Default Re: Vises

We have had this discussion on more than one
occasion, but it never hurts to discuss it some
more.

I personally have tied flies on three different vises.
1. Was a cheap non-rotating vise to start at home.
2. Took 5 fly tying classes at my local fly shop using Renzetti.
3. Purchased a Peak vise about 2 years ago & still use it exclusively.

After using my Peak I do not have any plans at all to change.
As before in previous threads, there are as many opinions as there
are different vises. Ask questions & gather information. There have
been several article written in Flyfishing magazines & numerous websites
have their test results available. Research never hurts.

My overall advice to beginners is to take some classes first of
all. Secondly, if you decide tying is for you, purchase one that
has all the qualities you want, but won't empty your wallet.
