crazy system, still wouldn't call them a NEW technique, just a faster more mechanical way to wind stuff on the hook.

Was that vise on a motor like a sewing machine or was he just spinning it by hand?

Tobe - it was a response to know it all Tim murphy... he stated that there was no technique that can only be done on a rotary vise. He was wrong.

That is the nor vise and its spun by hand.

He was not wrong...you are still just putting the material on the hook.

No doubt used by all three people on Earth who own a Nor-vise?

It's just another con designed to get money from people who don't know any better, that's why they are so incredibly popular!

Shakey,

I might take you up on that. I'd like to check some of your gear collection out too. I'll shoot you a PM tomorrow.

I'm not a tyer. Probably bleed to death getting hooked, but I'll tell you that a ton of flies are tied on my son's Renzetti Travelor. He needs something that is of quality and can be transported, doesn't weigh a ton and performs. It wasn't too expensive either compared to some tanks. He cannot waste time messing with hooks not staying secure. He's had it for a year and I don't think he's had a complaint. He had a Mongoose before which he liked but weighed just way to much when you're looking at airline baggage. So far this seems to be the ticket. If anyone has anything that fits better than this. Give us a heads up.

This really needs to change. One day, you'll thank me for hounding you about it all the time.

This might be of interest to you and Wes......

You can put the vise down for having a small market share but you are still wrong.

Do you always put down products that have low market share or just in the fly fishing market where you are a self proclaimed internet board superstar?

Dear Fishon,

He's winding a hackle there genius, something that has been done tens of millions of times before. It's not some fly tying revolution despite what the guy who sold you your very own Nor-Vise told you.

P. T. Barnum said there are people like you born every minute, hope you enjoy your vise!

Regards,
Tim Murphy

You have a Peak too Ernie?


Jay: Nope. Tied on one and loved it. I like the price tag even more. As soon as I get a job and get some income again, it is the first thing I'm going to get.

No need for glue. Just c-clamp one side of the grips with the screw to the table.

Lee Wulff tied with his bare hands...Grrrrrrrrr

I have both tied on and sold a lot of vices and from my own experience, and in that price range, you can't go wrong with the traveler or the regal.

Aside from the obvious difference between the two, there are a couple less obvious ones. While the traveler is a great vice, it is small, and because of this, I find that it is a bit "tippy"--if you get the pedastal base. The regals I've tied on have heavier bases and therefore are a little more stable. For me, the most important difference between the two is the ease with which you can secure a hook and the range of hooks that you can put in a regal. As there is no fine tuning with a regal, time is saved. Also, if you plan on tying saltwater flies or even big freshwater stuff, the traveler doesn't hold (too solidly anyway) hooks larger than 2/0. You don't have the same problem with the regal.

There you have it. I haven't tied on every vice out there, but I've sample a bunch, and these two are solid.

Have fun.
