Default Re: Does anyone use the "Zephr EZ Rotary Vise"

The grip on the hook is good and my wife enjoys that I don't mutter cuss words because the hook slipped.

My biggest complaint is that it came with no instructions, and being new to that type of jaws, I was unsure about how to set them correctly. I solved that by searching online for instruction manuals and Youtube videos for the higher end vises with the same type of jaws. The concept is the same.

Bottom line, I'd say go for it if you're on a budget.
Thank you I was hoping to hear something positive aside from price. This will most likely be the vise i start with.

I'm in the same boat, and when flies are $3-$10 per fly and only last a couple uses. I think I'm down to 5 flies after 2 falling apart today.

The Ez rotary was the best in the up to
$50 range
