The potential exists for ANY vise to spit a hook or to have the jaws chip and throw a piece of metal. I recommend always wearing glasses of some kind when tying! (Easy for me to say, since I have to wear reading glasses to see the fly when I tie flies!).

FYI - I use a Peak vise, and when I called with a question the guy who answered the phone was Kurt Pflock, the President of Peak Fishing. Kurt is a very friendly and helpful guy who quickly resolved my issue at no cost to me.

I'm a Danvise owner. Smallie's title didn't bother me either. To each his own. I can say that I can't relate to any of his issues. I like the plastic (space age), my rotary works perfect, no problem holding hooks smaller than 20's, and best C clamp hands down, IMO. I agree the jaws are set too close to the shaft so I got the extension. My only criticism is the extension was loose and had to be shimmed up with cardboard. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if looking in it's price range, under $100. If looking in next price range I'd go Peak vise, and hope too someday. All that said poor customer service will turn me off faster than anything and in Smallie's situation I would have made a change too.

I agree with Smallieman - can someone change the title to "Danvise Issue !! ....................." ?

Peak defiantly has the best vise on the market for the money. I agree, the people from Peak are great people.

Love the Black Foot Mongoose. earlier this summer when i was looking for a vise it was either the danvise or the mongoose (mine doesnt have cam jaws either) i went and looked at them both and could see that the mongoose was worth the extra money. so far im happy with it ive tied a bunch of flys on it and my only real big complaint is the C clamp wont hold to my desk real tight. but that was an easy fix i just put some sticky corkboard stuff on it and now it holds fine

I've heard great reports on the Peak rotary, but have no hands-on experience with it. I have a Renzetti Traveler rotary and really enjoy working with it; particularly since I've gotten into tying up Rangeley streamer patterns, Steelhead patterns and Atlantic Salmon flies.

For dries and nymphs, I still use my trusty Regal Medallion; with midge jaws. Great hook tension and enough turning motion to allow me to view my flies from the top and bottom, in addition to the sides.

my buddy has the same vise told me if I want a cheaper range rotary vise to get that one hands down! I haven't splurged or so as I call it cause I am cheap... lol. I still just use my basic $20 dollar non-rotary vise and I can still tie flies with it and it gets the job done for me. when that gives I will get me the odyssey prolly tho.

Would that extension be the jaws? I just picked up a used Danvise for my FF clubs raffle and see that the jaws are chipped pretty badly. If what you are selling are jaws, I'll take 'em!

Smallie,

Forgotten in all this vise comparison is the relative price. Peak is about double Danvise's price. Enough said!
