My first vice was a Renzetti Traveler and it still gets used when I am on the road. I currently switch back and forth between a Dyna King Barracuda Jr. and a Renzetti Presentation series vise. Both are in-line rotary, which is in my opinion the only way to tie.

I use the Nor-Vise. Very well built and easy to use.

I have had 8-9 different vises over the last 40 years from $50 to $450.. I am currently using the Peak rotary vise (~$140.) and I believe it is the best vise I have ever used. I tie about 500 doz. flies each year. I have found that the midge jaws works great for every thing that I tie from size 8 to 22.
