Title: Wanted: Midge Jaws for Regal Vise
Post by: BugSlinger on January 18, 2007, 14:47:37 PM
Looking to pick up a set of midge jaws for a Regal vise - they are slightly smaller and differently shaped than the standard jaws. 

(The midge jaws are recommended for sizes 6 to 32, standard jaws are for sizes 3/0 to 18.)

If you have a set you're willing to sell, send me a PM - thanks!

I have a ste, but can't part with them. I bought mine from Hook & Hackle a couple of years ago and they were a bit less with H&H's discount, 20% I believe.

Thanks for the info Mike - are they significantly better than the standard jaws for tying in sizes 14,16,18?  Standard jaws are okay for this, but the midges might give more clearance...

I do think they are better, they are shaped in such a way that it is easier to work in closer to the jaw and hooks. In fact I have yet to change them back though most my flies are tied in 10 to 16 size range.
