Rotary vise

Seeking recommendations for an entry level rotary vise in the mid price range. I'm giving my starter vise to a friend and moving up a bit. $150 or cheaper. I don't tie enough to justify a top of the line wallet buster.

I've been using a Renzetti Traveler for almost 20 years; bulletproof, the last vise I'll ever need. I've seen them go for anywhere between $160-199.

Regards,
Scott

ps - if you can, visit a shop and test drive some vises; one man's meat and all that

I have a Peak vise, which I love. But have not tried any others. But at the Lynnwood fly show, there was more than one professional tier using a Peak. And they are right around $150.00.

I have a Peak I've been using for a while without complaints. I've had a Renzetti which I broke the jaw on after less than 1 week (since sold). I have an HMH spartan that is a great vise, but non rotary. You wont go wrong with HMH or peak. The HMH might have slightly better jaws, but you give up the true rotary function.

Mark a Danvise is imo the best way to go. Look also for the extension arm. It is a must to have for this vise. The standard arm is a bit too short.

Thanks. Yes, I read about the arm issue and the need for the extension on my research for this particular vise.
