vise ?

Looking for a rotary vice. I have a vise now, a Regal pedestal with two sets of jaws that I tie on now, but would like to add a rotary if I can find one at the right price. Any suggestions?

I love my peak rotary. I've had it for only 3 or 4 years, but no issues yet.

Do you tie much of hooks 2/0 & up?  If you do, does it hold them well? 
 
I'm not in the market for a vise, but a friend is & the peak rotary is the one he's looking at, he'll be mostly tying bigger streamers.  I have no experience with peak.

I don't get up quite that big. I've gone up to 2 in a B10s and some unnamed mustad stainless hook. My tube fly adapter is pretty thick too. Holds everything I've put in it nicely.

5/0 gamakatsu octopus trout pellet custom streamer for you D-nymph. It will catch all of the trouts. I'd say this hook is pretty close to as big as I'd go in this vise. Especially since there are no grooves in the Jaws. Held well enough to spin that little clump of hair though. Didn't slip one bit. But I did only have 140d thread in my bobbin holder.

I picked up the regal rotary. Maybe sell the old regal. And upgrade?

Cool, thanks.  For whatever reason I can't see the photo.
