    Fly tying vice...

    Hey all, looking at getting into tying some saltwater flies.
    I have posted a "Wanted" ad in the right section for a rotating vice.
    Are there any things I should be looking for when buying one?
    Are there bad/not so good brands or anything like that?
    I have no idea!

    Thanks in advance...
    Cheers and thanks.

    hi there LNB you would be looking for something with a good grip on the hook, theres no real bad brands only what you spend on one,you will need it to get one can tie up to a 6/0,ive had a $50 sunrize vice for over 10years just had to use a rivert as a pin on my locking lever,but not long ago got myself a anvil rotory on ebay best thing ive ever done,it has a base to take away as well as a clamp for a bench ,i hope this helps have fun.
