Default Re: Tying vice for beginner

I started tying recently and have been using a Cabela's Master vise as my first vise. My Dad tied on it for awhile before giving it to me. It cost about 30.00 and it's easy to use. After quite a bit of use the tips of the jaws started to flare making it harder to hold small hooks. I'm pretty sure this was caused by tightening down too much on larger hooks. Other than the tips flaring a little the vise has been great. I would recommend it for a beginner vise. That being said I would like to upgrade to a nicer vise, but the Cabela's vise works well enough that I've been putting off upgrading it for other things like tying materials.
