    Im using a Traveler Vise now. I like it very much. But Im planning on upgradeing to the Presentation Model. It has a few more things I like. Like the adjustable body that the stem sets in.

    I have had my 4000 for a year now, I like the rotary function. It is a well finished vise. I find my Regal simpler to use.

    If you like to overpay for equipment, buy this vise. It’s way overpriced, and has little difference in function compared to my Peak. I also love the Anvil Apex for a smaller non rotary portable. Both Anvil and Peak understand it doesn’t cost $300 plus for a good vise that will function for a lifetime.

    If you like the paying for a name, this is your vise. It certainly ties well, and is sleeker than the Peak. I just can’t get over the outrageous cost IMO.

    Have used the cam version for about three years and love all aspects of the vise. I have smaller hands and found the smaller jaw head much easier to use when inverted and applying materials to flies like Clousers. Have a Peak and found the jaw head to be large in comparison and awkward in comparison. The cam jaw is much easier to align and adjust for the hook as compared to the Peak. Yes, there is a definite cost increase, but having the vise for over three years without a problem, it is well worth it.

    Love it. I tie commercially on one. I have also used the traveller and Dyna King vises. It does not come cheap, but it just has a nice feel to it. The layout is efficient and effective. I tie size 22 up to 8/0- Muskie stuff on it. On the durability side, get yourself a spare tension screw if you tie salty stuff… The can break after cinching down a few thousand big uglies… I have tied over 60,000 flies on mine and am on my third screw… 20,000+ flies until a $5 part wears out… I can live with that! If you are on a budget look at the traveller, but the way the rotation handle is secured bugged me a bit. Most people who don’t tie over a 1000 flies a month should be able to live with the slight bit of occasional adjustment for $200 less!

    I really like my Presentation 4000 vise. The adjustments are simple and positive. Materials are top notch and it’s a very compact and well designed vise. I’m also using a Dyna-King Barracuda that’s sort of like a Renzetti on steroids. If I tied primarily very large salt water flies, I might go for the Barracuda but since I enjoy tying all size flies (2/0 – 22) the Renzetti seems like a more all around vise for me – just my opinion. I have to agree that the price is outrageous on both the 4000 and the Barracuda. You can get very functional vises for less. However, I don’t find the price prohibitive.
