Default New Vise advise

Hi all,
I am looking at getting a new vice and was looking for some info and guidance.
I am looking at the Dyna king but I am a bit confused. I see it listed as the Trekker, the Barracuda Jr and the Barracuda Jr Trekker. are they all the same vise? the write up is all the same on all three. I am a bit worried about the plastic screws to adjust the settings on it. I am also open to other vise info and direction. I mainly tie Bass Flies from size 4 to 2/0. I have also looked into the Peak, Renzetti and the Anvil Atlas. I would like to get a true rotary and my Budget is about $300. I am upgrading from a knock off Regal type vise so anything will be a huge upgrade.
Thanks in advance to any help

Firstly, I would recomend hmh, well priced, well made and exceptional service. I can't say enough good things about them.

Second, go to stone river. They'll let you road test the whole inventory which is valuable.

Thirdly, don't forget, no matter how much you pay or how cool they look, they only have to hold a hook.

Renzetti. No doubt about it. You will not be disappointed.
Great quality and very affordable.
If Stone River Outfitters sells 10 vises, 9 of them are Renzetti.

Default X2 on Renzetti

I've got two older Renzetti Travelers, non-cam models. One is set up in my tying room, the other in my travel kit. I've had one of them since the early eighties. It does everything I need. I tie 3/0 salmon & steelhead flies, and down to size 24's with no problems. Had to change the jaws a couple years ago as I wore them out. Cost me $40 with shipping. The second vise's jaws are like new. If you watch online forums like this one, Washington FF or Speypages, and even eBay or Amazon, you can usually find one for under $100. Great little vise.

I would definitely stay away from anything with plastic parts.
