"This lamp is a very good buy . I am really pleased with the adjustments and the magnifier. Since I am a neophyte fly tyer this lamp really makes a newcomer's introduction to my efforts so much easier."

"I bought this lamp for my dad to give him a bit more light on his fly-tying station. Great little lamp, and good light and magnifier, however, an adjustable length light would have been preferable. The adjustable length lamp included a vice, which he already had."

"Nice size, making it portable if needed. Very bright, works well for tying flies. I haven't used the magnifier feature yet, nice to know it is there if I need it though.I gave 4 stars because it is "stiff" in position adjustments."

Ok light, not very versatile,
March 8, 2014
By: Jvanh
from Porltand, OR
"The light works fine, gives out good light, and is priced well. However it is very flexible in height nor does it allow the tyer to twist it around to a good tying position. The magnification is fine, and the inset magnifying spot within the glass is helpful.
It also did not work very well with a stationary vise. I use a Regal stationary vise and tie with my right hand, but the only position I can find to use it is on my right which gets in the way of tying. Then, I have to move it away from the fly if I don't need the magnification. Good idea, but not a very versatile light. I plan to turn it in and buy one that I can secure to my vise and shines from my left out of the way of my tying hand.

"I give this item a "C". It is difficult to adjust the arms and have them actually stay where you wish them to be. It is good as far as a source of illumination , but the magnification is only O.K. , a problem with those arms. In addition, the cord could be 1 or 2 feet longer. I had to use an extension cord to plug it in--and the electric outlet was not across the room either."
