The aim of Maier & Fazis was to develop the perfect fly vice.

Hans Maier recognized many years ago the importance of having a central rotating axis for fly tying.

Andreas Ruf, a cutting machine operator was also unsatisfied with the existing vises and worked on his own design.

Both found Hans Fazis who offered the necessary technical advice and production resources. The result of their cooperation is the Maier & Fazis SpeedVise. A high end product with outstanding design made in Germany.

Maier & Fazis SpeedVise

With this fly tying machine every fly can be tied effortless and effective. The SpeedVise holds hooks in sizes #8/0 to #32 securely in specially hardened jaws.

This vise is the perfect choice for every tier who has the highest requirements for his equipment.

 

technical details:

 

InLine Jaws

 - The centered position of the jaws ensures uniform rotation without annoying imbalance.

Speed Rotation

 - THE SpeedVise feature is without a doubt the effortless rotation of the vise axis. To spin dubbing, thread and other materials is possible with incredible speed. 

Smooth Drag

 - The tension of axis rotation is infinitely adjustable. Perfect for precise work with hackles and other stuff.

Tiltable Shaft

 - The shaft of the vise is tiltable backwards and forwards with no need for any tool. This way you are able to adjust the vise to any need -even while tying a fly...

Sliding Clutch

 - Our sliding clutch secures the axis propperly. It will not get loose or fall out accidentially and not whith a tilted shaft either.

8Point Locking

 - By using the clutch you may secure the axis in 8 position (45°-wise). This way a safe, precise and comfortable fly tying is garanteed even when working with salmon twin hooks.

Vario Bobbin Rest

 - You just need a slight touch to get the bobbin rest out of the way. The Vario Bobbin Rest is 90° pivotable and of course adjustable in heigth and length. 

Easy Adjustment

 - The hardened and burnished vise jaws are easyly adjustable to any preferred hook. No matter the size: From #32 to #8/0 - the SpeedVise will hold em all. Perfectly.

ThreadSpots

 - 2 thread clamps behind the jaws will make your tying more comfortable and actually easyer. Great for dealing with several threads or wires at a time, or tying with long hackles and other stuff.

Solid Base

 - The base plate of the SpeedVise weighs arround 1,7kg (~3,7lb). This ensures a propper footing. The surface is carefully powder coated for best look and feel.

Unique Design

 - Best high grade steel and sheer art of engineering blend to an outstanding fly vise "Made in Germany".

 

If you choose to order the SpeedVise you get a lamp for your fly vest as a present.

During one of our fly fishing trips to Spain we discovered these fly boxes in the south of Spain. They are made by a craftsman who uses only the best Thuja woods to handcraft these boxes. Thuja typically shows numerous knots in the woods which makes every box a unique piece of art. Due to the softness of the wood and the soft oiled surface boxes may have small imperfections that make them even more unique.

These fly storage boxes are handmade for us by a Andalusian craftsman from the finest "Thuja" woods available. Each box is unique. Thuja is a soft wood that normally shows small notches on its surface. The compartment size is 3x3 cm and the height of the compartment is 3,4 cm. The weight of the box is approx. 377 g.
