Default What is the best commercial grade wire bender for building inline spinners?

I've been looking for a nice wire bender so that I can increase my spinner production output for my business. The Worth looks great but the thing costs a fortune. I've seen some mixed reviews on the Boggs as well as the Cabela's professional tackle maker. Seen a lot of positive input here on the Twistech, but nothing about the Hagen wire former.

If anyone here has used both please let me know what you think of them. I'm looking at having to purchase as few as we will be making a bunch of them and am trying to get the best quality for the money. Maybe once our volume gets high enough we'll move to the Worth commercial grade wire former, but for now, we have to keep it affordable. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What type do you have now? I have a Cabela's and am very limited on spinner length!!! I would stay away from that one. I am considering the Hagen because of the cheaper upgrades in wire size over the twistech. Although If you bought the two twistech they could both be setup at the same time.

I believe I have a Boogs Tackle maker. Good solid unit, mounts to anything, I have it set up on a couple pieces of wood as a portable, in case it travels with me.

I had both the Boggs and Twisttech. I gave the twisttech away. I know nothing about the others mentioned above and continue to use the Boggs noncommercially.

I had both a twisttech and a boggs. I gave the twisttech away to someone here on I fish. To me the boggs is way easier to use and made better, easier and more consistent twist and loops. No experience with any other brands/types.

Never used a Boggs, but I just watched a video and the Boggs looks easier than the TwistTech.

I have a Twistech, Boggs and a Hagen. IMHO the Twistech is the best for ease of use, quality components and support. The other two are good units, but don’t compare.

Tom from Paulson Tackle, and the designer of the Twistech is a gentleman and a standup guy. Always willing to help with advice and product support.

A local product with superior customer support is with its’ weight in gold. My vote Twistech and don’t look back.

PS. I believe another local tackle maker uses Twistech to build their product.
