Default WTB-Rotary Vise

Looking to buy a good used rotary vise, doesn't matter whether pedestal or C clamp. Going to be used for tying bass bugs and clousers for smallmouth and largemouth bass.

Thanks,

Matt

Matt, I have a Regal 'Medallion' 360' that I would consider selling. It's in great shape, no scratches, and the jaws are as strong as ever with no chips.
To be honest though, Regal advertised it as a 'rotary vise', but in my humble opinion it does not function well for that purpose. It seems clumsy, and doesn't spin on a true center axis point. The ability to loosen the head and turn the fly seems more attune to just being able to have another view of the fly without removing it from the jaws.
So if your looking for a "true rotary" this is probably not the vise for you, but if your looking for a good vise with amazing hook holding power, and a reasonable $$, it may work.

Just thought I would throw that out there.....

Looks like a nice vice but see what you mean, I would want more of true rotary.
