Re: Does it matter?
I used a cheap 'kit' vise for the first two years of tying. It worked, but when I finally upgraded to my Griffin rotary, it was like night and day. I paid $45 for my Griffin. If I had to do it over again, I would never have bought that kit, I'd have gone straight to the Griffin or some other moderately priced rotary.
