Okay, finally saw the HMH TVR vise in person and for sale. This was at the NH Fly Fishing Show, Saturday. The vise is, to me, impressive and seems well done. I'm no expert by any means! There was no bobbin holder or material clip and I didn't think to ask until I was halfway home. The "regular" version is $490, the "presentation" version, with a shiny brass base, is $680. I almost got one, but without tying on it, even with my limited skills, is needed before I plunk down hard money. You can cll HMH to order one. If you do, let me know how you like it!
