I've been tying now for about 3 years. Without getting into specifics, I've found a couple limitations on the vise that I'm currently using. I am now tying down to size 22's for the Clinch, and up to about a 1/0 saltwater for stripers.
I've been asked what I want for Christmas, and I believe a new vise is in order. I will not go with a Renzetti. Seagull has suggested a Regal, but there's something about them I'm just not comfortable with. I think I want a Dyna-King. Probably one of the Barracuda series. I'm pretty sure that hook holding won't be an issue, and that the larger flies will tie themselves on a 'cuda. What I'm wondering about now is the size 18 - 22's. I don't mind buying the midge jaws as well if that is what I need. I'm hoping to not have to go to a two-vise system for the sizes I normally tie.
Anyone tying to small sizes on a Barracuda (full size, Trekker, or Junior)? Does it work well, or is it problematic?
