Default Re: Vise Short List what to pick

I'm very pleased with the quality Anvil puts out. I don't have the Atlas so I can't comment on it but the Apex is built to last. Very heavy rugged components. The jaws will hold hooks from 2/0 to 22 which covers everything I'll ever tie. It has rotary function but not "in line" rotary (I think the Atlas has in line rotary though and can be used for wrapping materials). I only need the rotary function for checking the entire circumference of the fly anyway. Very solid base on this vise; won't tip even when spinning deer hair. Also comes with a c-clamp but I haven't used it yet. Hope this ramble is of some use to you
