Has anyone checked this out? I just got back from Tommie's place and after seeing his, I'm very impressed. It is not a vise you buy if you are on a tight budget, but a pretty impressive piece of equipment. Maybe Tommie will show off some of his dubbing/hackle bodies he has made on his. They are better than any that I have done. Norm Norlander can do some pretty impressive work on his invention as well. Check it out on YouTube or go to the website if you have a few minutes.

I really like the Robust design and many of the features and accessories. However, I posted on a different forum a similar question and summarizing the responses. Great for fly tying but not as good as a Peak for jig tying.

I started out on a Peak and still have it. I saw the Norvise and was impressed with some of the things that could be done with it. I especially like their self retracting bobbins.
It's taking some getting used to of course after tying on a Peak. But.....I get a little bored just wrapping chenille around the hook for the body and wanted to try something different. So......I order the Norvise and so far, I have really enjoyed tying on it and leaning some new techniques. It's not for everyone, but it's a pretty neat system that has been very well though out and constructed correctly. Plenty of Youtube video's on this vise. If you get a chance on these "cold" days, take a look. This is the first hackle bodied jig that I tied on it. Typical feather tail with dubbing body and palmered hackle body. Hopefully I can continue learning and improving as time goes on.

Tommie....what is your preferred feather tail material. Great looking jig? We all have different ideas....looking to pick you brain a little. above is that strung saddle or strung schlappen?

I have switched over to nothing but saltwater neck hackle from my tails. I have found the Hareline brand to be a very good quality. The hackle used for the body is Whiting Farms Dry Fly hackle. It's actually one of the 100 packs in a size 10. The size 10 seems to be right size for palmered hackle bodies for these crappie jigs in 1/16 and 1/8 oz. It would probably be necessary to go down to a size 12 or 14 for 1/32 oz jigs. I used steelhead ice dub under the hackle. As of late, I have been purchasing all my tying materials from Bob Marriott's Fly Fishing Store. They have a great selection of materials with quick shipping. If they don't have something in stock that I order from them, they always give me a call to let me know its on backorder. They also have a lot better selection of colors available in the Whiting Farms 100 pack dry fry hackle.

That is a 1/16 oz jig in the pic.

Glad to see you like it, I thought you would, LOL! Been tying on my Nor-Vise about 8 years now and just love it like all get out! I had a Peak which is a fine vise and for $150 it's the best. I also have a Renzetti Salt Water Traveler which also is a fine vise and with cam jaw is like $225 at least, but the Nor IMHO is king because it can do so much.

One thing Tommie, there is a much better way to do dubbing if your into that kind of tie. That is something I have worked on for years when I got time, which is one reason I backed off because I wanted to do much more with the technique Rope Dubbing by Don Ordes who is really a great fly tyer and on the Whiting Pro Team. He does sell a great DVD about this method of dubbing and I do have it and my one regret now is I have not spent near enough time on this and this is one thing I just have to do more of! I have a ton of dubbing I bought years ago and have hardly use much at all, but intend on doing a lot of that and will show some soon!

Enjoy Tommie!

Thanks Skip. And thanks for the positive recommendation on the Norvise. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase one. I will see what I can find on the Rope Dubbing technique by Don Ordes. I've got a lot to learn about dubbing and hackle tying. I'm looking forward to seeing your jigs using this method. I'm sure they will be top quality jigs for sure!!!!

This is my second jig using hackle for the body. I didn't use dubbing for this one, only a good thread base under the hackle. This is a 1/8 oz jig using Streamer Rooster Neck #1 in FL Chart.
The learning curve and adventure continues. smile

I did the same thing Skip. Hey, after you posted that picture I went off on a googling adventure and after doing some reading, I came across this.

Yes that is the stuff, but the DVD goes into so much more and so many more techniques that I thought is was worth what I paid for it. Just an FYI!
