I'm going to give my daughter the displaced Traveler once I replace the jaws with the cam model and I'll by a Baracuda for when I travel.
Get me on the water!!

I've always dreamed of buying a fully tricked out Renzetti Master vice, but can't justify the pricetag when my Danvice does such a good job. Maybe if I win the lottery I can buy one...

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

The Peak is equally good in most ways but due to the larger size it just doesn't feel quite as comfortable to me. I like to use the Thompson vises for nostalgia. They both work very well too despite being 30 to 40 years old.

I recently retired my Thompson of many, many years. I wanted something in the same configuration with more stability and the option of changing jaws and head angle. I got myself an HMH Spartan. I've been using it for a while, now and am very happy with it's performance, stability, great construction and ease of changing the jaws. It will probably do me for the rest of my life.

My first vise that I used for 40 years was a Herter's vise I ordered from their catalog store in Waseca,Mn.I was lucky enough to win a Griffon Patriot Vise at a Trout Unlimited Banquet which I currently use to tie my flies.

I've been tying commercial on a Danvise for the past ten years. It has served me well and the only thing I've added to it is an extension arm (www.btsflyfishing.com/danvise.htm) that gives me a little more room behind the jaws when tying long streamers & saltwater patterns. Take care & ...
