    Thank you so much for the advise. been looking them up all over the web and hear mixed responses on all of them, I repatidly hear the Griffin Montanna Mongoose roary is not good and quality low. which leaves the peak and renzetti.
    My friend ome over today and offered me his C&F Referance vise he got and never used for $500 its over my budget but i can save up and delay buying a new reel until end of the year anyone use the C&F refferance vice i havent heard anything bad about it apart from the price. i will be tying both trout and saltwater flies. i usually tie up a few dozen a week

    I've used a cheap basic vice forever, but was feeling rich and famous this summer and got a new Danvice rotary. Rotary vices have some advantages, but I have noticed parts of them are a tad in the way. I'm still getting used to it.

    I just upgraded to the Renzetti Traveler. I absolutely LOVE THIS VISE!! I have the pedestal base and couldn't be happier with it. It has brought back a total love for tying. Prior to I had just a super basic vise that came with the kit that I picked up from Orvis. My tying skills quickly outgrew the vise and I found tying on it to be a hassle instead of enjoyable. I know the Traveler is a bit more expensive, but I am a firm believer in the philosophy of "You get what you pay for". I can say that this will be the last vise that I ever NEED(want is a whole different story )

    You can't go wrong with Renzetti. I've seen so many threads through the years of users raving about them. I'm not sure I've seen anything negative either.

    With that said my stationary vise is a Peak. For the price, it is a great buy and solid build. It's not as refined as some of the Renzetti vises and has a simple appearance. None the less, it is highly functional. The standard jaws as mentioned are a bit chunky, so if you tie small, the midge jaws will be a recommended add on. I tied on it for about a year with the standard jaws before adding the midge jaws. One thing that I like about the Peak is that you can add or replace jaws pretty easily. They have salt standard or specific. Now they have added a tube fly head as well. I haven't had to deal with them yet, but I've heard great things about Peak's CS.

    Have fun shopping, let us know what you end up with.
