    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    LAW's vice myself....had the Renzetti masters and loved it, but was made an offer at a show by a guy after his vice broke sold it there and then...can't remember who i was watching tying at the time and asked after the make of his vice...the tier let me have a quick go on his and that was it i was sold...it was the first time i could tie in complete comfort with 360º access to see what i was doing...brilliant...the downside the price...the wife thinks i paid about $300 for it although with the $$$$ to ££££ ratio at the minute it would in reality be nearer $900...At the end of the day though i would suggest anyone whether your spending $10 or $1000 simply try before you buy...if your happy from the get go you will look forward to sitting down and using it.

    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    I love my Renzetti traveller cam. I added some of the hardware from the presentation, including the rear nut assembly because they are a breeze to spin big bugs in. All the thumb screws have been replaced by aluminum and brass from different hardware stores. It isnt the best vice out there but it is the best for me.

    I guess my two vices would be cigars and beers.

    used a clampon thompson A knockoff for many years and did well.

    picked up an Apex Anvil Apex Fly Tying Vise Review

    Not a true rotary, but with the base and rotatable hook, it's a big step up.

    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    Hi Tomfly:

    The Thompson model A and pro II are great vises and I could not agree with you more if your tying Trout Flies, When you start tying Salmon Flies the Thompson just would not do. That is why I went to the Renzetti Master. I can now tye my wet flies, Salmon flies up to 5/0 and of course some Saltwater flies and Bass Bugs. It is a shame that Thompson could not compete any more and produce the quality vises like they did on the Model A or the pro II vise. They were the best little vises for the money.

    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    I can personally vouch for tomfly's Thompson A --- we tied so many flies on that vice and it never failed -- That vice is older than I am and Im 47 years old.

    Unfortunately tomfly has it -- I had to buy a new one --- I now have a Renzetti Traveler Cam Vice (Rotary) Alhough I can't seem to tie Rotary Style I do Love that vice -- It holds a Plethera of hook sizes -- So far I've Tied fly's from size 8 to 18 with nothing but great results. As far as the rotary side of it --- It's great to turn the fly while in various stages of tieing to inspect your work. No regrets on buying this vice

    Peace
    Dan

    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    I fish size 24 olives to large saltwater deceiver patterns and everything in between (streamers, atlantic salmon flies, etc) and all are accomplished with a single vise...Dyna King Barracuda. Best vise on the market hands down...I have used all the other models at Stream of Dreams and can assure you that Dyna King is the best. Although I do not market my abilities at shows or blow my own horn, I can assure you I am qualified to comment on this subject.

    Re: With Regards to Andy B's Post on Vises

    The HMH Pro C-Clamp vse with 3 interchaingable jaws has been with me since I purchased it from Bill Hunter back in his old shop in New Boston, NH perhaps 25 years ago. It has never failed me in any way. THe new HMH Pro is a bit different with a differnet connector which attaches the vise to the vertical SS support rod. I think I like my viase better than the new HMH. Why wasn't the HMH included in the pole? Anyone know?

    I have always liked the looks of the Dyna King but the HMH works so well and simply hasn't broken yet of failed to hold a hook. If it does I'll get anothe jaw and well I guess I am in it for life! It has lasted longer than most or fly rods I have owned! So I am thankful!
