I am setting up my new Peak with tube tying gear and need some suggestions on the size needles I'll most commonly use.

Peak offers 5 of them at @ 28.00 a piece,

PTFP-031 Tube Fly Pin 1/32” $27.95
PTFP-047 Tube Fly Pin 3/64” $27.95
PTFP-062 Tube Fly Pin 1/16” $27.95
PTFP-078 Tube Fly Pin 5/64” $31.95
PTFP-093 Tube Fly Pin 3/32” $31.95

I'm thinking of getting two or three max, As yet I have not scoped out the normal run of tube sizes on offer for the steelhead and trout spey tubes I'll be tying.

Thanks in advance.

I have the Peak tube vise and the 1/32” and 1/16” pins. They cover me from the tiny tubes around 1.8mm or the liner tubes for the metal tubes up to bigger tubes 3mm or the biggest I have HMH 1/8 OD. The 1/32” pin does the ProFisher tubes with the built in junction tubing well. The ends are conical unlike some of the cheaper pins I’ve used in vise adapters so each pin should cover a few different sizes of tubes. Also the metal tubes or more rigid tubes can go right in the vise chuck. You don’t need a pin. Hope that helps

I guess it depends on the tubes you are tying on. I use Frodins needle a lot and build my flies with multiple diameters of that tubing. The needle has a 4 diameter taper and It will fit pro sportfisher tubes too.
