I read a lot of positive reviews about the Anvil Apex. If I was in the market for a vise less than $100, I'd take a look at it.

I've been tying on an Apex for a few years and it seems bulletproof. Very simple and dependable design. I've tied flies down to size 32 with it.

There are plenty of different vises out there and I have tied on cheap ones and own a few expensive ones but my apex I like better then all the others. From small hooks to big hooks it is solid everytime. And I tie a lot of flies, a lot!

Everyone keeps saying the Anvil is made in the US. I believe Regal and HMH are both made in Mass.

Who is "everyone"? Didn't see it mentioned on this thread.

Here's a list of some U.S. made vises, and where they're made:

Regal - MA
HMH - ME
Dynaking - CA
Griffin - MT
Anvil - IL
Peak - CO
Thompson - IL
Nor-vise - WA
Renzetti - FL

Renzetti was founded in Romansville, PA (near Philadelphia). They moved to Florida @ 1996.

Thanks for the input - got to see a kingfisher and anvil and as mentioned above they are well built but chassis is short. The regals are larger and accomodate my hand better - will save up for one of these.

Thanks again

I was born around Romansville and my dad was a car painter at the time and he painted some of the first Renzetti vises. Just thought I would share.
