I'm about to drop a deposit on a vise. Rather not say which one until I have secured purchase. Let's just say that this vise falls into the totally unnecessary category. I currently have a functional Renzetti 2000 that I use quite often. I enjoy tying probably as much if not more than I do fly fishing. I tie for myself, friends, and the occassional punter who likes what I turn out. I have no intentions of going commercial but tie a lot more than I use. I probably have more material and crap than I will ever use and I keep buying more. I have totally unnecessary fly rods that don't get used as much as they should. I have flytying reference books that cost more than my overpriced school books. Going to try and justify the purchase to the wife when I get home from the east coast. Only thing that I have is that I've spun it as an investment...most vises depreciate, this one will not. That and the fact that I've been working a lot of overtime. Needless to say that's all I got and if I can't convince myself, I've got no chance with her. I need some help from you gear whores who have the lock on justifying totally unnecessary things on coming up with right justification.
