    Doug:

    Why? Cam Traveler was the worst rotary vise I ever owned. The jaws fell apart (exploded in my hands) after two years and they wouldn't help me in any way.

    Yeah looking for a new travel vise.... I sold my MP Swiss Master vise and don't want to haul my J-vice as I like to leave it set up on my fly tying desk at home. What would you suggest? I may also go Regal with the Stainless Steel Jaws....

    I for one love the Regal! I have all the jaws to include the Stainless steel. I bought the rotary with the big game jaws and found that my stainless steel jaws fit into the rotary base. Works great!!. Of course I have the pedestal base and you might not want that extra weight for travelling.

    I still travel with the J Vise.

    That said, I also still have my Griffin Montana Mongoose. Fits in a little plastic case like a pistol case and comes with both a clamp and a pedestal. That said, the jaw durability was not great, which was why I replaced it with the J Vise.

    I had never paid attention to the J Vise, but looked it up based on your post, Walter. Very nice features, especially the add on items to the basic kit. Is it sold in the U.S.? I don't care to order from South Africa if I decide to purchase. That looks like the only alternative.

    They are only sold direct, and no they're not cheap. I have put something like 25,000 hooks through my pro jaws and there is only one noticeable ding. Doug also ties on one, and Byron might as well?

    If price is a factor I was able to get it down to what I thought was doable.
    I ordered just the vice with shaft and bobbin rest. I had Jay turn down the shaft from 10mm to 3/8" so I could then use my existing shaft pedestal and or my vise shaft C-clamps. I can't remember for sure but I don't think Jay charged for turning the shaft.
    I also would mention...note the spelling of "vice" it might cause an email to get sent to spam...it happened.

    Yes, it is pricey, but has some very nice features. Since I am not a vise collector or a commercial tier, I think I'll stick with my trusty Regal rotary. Thanks guys.

    IMHO - the Jvice is the best vise on the market, bar none....... Quality craftsmanship all the way!

    Like Wally, I have the Jvice Pro-jaws in addition to the standard jaw set...... and fyi, as to the topic of this thread ---- I ended up getting a great buy on a Snowbee Waldron vise as my new travel vise. So far, I am very impressed and it will work out perfect for travel with a c-clamp. It's a nice compact set-up....
