Welcome to the Dyna-King Fly Tying Vise Page

Dyna-King vises are crafted of the finest tool steel, stainless steel and aluminum that money can buy. All Dyna-King parts are machined from solid stock and contain no castings of any kind!

Components are first fabricated on modern computerized equipment and then hand crafted, fitted, honed and polished to extremely close tolerances to assure you of watch-type precision, unequaled ruggedness, flawless performance and smoother operation.

One phrase describes Dyna-King.....

......Holding Power

Dyna-King's primary purpose is to hold a hook securely and this department, Dyna-King has no equal. Here a size 5/0 hook is being bent like a pretzel. Try this with any other vise and you will know why Dyan-King is called the vise that holds.

All Dyna-King vises have tool hardened steel jaws which will accommodate a wide range of hooks sizes. The standard jaws allow tying from size 10/0 and down, while the midge jaws are designed for serious trout tyers that tie on light wire hooks from size 12-28.

Hooks are secured by forward closing jaws. This unique feature offers the greatest mechanical advantage by locating pressure as close to the jaw tips as possible. Adjustment to various sizes of hooks is accomplished by twisting the forcing cone in either direction. The rear mounted lever cam allows easy access and is a simple matter of flipping the lever up and down to release the hook.

All models are available with either clamp or pedestal bases. Clamps open wide to accomidate heavy duty tables and/or benches. Pedestals are quite heavy and are equiped with non-skid feet to resist sliding.

Machined and polished construction renders your vise a thing of beauty. Simple, clean designs make tying with a Dyna-King vise a joy. All Dyna-King vises come with a life-time warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.


The Barracuda Junior Trekker: This is an improved AMERCAN made lightweight rotating vise. This is the Barracuda Junior vise made lighter for travel. Machined of solid stainless and aluminum it offers the same famous hook holding strength of the regular Barracuda Jr but weighs in at less than 1/2 a pound ( without the base). Also features ball bearing rotation, an adjustable rotating drag and a bobbin holder.

Very affordable. $229.00

Clamp or base, midge jaws available.






The Barracuda with the Indexing Option. The Barracuda is the only AMERICAN made vise ( some of those from that company that starts with an "R" are now made overseas.) which is made of stainless steel with ball bearings for the smoothest action you will ever feel. The indexing option allows the head to turn freely and then locks at 4 points along the axis of rotation. It will dry epoxy bugs evenly without adjustment. This vise behaves in a similar way to the old "AK Best" vise, which click locked at various steps as you turned the head. It is a true rotatory vise and has an offset head.


Clamp or pedestal available. Midge jaws available also.
