    Default best bango for the buck in a rotary head tying vise

    i jumped in as cheaply as i could, like it, have had spectacular success with it and i see some videos with these guys with these heads that spin on there tying vises and that looks quicker and easier, but from what im seeing ya gotta spend atleast a $100 to get one, surely there is a more reasonably priced one out there, what say ya"ll?

    Nope
    The objective in life is to find your gift, and the purpose is to give it away.

    I bought a $65 one and it’s ok but not great and now I want a peak. Around $165 or so but worth it I hear. I also hear they are back ordered though. But then I can’t help but ask myself do I really need it?

    My buddy at work just bought a fully loaded peak vise off eBay or amazon about a week or so ago. Think it was through kingfisher actually though. $199 if I remember correctly but if you add up everything he got separately it would have been even more. Taking some of my stuff tomorrow to work to show him some things and help start his addiction. Love my peak vise and so very glad I upgraded to it.

    I tried the peak at basspro, and it seemed one side heavy. Like it wanted to flop over ,(head not whole vise), once it went over top center. Tried the Rensetti 2000 and fell in love right their. No heaviness or wanting to flop over felling. Great vise, but about 20-30 dollars more than a peak vise...

    My $65 vise does like you’re talking. It turns and then so far wants to flop over quickly.

    My current vise cost $11, I can buy a ton of tying material for $199, my jig will not look any different it’s just purely easier, but for that kinda money I’ll put it the extra effort, I’ve been searching around and found a supreme for about $25, that’s about as much as I’d spend on one, does anybody on here have a supreme?

    That is all easily adjustable with the thumb screw. From locking it down to free spinning. I actually sort of like that and depending on what I’m doing leave screw loose so it centers my jig back straight up and down easily. Sort of a self centering function.

    I also have a Renzetti and see no need for anything else. Mine is old enough to have knobs on the jaws and not the cam lock. I gave about $125 for it about twelve years ago. I have a smaller fixed vise from a kit that I’ve never taken out of the box, it was a gift. My opinion is that it’s a tool and worth a few extra bucks for good tools and should I get tired of it and decide to sell it, I’ll 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.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
