how will it handle small hooks?
The reviewer commented that loading a #6 hook was a chore but how will it work with smaller hooks say #12 to #20?

Loading #6 is not a problem...smaller is not a problem either

I've used down to a 16 with no problem.

First hook I put in the vise was a size 22 dry fly hook, rock steady. I dont go below size 24 just because its to much of a pain in my opinion, but I dont think it would have a problem with down to a 28. Just make sure you have the hook in the jaws right because spring loaded jaws like these can cut finer hooks off.

I've been able to tie up to a size 4, I haven't tied any thing larger than that. I would recommend going smaller than a size 20 either.
