After SwissCDC made a wide range of diverse very good fly-tying materials available to you, we made an effort to produce a fly-tying tool reflecting the quality of our fly-tying materials.
Their employee Christian Kuchelmeister thought a lot about design and practical application and developed a tool in an unrepresented quality and function.
Now they can present you the result of their efforts: the "multiclamp". The modern material clamp is made of high-strength stainless steel. The surface is not dazzling. The design is modern but at the same time trimmed for functionality. The clamping range is open so that it is possible to bundle up and work on the trapped material with your thumb and forefinger without any other tools. The jaw is pointed shaped thus it is possible to go directly into the deer hair. Therefore you can take it over the entire jaw width into the dubbing loop. Moreover, artificial material like craft-fur or fake-fur can be picked up directly out of the mat into the clamp. Thus, the multiclamp can be used not only for traditional fly-tying with our CDC materials. So, we address also fly-tiers who must get much artificial material into the loop by tying streamers. A ruler in a 5-mm graduation is lasered on at the jaws so that the material can be tied in in the same amount every time. Another advantage has this multiclamp while using coarser hair dubbing. The loose hair can be picked up from the table because of a small radius at the clamping edge.
The multiclamp is a non-daily multifunctional tool excelling the quality of previous tools. A tying tool in Swiss quality.
Summery of the advantages:
- High-strength non dazzling model - High quality, whole clamp is made of stainless steel - High clamping force - Open clamping range - Material can be picked up directly out of the hide - Material can be bundled up directly through the open clamping range - Ruler at the jaws so that the amount of material is the same every time - Loose hair can be picked up directly from the table
What an outstanding recommendation for a clamp! The SWISSCDC clamp arrived this Thursday, and I spent all day yesterday using it while tying flies with CDC, fur, and splitting thread to insert both. I was never any good using the split thread technique for applying CDC, other feathers or fur. I relied mostly on a dubbing loop, but found that it had limitations for fine materials. The SWISSCDC clamp’s design makes it extremely easy to use split thread techniques. The clamp is a marvel.
