I bought this for my son who is an avid fisherman and does a lot of fly fishing in particular. He absolutely loves it and finds the magnifying glass especially helpful.

Nice to have extra magnification as eyes start to fade.

Ordered this product with the thought that it would be just the ticket for aging eyes trying to tie on small flies in fading light. Was very pleased with the modifications to the location of the threader wire (With older units it was possible to snip off the threader if you weren't paying attention) Unfortunately the protective sleeve or tube guiding the threader wire broke free after only one day of use and the guide wire base popped out of the slide mechanism. It's all fixable (we fly-fishers are, after all, a resourceful lot) but a little disappointing for an Orvis product and an annoyance considering the price.

Extremely helpful for those of us with weak eyesight and unable to carry three pair of glasses on the stream or lake.

Easy to use. Great for not the best eyesight. Good price.

The small flies and leaders need a good light and view to tie together. The lens is small but works when aligned up. Takes some practice.
Not what expected -

I thought i would be able to use this instead of having to use my glasses but it does not work for me. Nice gadget but hard to use one handed in order to use the magnifying glass and tie a fly on. I will return this item for something that I can use.
