Apex Adjustable Fly Tying Vise
Not what I would expect from a mid price range vise. The rotary mechanism is wobbly and slides in the housing a bit. The thumb screw that tightens down the rotation is harsh and is difficult to modulate. The cam that opens and closes the jaws is very rough. I've read that it smooths out after use, but I expect more from a very simple piece of machinery that comes at a relatively stiff price.
This is my first rotary after tying for years on a fixed vise. I've decided the offset jaws that allow the hook shaft to the axis of rotation is critical as well.
I sent this one back. I'm going to look at a Peak rotary, but i won't buy until I've had the chance to tie a few flies first.

This vise is great. Hooks do not move when locked down in this vise. The vise jaw is small which is nice for thread clearance near the bend. American made and the fact it comes with a c-clamp and base just top it off. Like other said feel a little tight initially but breaks in quick. Just very well made and an awesome value!

This is a very well made vise. It's sturdy and the cam device is smooth operating and holds a wide range of hook sizes securely. I ended up with the Apex after trying a cheaper model, which gave me nothing but grief.
