Default Re: Opinions on a Vise

I am not going to make any suggestions just yet.

If you plan on tying large flies (4/0+), you are going to want a heavy pedestal base or a c-clamp. You do not want your vise moving around when you winding down tightly on your hook.

You will need jaws that can hold down big hooks. It becomes in inconvenience when the hook moves around inside the jaws. That means the hook has to be reset in the jaws and the clamp down pressure readjusted.

Here's a question. What options do you have for vises at the store?
