Will do.  I’d invite to our tying club UTFMA that meets in Bedford hopefully in the fall but probably that’s too much of a drive.

I’d like to meet you and niveker sometime.  Maybe the Marlborough show will happen this year and maybe not ! Lol

Started with the venerable Thompson Model A.  Bought a used Renzetti Traveler and put a lot of flies through it. Moved up to the Dyna-King Barracuda a few years ago and honestly can't see myself ever using another vise.

As Salarman said, vises are basically just hook holders.  The Dyna-King does that very well indeed and never a moment's trouble, although I must admit that DamaSeal is pretty sexy...

Have had a bunch...

 

Started with the old indian clamp vises and a few other generic vises...  then eventually found a Stonfo flytec when I got tired of spending money on a new vise every 6 to 12 months, which has served well for a couple of years...

Earlier this year I picked up a Regal Medallion...  not rotary, but does well for many patterns....  I go back to the Stonfo for it's rotary capabilities at times.

You don’t happen to have a pic of that Leonard you can post ?  Welcome to the board by the way.

I'll shoot a few and see if I can post them.

I have and use both. As mentioned by Gene, one of the advantages enjoyed with most clamps is the ability to raise and lower the vise a little or a lot. But the Peak clamp is a different design than other clamps and thus doesn't offer this option, i.e., you tie at a fixed height determined by the length of the upright.

I learned to tie with a C-Clamp Thompson Model A. 

I have tried pedestal base vises and find them awkward. 

I don't tie when travelling anymore, but when I did, I used a little thing I made close to 50 years ago. Photo is at Falling Springs, Chambersburg, PA. I wish I still had that much hair.  :)
