Just picked up a NorVise myself. I can't believe I waited this long to get one. Best purchase I've made since my wife's wedding ring!

I use "True Rotary" and yes there is a differance. True Rotary has jaws that are some way adjustable so the hook shank is allways in-line with the axis of the vise. When you rotate the hook , the shank stays in one place. Doesn't go up and down. Just like lathe. Is great for wrapping chenille, and wire. For example, you can make a Wooly Bugger way faster on a rotary.

I'll challenge anybody to that race. A Nor-Vise is a rotary on steiroids. Really in its own category of rotary. If you want to see the speed of a rotary vise, then go to you tube and watch Norm Norland tie on a Nor-Vise.

SUPER FAST!!!!

I started on a Universal rotary vise in 1966, moved on to a Regal, which I still use occasionally, and recently acquired a Peak rotary, which I like a lot.

I had several different vices. I just switched to a Nor-vise and can't believe how great it is. I won't tie on anything else now. I may even sell my baracudda.

I have a non rotary Regal index that I don't love. I have been thinking about getting a peak rotary vise to make triming the fly easier.

Started on a Cabela's Master vice out of a kit. Actually a very good vice and comes with 3 jaws. Now use a Peak. Need to get the midge jaws.

I've been using a Renzetti Presentation 4000 true rotary since the early '80's. Prior to that I used a Griffin 1A. I would have been using a Traveler after the 1A but either my wife or the owner of that shop in Northville, or both, are the smartest people in the world.

I wrap material, lead and wire with it all the time. The wraps end up nice and tight and consistent unlike when I wrap by hand. In fact, at a tying class our club held just this week some of the students had true rotary vises but were wrapping by hand like the lead instructor did. When I showed them how to use the rotary feature their wraps cleaned right up.

I recently became the owner of a Norvise, another true rotary but with turbo-spin. This thing will take some doing to get cozy with. Whether it's because I'm used to using a conventional vise or because it is so different it will take a lot of patience and time to get me to be comfortable on it. Dubbing on it is a breeze and I am really intrigued with the videos on making dubbing brushes. The automatic bobbin is a remarkable piece of work that I'm just starting to get used to working with but so far it rocks.
