I have been tieing on a Renzetti Master for almost 25 years and it is still going strong--pricey but lasts

I have never tied anything but a fly on my vise, but I think that if i tied jigs on a vise, I'd look for a dedicated vise designed for that purpose.  Fouhook, bhorsley, what are the largest things / heaviest things you tie on your vises?

Hey Mkus. Thank you. I looked at those vises and I might go with that. They are very simple and cheaper. I'm looking at the kingfisher. For 175 ish. I just don't know what the difference is between that one and the more expensive ones

x1 also over 25 years and no issues will even handle 7/0 jig hooks . but really go with what you can afford and will do what what you want it to do. GL

Hi guys. I'm looking to getting a rotary vise. I've been looking at the atlas anvil which goes for 150. Also on the other end of the spectrum I'm looking at the regal revo. 450. I feel kinda crazy that I want to spend 450 on that vise. 

 

What i tie. 

Bucktails up to 8 ounces. With mustad black Nickel hooks to 8/0. They are thinner then a normal 8/0 in my opinion. 

 

Just looking for some feed back. I'm not really knew at tieing just new to a vise. I've. Been using a bench vise and would like to spring on something that can spin. 

I'd go with a Dyna-King Barracuda if you want true rotary function. Ive never tied any buck tails but if they're like Clouser Minnows where you need to rotate the hook over to tie on the underside I'd go with the Dyna-King Ergonomic Supreme (their old Saltwater vise). I have both and wouldn't trade them for any amount.

Theyre IMHO the best vises made my supreme can handle huge hooks I tie with tiemco SP's and they are thick!

Renzetti are way over priced I think for what you get?

I am looking for a Regal Big Game (aka: Jumbo) vice at a good price, used is ok. Any help running one to ground would be great. I need it for use with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, where I as a Disabled Veteran am a participant and they have a limited number of of vices for use at their fly tying sessions. Hook sizes here are running from 6 up through 4/0 but I also tie 20 through 4/0. The Regal Big Game is the most versatile of the Regal Vise.

 

(Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc.™ is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.)

 

Thank You.

Well I bought a Renzetti Traveler full rotary vice in Titusville, Florida for $159 new.

 

I could not find a Regal Big Game (aka: Jumbo) vice at a good price not even used. :( 

Oh well vice buying done for good now.

I feel like the regal one is beefer and can handle the big bucktails. Anyone agree ?

I like my Regal for the bigger hooks, so yes, I agree.
