I have a Renzetti Presentation, a Regal (with the stainless jaws) pedestal, a Thompson pedestal, and an old Price vise. Bang for the buck, I don't think those Thompson's could be beat. However, if I had to pick one, it would be the Regal. Or the Renzetti. No, it would be the Thompson. I'm not deserving of a Nor-Vise, nor with to crank out the volume of flies to justify one. I also like the portability and smaller "footprint" of the other vises relative to the Nor-Vise. I often use an old c-clamp Thompson as my travel vise because it is so light. Part of your decision may hinge on what type and size flies you plan to tie the most. If you intend to tie many large(r) flies, and don't expect to crank them out, tough to beat a Regal for holding power and simplicity. Smaller (say, size 16 and smaller) flies? Renzetti. They are all good! As others said, go scratch and sniff them and see which you like.
