This is an outstanding vise. If you don't want to spend the money for a Renzetti this is your best vise. I have been using this vise for 30 years and it is in excellent shape. The durable jaws enable us to tie midges down to size 24 and all other fly sizes up to 2/0 saltwater flies. This comes with a C-Clamp Base but it works fine with a pedestal base.
