Default Nor Vise ??

Hi Guy's ,
Been looking for a while to invest in a new vise ! Would love a Law " they do look very nice indeed" also just noticed a thread on the Jay Red "well made" but now fancy a Nor Vise ?? What do you guy's think and what do you use ?

J

Nor-Vise falls into the "love/hate thing" category. I have friends that have been using it for a few years and will not use anything else, ever. But I also have a friend who pretty much gave his away, he just couldn't get used to it.

If I were to buy one, I'd try to borrow one for a week or two and see how I like it after a few hours of tying.

I've been using a Renzetti traveler for years. There are lots of good vises out there though.

If you tie lots of streamers then go for a Nor vice - personally I just did not get on with it - better to get a normal vice.

A vice you don't hear a lot about over here are Jvice - check em' out.

John,

My pleasure.

As I'm sure you have found, it is certainly NOT just for tying streamer patterns!

I'm sure you have years of pleasure tying with it.

Kind regards

I've been thinking about one of these for while, if anyone hates there's please let me know ;-) I'll make you an offer.
