    Default decent price for flytying stuff?

    ksl.com - Classifieds for Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming

    i already have a vise and all but little brother wants to get started into tying so i told him to call grandma and see if she wouldnt buy it for both of us for our b-days coming up.

    im after it for the griffin tools but it looks like a decent deal? cant really tell whats in there but it looks ok. i also will see if she will if she couldnt negoitate it down to 100 dollars

    Good luck on swinging the deal with Grandma. Normally I'd steer clear of kits, but there are some good tools, and materials in those. I've got that vise as my travel vise. I like it. It's holding up well after a year of use. The scissors are good. The adjustable hair stacker is good. That looks like one of the better ones.

    that's i saw the griffin tools and i have a griffin vise and love it. the materials looks like average store bought stuff but better than kits.

    just by looks at what i can see in the picture it comes with 24 dollars worth of bobbins, 12 dollars in hair stackers unless theres 2 then its 24, 10 dollars in hackle gauges, 10 dollars in the two bobbin threaders/cleaners, 5 bucks for the two hackle pliers, then the vises i have no clue about prices but lets say they would run at least 40 bucks for the two so there is 100 bucks in tools.

    then i see some hackle not a nice neck but theres another 20 bucks, i see 18 spools of thread and possibly mylar stuff and other threadish material so if they cost a dollar a piece thats 18 bucks it looks like a good deal and would really be good to get my little brother started with decent tools. then even if it is cheap kit material theres enough to keep little brother going and learning
