    I've never felt the need to get anything more complicated than the Solar hair gauge tool, even for small hooks. Not much to go wrong with that one!

    Unfortunately hook tying is something i find difficult at best .
    I can tie a number 12 by hand but anything smaller needs a tool besides i would need a microscope to see the dang line .

    I have a Stonfo hook tyer that works a treat but this thing well nuff said ..

    I've been using my fly tieing vice when I'm tieing knotless knots etc on carp rigs.
    Very handy when you have big clumsy hands like me.😄

    Think a 4 inch engineering vice would be closer to the mark for me

    If you can use the Stonfo successfully, just use it as a hook clamp when tying knotless knots. Granted, you'll have to figure out how to judge the length of the hair yourself, but it should work. As you won't be using the loop creating prongs for anything, you might be able to use them as a hair length guide.

    Another alternative is to use a pair of locking forceps as a hook clamp.

    Oh yes all sorts of ways around the problem of tying hair riggs , i have even tied a loop cut it off and laid it under the wipping on the Stonfo when needs must .

    I just thought it would be nice to have the tool for the job , to find it such a pile of detritus in the quality department ffom such a big name is to say the least disapointing lesson learnt never buy any more Maver gear ... NXT seems far better made . cheers ...

    A slightly different thing - I haven't been able to work out a good way to whip a quickstop on a fine loop to a hook without making it look a mess. You can buy them ready whipped, in packets (Guru, I think), but I can't seem to do it as neatly.
    Anyone doing this?
