First serious vise

#1
Hey all, looking to upgrade my cabelas vise. Anyone have suggestion? Want to keep it simple, probably not looking to travel with it much, like to tie from size 4 to size 20. Also like to keep it inexpensive as possible! Been tying for 1 year

Never had a rotary function so I’m not sure if I need one...

Thank you for your suggestions!

“Want to keep it simple” I remember saying that once....

Pedestal or clamp on? Get to a fly shop and sit down and try a few out.

Almost all are good vices, you have to find the one that fits you.

I have a Dyna-King Squire. It is pedestal. I use it at home and when traveling due to smaller size. I also have a Regal pedestal - awesome hook holding power. I prefer the pedestal type because you can use it anywhere. Many picnic tables tops are too thick and some tables/counters do not have enough room for the C-clamp.

I have a Griffin Montana Mongoose Rotary. It is all I need. There are a lot of good vices out there, hard to go wrong. This vise is made in Kalispell Mt. Pretty sure Renzetti is made in Penn. I like shopping at home businesses
