Default Re: Picking a Vise

Hi Larry,
I bought this one (minus the light): CLICK HERE That's a pretty good price if the light is decent. I've only used a light like that once, but it was a McKenzie. The flexible arm's clamp swivels, so swinging it out of the way is effortless. A must have....

EDIT: That price does NOT include the light.

Default Re: Picking a Vise

Tracker12, All I have to say is "DO NOT" get a fixed or non rotating vise. I tied on one for years and finally broke down and bought a full rotating vise. I have a Nor-Vise and love it, but some people hate them (Not really a beginners vise). Even if you decide not to tie rotary style it is still handy just to turn the fly and see it from all sides.
There are many companies that make full rotating vises that are reasonably priced.
Check this out for a little imfo. (I hope this is alright with the Admin)

It's a tough decission to make, but if you want something that will last you awhile, I would most definately go rotary. I think in the long run you will like it alot more.
