From the first handmade tying vise in 1981 until today many fly tyers enjoy the precise craftsmanship from the family business Dyna-King. And not without reason, the tying sticks are among the best in the world.
The Monarch Pedestal Tying Vise from Dyna-King is a conventional tying vise with outstanding build quality. Simple, compact, but made with high quality and craftsmanship.
The vise stands securely on a compact base plate, which has enough weight of its own for a secure hold. Even if you put more pressure on the tying thread, the Monarch will not tilt. The base plate also has two recesses in which you can store beads, for example, without losing them.
The Monarch is a rigid tying vise without an intermediate joint for fast tying and with an extremely secure hold of your fly in the jaws.
Tensioning jaws are the heart of any Dyna-King tying stick. After all, the dissatisfaction of bad tension jaws was the start for Dyna-King. So it goes without saying that there is nothing wrong with the Monarch's tension jaws. It is child's play to tension and release a fly. And even with exuberant pressure on the thread or fly, the hook does not move a bit between the two jaws. The jaws can be adjusted for hooks of different sizes and thicknesses. In addition, the jaws of the Monarch offer two semicircular guides. One for very large and thick wire hooks, such as saltwater hooks and one for medium hooks for tying trout streamers or similar fly patterns. The semicircular cutouts enclose the hook from both sides in each case and thus ensure a bombproof fit! Particularly small hooks for nymphs or dry flies find room in the tips of the jaws and even these would rather bend before the hooks move between the Dyna-King jaws.
In short, if you're a passionate fly tyer who values first-class craftsmanship with minimal manufacturing tolerances, you'll hit the bull's eye when you choose a Dyna-King tying vise. High-quality precision workmanship and a very precise fit of every single element make the Monarch an outstanding tying stick.

Dyna King is a traditional family business and has been manufacturing fly tying vises in the USA since 1981. The company's founder Ron Abby developed the first vise at the request of a friend in 1975, because he was very dissatisfied with the jaws of the models on the market at that time. In 1981, the first Dyna King model went into series production - the beginning was made! Today, three generations work under one roof at Dyna King in California. All models are manufactured there in precise craftsmanship and with the greatest attention to detail. Only the highest quality materials are used to ensure that every Dyna King vise is a lifetime investment.
