    My advice is save your money and spend $150 + on a good vise that will last a lifetime. I've been tying on my Renzetti Traveler for over 25 years and have easily tied over 250,000 jigs with it hook size range from size 18 to 6/0. Spent under $100 for it back then. Lot's of good vises in the $150-$200 range. Pick one and once you tie a few and start to get the feel of it you will be glad you did.

    Well I had a Renzetti Saltwater Traveler with Cam Jaw and loved it, but it was my back up vise and I sold it not long ago. The Peak is a great vise and built like a tank, but if you have thick fingers/large hands I would say you should look at the Renzetti, but if not the Peak is great and will do well. I tie on a Nor-Vise, but the cost has really gone up since I bought mine for $300 and now are $400.

    Have also been a Peak dealer and just yesterday ordered one for a new tyer.

My opinion is that itís a tool and worth a few extra bucks for good tools and should I get tired of it and decide to sell it, Iíll get the money back. But to each his own. I really like being able to rotate and check the distribution of feather or hair, use it every time I sit down.

    I have the same Renzetti and it works great. I also have a Danvise and it works great also. The Renzetti looks better on the bench but Danvise can tie the same jig. Given the choice I would choose my Renzetti because it is built like a tank.

    Peak is a great one for the price point. I tie size 24 Midges for Trout all the way up to 4/o for Bass and everything in between. Lots of good choices -- find one that works for you and crank out the patterns.

    Sure you do! Treat yourself and squander some of the kidís inheritance! Sounds like you would really enjoy it!
