    Default Rotary Vises

    I tie on a Renzetti Traveler rotary vice. I must confess that I rarely use the rotary feature when tying, but tie the "old fashioned" way. Curious as to how many others don't use it that much even though they have it.

    Digging up an older thread, just because I've not been here for a bit.

    I use the rotary function on mine but not to wind materials. I don't have a bobbin rest and end up winding thread into a ball, or worse, unwinding thread and materials. I use it mostly for inspection before moving to the next step or when dubbing dry flies. Some flies I need to add the head cement from the bottom so its nice for that as well

    Get a Regal vise if you are tying tons of flies. You will not regret it. I love the quick release to adjust my flies and they are built solid. I love mine and it has tied thousands of flies.

    Anyone try the new regal rotary?

    I need a left handed one and must special order from the company, but have never seen one to see if I like it. The videos look neat.
