Looking for a vise you can pass on to the grandkids one day? You won’t find many finer than the Special Edition Master vise from Renzetti. Featuring all the goodies that have made the company’s Masters vise a classic, the Special Edition Master incorporates a hard-anodized aluminum body, arm and base in a stylish black finish. This is a process usually reserved for high-end fly reels or other equipment that frequently comes into contact with the elements.
Is it overkill for a vise? Maybe. Then again, a hard-anodized finish will extend its life for years, especially in harsh tying environments created when sol-vents, glues and epoxies are applied. The Special Edition Master vise features a built-in material clip, bobbin cradle and jaws that hold hooks ranging from #28 to 10/0. MSRP is $729.95. www.renzetti.com.
