Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluefmx7 Peak® Rotary Vise with Pedestal Base PRV-G2
There are a lot of things I like about upgrading to this vise. I did a lot of research on vises and was really iffy on purchasing the HMH or the Renzetti because of the price. After using it for a while I will say it was probably the best purchase I ever made for a vise. The discription says that you can tie a #24 hook on it, I would say that is pushing it. I have tied a few #18's on it and anything smaller I would say purchase the smaller midge jaws. I have tied several dozen 3/0 flies on this and I must say they could up it from 2/0 in the description. I have tied a few flies on my buddy's HMH and I must say I like this vise a lot better and I am happier and my pockets are a little heavier. I like the fact that it comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!!

I haven't been tying jigs for very long but after upgrading from a AA to the Peak, I wondered how I ever did without it. The rotary function is SUPER SMOOTH and allows me to see the jig from every angle. It's GREAT!

I have used this thing non stop for 3 months now and have made a couple hundred flies, it still works as good as the day i got it. It is very solid and well built.
