    Mark me down as another big Nor-Vise fan.  I started with a Thompson and graduated to a Regal.  I used the Regal for about 3 years and wanted a rotary so I bought a DynaKing Baracuda.  A friend wanted a Regal and he had a Nor-Vise to swap so I tossed in some money and ended up with a Nor-Vise.  As soon as I tried the Nor-Vise I was sold.  I had no learning curve and it was the best vise I’ve ever used.  I ended up selling the Baracuda because it was being wasted sitting on my bench.  I use the retractable bobbins and whenever I have to use a traditional bobbin, it is a major inconvienence.  The dealings I’ve had with Norm have been just as good as the products he sells.  Great guy, super products.

    Robert,

    I agree with Will as for using Veniard dyes for getting consistent, quality results.

    I’m afraid that my rods would underwhelm you.

    While I’m new to this board, I’ve been tying for about ten years and I have a ton of “stuff”.
