    seeing is believing - 4/8/2014

    So my close up eyesight isn't what it used to be. Seeing the eye of my fly well enough to tie the line was a squinting PITA nightmare. Decided to try these. Best purchase ever that added to my fishing enjoyment. In short they work great. These magnifiers are at the right focal length to easily see the fly you are tying and then flip out of the way handily. The only thing that puzzled me at first was my face in spots got warm. I realized the the sun was being magnified and the rays striking small portions of my face as I moved. Not unpleasant, just weird feeling.

    Now I can see midge hook eyes - 3/24/2014

    After 50, the 'ol eyes not liking the little/close stuff. These magnifiers work very well, and fold out of the way when not in use. Good product and reasonable price.

    Bought these for my husband that complained about the difficulty he has when it comes time to change a fly. He loves this product!

    great purchase - 2/21/2014

    I'm 77 and wear prescription polaroid sun glasses when fishing. This past year I've been having great difficulty threading the tippet thru the eye of size 16 and smaller flies. Your flip down 2.5 magnifying glasses attached to the brim of my hat have solved my problem. Now less frustration and more time with a fly on the water.

    He can see! - 1/16/2014

    I purchased the Flip Focal for my husband to use while steelhead fishing ...and he's happy to report they not only help his sight while standing in a river tying knots, he also uses them for projects around the house when needed. Claims his chores get done quicker...more time to fish.

    Essential tackle - 12/18/2013
    By: from Williston, VT

    This is a good quality magnifier and essential for quick and safe work with all small tackle. It is so handy because I can attach it to the brim of my cap.

    Good - 12/4/2013

    Critical when to the end of the day we discovered that the correct fly is a nymph in size 18 and our eyes no responding as in the past!

    Super flip focal - 9/3/2013

    This flip focal works as expected. Thank's to the litle pin that is threaded through the shade on your cap it won't fall of. And of course there is the litle thing that you don't have to hold it, both hands free. Super Orvis, thank's.
