Renzetti vise question in The Fly Tying Bench Posted April 24, 2005 · Report reply I've tied of the Renzetti Traveler for 10 years, now, and I have no complaints. Of course I added a few things along the way. I added a Dyna King Extension arm (w/D.K. clamp), and a Dyna King Wastrol. Both of which I would recommed no matter what vise you get. The D.K. exension arm allow you to position the vise closer to you, and out away from the table. It allows you a very wide range of height adjust to suit your personal tastes, and is constructed of stainless steel. Very good quality. The wastrol allows you to catch the trimmings, so you don't have to wear them. Also, if you drop something like a bead, or a hook, it should fall into the Wastrol without having to get on all fours, crawling around on the floor looking for either of them. I would definitly go with a clamp base, instead of the pedestal. The bigger flies will give you headaches when trying to keep the vise from moving around. Not a problem with trout flies, though. The pedestal might allow you to move the vise from place to place without worry of marring your wifes good coffee table, but I tie in a set location at home, and when I travel, I can tie at a hotel room table with no clamp clearance problems. The Master Vise is a great vise, but the advantage is the extra strength in the larger diameter frame, and the head adjusts from angled to straight to allow you to tie a clouser minnow without buying the clouser head attachment for the Traveler, or the Presentation series.
