Griffin Montana Mongoose Cam Operated High Quality Advanced Tech Fly Tying Vise
SKU 940-00725

Advanced fly tying vise technology puts Griffin’s affordable fly tying vises way ahead of the competition. With models and features to suit both professional and amateur fly tiers, Griffin ensures a lifetime of flawless performance and durability. Their newly designed aluminium c-clamp provides the highest level of positive gripping, unequaled among fly tying vises. Combine this with superior quality heat-treated steel and stainless steel cam jaws, and you’ve got the very best fly tying vises available anywhere. The Supreme hook holding power that Griffin's vises are famous for has been passed down to the Montana Mongoose. The new design of this rotating vise has been refined for maximum efficiency. The new addition of the rotation lock screw and the new fine tension screw allows complete resistance control while rotating. The new delrin block is one of the smoothest bearing material available. The cam lever can be locked in a forward or backward position, allowing more clearance while tying. The sleek & agile design of the MT Mongoose will ensure a comfortable hand position while tying. The new addition of the extension handle allows a choice of a longer rotating handle. 360 true rotation. Tempered steel jaws will securely grip hooks from 4/0-28's. The MT Mongoose comes complete with the following accessories: C-Clamp, Pedestal, Bobbin Cradle, Material Clip, Supreme Bobbin, Hackle Gauge, and Deluxe carrying case.

    Very impressed

    Posted by B on Apr 18th 2019

    So far I'm very impressed with the value of this vise. Having both types of vise bases included was a big factor in why I made this purchase. The rotary action does have some resistance at one point of the rotation so it is not as smooth as I would like. This is the only reason why I did not give it 5 stars.

    Excellent Vise!

    Posted by Mark Fishburn Jr on Feb 17th 2019

    Grabbed this vise a few weeks ago and wanted to give it some use before reviewing it. The vise was well packaged and came with many extras. It came with both the pedestal and clamp style base as well as a bobbin rest, ceramic bobbin, and hackle gauge. The vise was very easy to assemble and all the required allen wrenches were supplied. Setting the tension was simple as well and I have it just where I like it. The rotation is extremely smooth with this vise.

    The vise is also super easy to adjust to fit hook sizes. Just a quick turn of a knob and throw the cam lever and its locked down. The jaws don't take very much effort to lock a hook into place as well. Not like some vises that you have to set it at a death grip to hold the hook still. This one you don't. Even when you crank up the tension the lever is easy to put into place.

    The material clip is super nice! Easy to assemble and super adjustable. It will do anything you need it too.

    So far it has been a great vise for me! It holds any hook I throw at it solid and has useful features and adjustments. I heard from some other sources the base was a tad on the small side and had a tendency to tip. Once I set the vise tension correctly I haven't had any issues with the vise trying to tip. All has been excellent! I should have bought one years ago. This one is much more enjoyable to use than my anvil. If you are looking at one don't hesitate. It is an excellent vise at an excellent price.

    Great vice

    I am now constantly tying in whatever downtime I have. The vise holds hooks well without slippage. The rotary feature also visualization of all sides without body contortions.

    Best for the Price!

    Posted by GC on Feb 28th 2017

    I have tied on Peak, which is a great vice. However the Mongoose jaws are great for all size hooks, and comes with a case and option of using the base or clamp. Great quality and lifetime warranty!

    It's a Keeper!

    Posted by Tommy H. on Jan 31st 2017

    I've been tying for a month now and knew right away that I wanted to invest in a durable vise that I can use for years to come. After reading some of the online reviews, I was drawn to the Montana Mongoose. Really loving it. Grip on the hook is very sturdy. I have yet to have a hook come off the vise (unless it breaks off!). Love the material holder, bobbin cradle, different base option, and of course, the rotation option. Definitely will recommend it!

    All around awesome

    Posted by Dillon H. on Jan 26th 2017

    Comes in at an affordable price point for a higher end vice, has held every hook I've put in it so tight I can either break thread or completely bend out the hook. Full rotary, very portable for destination fishing trips and finally and most importantly to myself , it works well is built well and it's not 500 dollars. Killer :)

    Great vise!

    Posted by AvidMax Customer on Jan 16th 2017

    This vise has everything you could ask for. Different mounting options and comes with a nice hard carrying case. The additional bobbin was a nice surprise.
