Renzetti Traveler! official True Rotary! and then before that i had a terra rotary... both make it very easy to see all parts of a fly. and i often find myself using the rotary function on trout flies. The rotary function is great if you are thinking of tying streamers or saltwater patterns.

I tie on a Danvise. It works well but it does get cramped behind the hook, especially since I tie pretty much all saltwater.

Started on a cheap "kit" vise... wore it out in about 6 months. Upgraded to the Renzetti Apprentice. The Jaws rotated, but not along the axis of the hook. Have since upgraded to the Renzetti Traveler... true rotary and a truly great vise. Have found true rotary to be a real asset to tying. It doesn't make me a better tier, but it does make me more efficient and certain techniques more easy.

True rotary vises for me. Dynaking Sidewinder, and a Nor-vise. 90+% of the time I use the Nor-vise. I spin dubbing on it, and use the rotary function to wind materials onto the fly. I wouldn't want to go back to a non-rotary vise, Looks like your responses are about 90% rotary.

what rotary vise are you looking at. I know there are several ones you can get that don't cost much. There is the terra but i had horrible results with that one. And i forget the other one off the top of my head but i think jan or brian used to tie on it.

Perhaps you are thinking of the Griffin Spider vise. Retails for eighty-five dollars. Not exactly cheap but not super expensive either. Never tied on the thing, however I have heard favorable reports on it.
