The Head Spin HS-1 is the perfect solution for fishermen who tie epoxy flies and need a quality epoxy fly drying motor and a rod drying motor or rod finishing motor.  This is our most popular model with a unique epoxy drying wheel.  If you make your own jigs or lures the HS-1 makes a great jig turner.

Using 5 and 30 minute epoxy to produce fly bodies and jigs is an increasingly popular practice in fly tying and lure making.  The most critical and final step of this process is rotating the fly or jig while the epoxy is hardening.  The HS-1's large 5 inch wheel will rotate over a dozen of your epoxy flies or jigs at the optimal rate for the epoxy to cure with perfect symmetry.   

The Head Spin’s unique spring hold wheel secures your flies better than foam and cork and it will not wear out.  The Head Spin quickly converts from a fly dryer into a rod turner using our new easy fit rod chuck kit which securely holds rods with a wide range of butt section sizes.  

This is the new improved design with a more stable base that can be taken apart and packed into a small travel kit.  The motor mount is laser cut stainless steel.  The base is solid metal.

Created in 2000 by Damian Coccio, the Head Spin was born of a need to uniformly dry the epoxy on saltwater flies. The Head Spin product line was sold by Damian’s company NuWave Tackle, directly to consumers from a webstore, as well as through distribution from small local shops across the US to national brands including Orvis.
Damian’s passion for fishing began at age 10 while fishing in a small local stream in Pennsylvania. Since then he has logged many hours fishing the eastern seaboard, Maine to Mexico. He currently fishes mostly in Florida where he now resides. An engineer by trade, Damian started an electronics company in 1996 that he runs to this day. An artist at heart, he is also a composer and solo bass player, and has produced ten albums.
In 2022 NuWave Tackle was acquired by The Bear’s Den Fly Fishing Co. of Taunton, MA.
