The rotary vises I've used and liked were Peak and Renzetti...in that order. I've owned a Peak for over 5 years, and it just plain old works great. The heavy base means no sliding around.
I had vises with lighter bases, and heavier is better. The vise itself is nuke-proof.

I'm hoping to join a fly tyers club that meets near me. I wont be able to make it there for about 2 months unfortunately. I may just have to halt my enthusiasm to buy a new vise until I can try one out.

Free shipping through Amazon although I'd like to buy my vise at a local dealer.

Oh come on, you've been around long enough to know if you don't have pictures then it didn't happen

Nothing wrong with picking one of the best out there, I'm sure you'll have many years of tying from it, Good Luck.

I like my Atlas it works quite well however The Machining is a Little Rough on a few Parts.
I also made a couple of mods :
1 I drilled a hole in The Top Part of The Handle so it could be Tightened.
2 I put a Washer & an O Ring between The two End Knurled Parts to Prevent them from Locking Up.
Brian.
