    Default Help finding a Stonfo 610 tube fly vise in the US

    So, I think that I want to tie tube flies. I have seen several videos from 2014 / 2015 on the Stonfo tube fly vise called a 610. I found some nice pictures of it online, but can't find a vendor in the US. I found a guy on Ebay who sells them out of POLAND.

    Anyone know what happened to this vise? Anyone have a US source that they know of?

    I have two backup options:

    Renzetti tube vice
    I own a Peak as a back up to my Barracuda and I see that Peak just has a tube jaw replacement for about a $100.

    The HMH kits are OK, but I think a dedicated vise would be nicer and I want to be relatively cheap on this one so the HMH tube fly vice that approaches $300, I'm going to pass on at the moment.

    I have never tied a tube fly or fished with one before so not sure that this is the answer to all of my needs. So not interesting in the big dollar vices for tying less than 10% of what I tie.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Can't you just get the attachment that fits into any vise jaws to tie tube flies? That way, you can at least try tying them for a while to see if you like tying and fishing them. https://www.jsflyfishing.com/js-tool...hoCyL0QAvD_BwE

    I saw that place in Canada, I was looking for a U.S. Source, but would feel better about Canada than Poland.

    Sorry, don't know of another source for the vise in question.

    I do think you should consider adding another option: Pro Sportfisher tube fly system (or "Pro Tube" as people seem to refer to it).

    The tube options with Pro Tube are way better in design (and material quality) than the other choices I found. The system offers so many choices to build your fly around, and everything is compatible like it should be. Lots of choices of weights and cones should you want those, and no need to "ream to fit" anything. It's not the absolute cheapest way to go, but it's not at all expensive, either, and the quality shows.

    The Pro Tube "Flexineedle" that is used to hold the tube material works very well, is made to last, and is only $17. For that cost plus the small price for a few tube supplies or one of the assortment (starter) packs Pro Tube offers, you can get going.

    Thanks bugsy for another worth while option. I ran across this article that I enjoyed for those interested in tube fly tying: https://globalflyfisher.com/tie-bett...ube-fly-needle

    I put this here to help others that might do a search on tube flies and run across this thread. It was an interesting read.

    Thanks to everyone that has helped me find my way along the tube fly tying path.
