I recently broke the tip of the jaw off my renzetti :o . I love that vice and now I'll see how well they back up their product. I'll keep you guys posted. I have had to resort to my old cheap vise that I've had for about 25 years. no rotory feature, no bobbin cradle, no nothin!! :( just holds the hook. man have I gotten spoiled with my renzetti!! needless to say it has thrown a wrench in my tying. it is nowhere as efficient and it takes forever to tie a fly. I tied a clouser on it and had to take it in and out of the vise, what a pain! I'll push on with the old one until I hear from renzetti. I will be really disappointed if they dont replace it, that vise was not cheap! for that kind of money I should not have any problems.

thanks john, I'll definately keep you guys posted on the vise situation. that is why I posted it so guys would know wheather or not they back up their products. I would think or hope anyway that a company that reputable would do so, we'll see.

Joe,

 

Renzetti is the Mercedes. They should respond pronto. IMHO their rep should personally deliver the replacement jaws and maybe give you a massage :)

 

Jonn,

 

Take a long hard look at the Danvise before you pay 3-4 times more for the Eyetalian sport model. Al Beatty's book on rotary tying reviews a lot of the true rotaries out there while it also fills us in on what rotary tying really is. Well worth $15 to $20 especially if you are thinking about spending over $200 on a vise. ;)

 

My 2 cents.

If you go on the cabelas website, take a look at the 17 customer reviews concerning the Danvise. No thanks............I think I will pass on this piece of equipment.

 

Jonn,

 

Anyone can write a review for Cabelas including a competitor under an alias. The Guys at FlyFishOhio have a different view. I put my faith in them when I bought one.

You'll find the Peak there also. The $145 Peak scored top mark with 4.40 though the Danvise was not far behind at 4.10. It is a good site that everyone should bookmark.
