I have not had any experience with that one . My Renzetti has served me well for many years but a friend left his Regal at my bench and it is superior in holding those very small hooks .

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !

Renzetti or Regal.


I love my regal stainless. I tie from 18 to 6/0 and never had any issues. Just my .02

Got my pops the Montana Mongoose. We tie some really small flies for mid summer midge fishing. This vise handles everything we throw at it!

I have no experience with the vise you are interested in. I use a Peak which I chose over Renzetti Traveler. Lots of options out there but I wouldn't buy a vise without getting a chance to at least touch and feel if not tie on it. Good luck let us know what you end up with.

I want to try the peak. It looks like it would be good on my musky stuff. I think I may just have to bite the bullet and get a regal revolution and call it a day.

Once you get into true rotary and actually use the rotary feature for something other then looking at the other side of the fly there is noooooooo going back.

Vise

I have both Renzetti and Regal vises..If you don't anticipate tying anything much below a #20..go with the Regal..I don't reccomend the lightweight pedestal model..(wants to tip over )..go with the heavier bronze base or the C clamp model.
I think Renzettis quality control has slipped of late and I can personally attest to there customer service being marginal, at best. I returned a vise to them last year for repair...They had it for a month..after several phone calls, they finally returned it and said "the vise couldnt be fixed" ?? I'm thinkin when a person spends that kind of loot for a vise, there should be some kind of support to help rectify the problem.. I would have been happy with an offer of a new vise at a reduced price....Go with the Regal.
