    Hi Peter,

    Take a look at the site. You dont have to opt for the base. He sells 3 different clamps too. In terms of wieight there really is much of a muchness between all of them..

    Hi Peter

    I've had my Renzetti master for about fifteen years now and can not fault it in any department. I'll never use another vice.

    The C-clamp is huge and fits almost any table.

    The tube vive can be used on the same C-clamp and it literally weighs only about a hundred grams.

    The J-Vice looks better than it used to but it's definitely not a Renzetti

    Cheers

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    I have found white/clear ear buds are cheaper- less dental fees - than sucker sticks. Only problem is the weighting, I battle to get cones for salty buggers etc, so I have started tying them with dumbells.
    If you are prepared to live with thses small hassles , you will go a long way.

    Ear buds are the devil !!
    They crumple under the pressure of the wraps and Makes getting the leader through impossible !!
    Pen refills and sucker sticks are way better
    But the "proper " tubes are cheap nowadays enuff tube and connective tubing for 25 flys is R50
