Ok light, not very versatile,
March 8, 2014

"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.

O.K.,

"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."
