I have a Dynaking Kingfisher that I modified to "sort-of" be a flat rotary.  I took off the head, cut off the arm just before the bend, replaced head.  It still gives the fly a bit of movement when rotated, obviously, but I really like it.

Here is my DynaKing KingFisher that I modified to be a "flat rotary" vise.  I like it because I roll hurl, and marabou and more on my flies alot and it helps to be able to just hold the feather and rotate the fly and wind it up.  

And I took a foot pad off the bottom of my guitar footswitch and it fit perfectly. Dropped a little magnet on the base to hold hooks and beads. Thanks.

Griffin vises are the best vises, y'all are just in denial...I tie from 10/0 down to 28 in mine with no issues at all, and the screw adjustable jaws are just ingenius.

I've never understood the desire to declare a "best" of anything.  Maybe a feeling of (perhaps) doubt?  I've owned several vises, including a Griffin Patriot.  It was a good vise, but not the "best" vise.  I don't even know what the criteria is for a "best" vise.  An excellent vise holds the hook securely.  And maybe lets you look at all sides of the tie, although I think that is a given with experience.  What more to ask than that?

I had a renzetti traveler since about 1997, never a problem with it.Sold it about a year ago.Bought a renzetti 2000series, In my opinion the best vise out there.

I just bought a Dyna-King Professional.  A really awesome vise.  I have been using it for a few months and has been great with everything.  Tied midges down to 20 and clousers up to size 8.  Holds like a champ.  If you set it in a flat position it acts like a rotary.  I like the versatility a lot. It is also just rock solid.

started in high school with a cheap pressed metal vise, soon quit 13 years ago started again with a Thomson AA then quit. started back up with a kit and a cheap Indian vise, later upgraded to a hardly used Griffin Spyder that I like. the AA was good but I do like the rotary feature
