New England is known for its quality craftsmen whether in firearms, ship building, or furniture manufacturing. Being your best starts with a state of mind and for the folks at Regal Engineering, this state of mind is rooted in a proud New England heritage.
The performance of our vises lies in the unique design of our head and jaws which consistently hold the hook in place better than any of the competitive vises on the market, and allows for immediate change in hook sizes with absolutely no adjustments. This saves time and frustration and the tier can meet the demands of the next fishing outing in one tying session. Tie a dozen midges, nymphs, dry flies and streamers all in one sitting with no hassle to adjust the jaws. Simply sit down and tie what you need to fish. Each Regal Medallion Series Vise rotates 360 degrees and pivots 220 degrees up and down.
The real value in our Medallion Series of Vises lies in the choice of heads. Any Fly Tier can select the jaw that best fits their needs.
Big game Jaw
Big Game Jaw
Our most versatile jaw is specifically built to tie saltwater and large fresh water flies from tarpon to bill fish, pike, musky, salmon and bass. It can accommodate hook sizes from size 22 to 5/0, and features three hook grooves machined into one side of the jaw. It holds large hooks extremely secure yet allows for tying hooks as small as size 22. From tarpon to trout, this is one great vise!
Traditional Jaw has been the standard jaw and the workhorse of Regal fly tying equipment for many years. It fits hook sizes 22 to 1/0
The Midge Jaw has been specially designed for tying small flies down to size32 and as big as size 6. The ergonomically designed forefront provides the tier the comfort of tying small flies but allows for tying traditional sized flies as well.
Stainless Steel Jaw
The Stainless Steel Jaw is the smallest profile jaw in the Regal line of vise jaws. The jaw is manufactured from heat-treated stainless steel that allows for machining the small profile yet maintains the durability expected in a Regal Vise. This jaw is versatile and accommodates hook sizes from 32 to 2 making it the trout fisherman’s dream vise.
Building a high quality product is both easy and hard. The easy part is a mental decision to be the best you can be and to transition it through to build the best products possible. The hard part is execution. At Regal Engineering we approach every day and every project with a standard of excellence we have set for ourselves, to be the best, and to build the best! Standards produce quality, quality produces performance, and this is our company tradition. This is a way of life for us and the reason we produce “the best fly tying vise in the world.”
