise does! We feel like this feature is a big deal and it is something that most everyone mentions they love when you first use this vise. This gives you smother control when rotating the vise to wrap wire, ribbing, dubbing, or other materials. We promise you will love this handle if you use the rotary function often.

Lots Of Open Space To Work With Materials
The large "V" shape of the vise arm and the jaws leaves you with a big open space behind the hook to work with materials with nothing in the way. 

Fly Vise Material Clip

Material Clip (removable)
The material clip adds a spring to put your materials through to keep them out of the way until you need them. This is especially nice for body material, ribbing & wire, or streamer materials. 

Adjustable Arm Angle
The Arm is adjustable so you can move it up or down to easily create the best center axis for you hook when rotating the vise, for the best position for wrapping of materials. 

Bobbin Rest Included
The bobbin rest is included with the vise so you can get the thread bobbin out of the way when wrapping materials, ribbing, and wire. 

Premium Pedestal Base Included
The pedestal base is a larger aluminum base with grooves made in it to hold flies you've tied, beads, or hooks. The wider and thicker size of the base makes it very stable so you don't get teetering issues. The grooves help to keep everything neat and organized. The pedestal base is very portable so you can take your vise with you anywhere when traveling. 

Fly Tying Vise Base

This base also has a special knob bolt that allows you to really crank it tight fully secure your vise stem so it will rotate around at all at this connection at all. 

An Excellent Vise At An Even Better Price! 
There are not many great rotary vises available under $160, THIS VISE FILLS THAT GAP with a lot of excellent features that work great!

Shaft Diameter
The shaft 9.8mm (about 0.386 inches).

Why is a rotary vise important to tying flies?
Using the rotary function of a vise does a few things for you.  First thing is it will speed up your tying for each individual fly.  The rotary creates more uniform and better proportions.  Proportions in tying is vitally important.  The fact that this is a center axis makes an even bigger impact.  This can be more easily seen when wrapping wire bodies.  Wrapping wire bodies is a dream and breeze with this center axis.

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews
very nice

well I got the vise today and tied a few it is very nice!! For me the stem could be another 2 to 4" taller but it works ! The only problem I do have is the packaging I was surprised to go out into the rain and find it on my front porch and only in the white shipping box I like to have a box to keep in in but there isn't much left, and not very nice to look at anyway.... But for now it works well and smooth so we'll see.. Thanks for such fast shipping!

Great vise and customer service

First of all, Brent and company are awesome. I patronize Dragontail frequently because of how solid they have been in handling my questions and issues.

This vise is a huge improvement over version 1. I had convinces my wife to buy me a v1 as soon as they came back into stock last summer on the condition that it was a Christmas gift. I failed to open the box when it came and put it away for Christmas. When I opened on Christmas, I ran into issues with the v1. Brent swapped it for a version 2 immediately and it is freaking awesome. It goes together exactly as you would think and the base is solid. There is no movement of the upright and all the fasteners really lock the vise down.

My only suggestion would be that a taller support be an option or available for purchase. I am only in year three of my fly fishing career and I have to tie on an Orvis fly bench while sitting on my couch with the vise on my coffee table and the added height would be awesome. However this is a peculiarity of my living situation and should not be interpreted as a flaw in design. This vise is a huge upgrade over my static bolt on vise.

I cannot recommend this vise more enthusiastically. It works perfectly and is a huge step up from beginner equipment. Plenty of spare parts, adjustment tools, and a material clip are all included.
