I've had the Peak rotary for about a year now and it's served me well. I started with the standard jaws, but they were too big for the flies I tie (normally sz 20-28). I soon had to opt for the midge jaws. I'm not sure if they've upgraded the screws on the later ones, but there's been some reports of the plastic ones stripping out. There's a brass screw upgrade kit for about 10 bucks, but I haven't had a single problem with mine.

I haven't seen near the comments about the Peak that you see about Renzetti, Danvise, etc. I really like mine for what it's worth.
