I have the Peak Base Camp package, received it for my birthday this year from SWMBO. Prior to that I have an old Thompson Pro (look alike) that I first received in 1981 when I started tying.

I use a regal and a thompson because that is what I have. I want a peak or renzetti rotary vise but that will have to wait till i get the extra cash (no such thing, lol).

I have a Griffin 3ARP that I have slightly modified with a large knob on the rear for easier rotation. I started with a no-name brand, non-rotating cheap vise. It held me over until I could find another vise. I am fairly happy with my Griffin, although it is a large vise compared to others. It holds hooks very well and I can put it just about anywhere with all of the extension shafts it has. For now, I will stay with it unless I change my mind for whatever reason.

Good: c-clamp, rotates, great hook holding power, holds a large range of hook sizes, easy to adjust and use

 

Bad: has to be horizontal to use rotary function for palmering etc, heavy and large compared to a Renzetti Traveler or similar

 

Overall, it has more good things than bad. I hope this helps someone. NOTE: I am not opposed to any other vise and do not work for Griffin.

I use a renzetti traveler for at least 12 years now, no problems whatsoever,am going to sell it to buy a renzetti 2000 od 4000 vise.

 

How much do you want for your Traveler?

Anyone notice the Damascus LAW vise on our favorite auction site right now? Drool, maybe I can at least save the photos, current price has one too many zeros for my wallet.

Glad I got one when I did, wasn't nowhere near that much. I know a guy that got 4 of them at one time; now there's a lucky guy.
