Default Re: What vise do I need?

I "splurged" on renzetti traveler a year ago w/clamp. I added on a catch bag, light and magnifier glass. I'm tying mostly streamers but will start smaller dries this winter. Renzetti is a great small family company right in Florida. Recently ordered the pedestal base to move around the house more. I use the rotary function now and then (mostly tying beards onto Kreelex flies) but I guess you could just take the fly out and invert it. The traveler comes with a swing arm bobbin cradle...that gets used every so often. I'm gonna also start tying some classic salmon patterns for presentation/gifts wall fodder. I'm sure the traveler will do that well too. For me, I haven't seen any reason to upgrade.
