Rated 5 out of 5 Great Tying Kit
The kit has a great variety of materials for a beginner and it has all quality tools. The quality of the hackle is not superior and it does not have a lot of deer hair, but there are no complaints to be had for the other materials. The vise holds the fly very well but has to be adjusted to rotate it. The bobbin is not ceramic but it has never cut even 70 denier thread or any other thread. Once you buy it you cant stop using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WahooFan2011 Great Beginner Kit
I purchased this kit about a month ago and have only gotten to use it about 4-5 times but have tied close to 20 flies in that time. This kit is my first exposure to fly-tying and so far I am really enjoying it. All the tools you will need are in this kit- bobbin, scissors, vice, whip finisher, and hackle pliers.
I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who wants to start tying their own flies. While you could probably save some money by buying all of this stuff yourself, this kit is more convenient if you (like me) really don't know where to start.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I think the vice and materials could have been higher quality (though I would still rate them as good).
