Well, I did a bunch of research, especially in the archives of this forum, and decided on the DK Barracuda Jr. Trekker as my first real vise. I've been tying for 6-7 years but only on the cheapie vise that came with my orvis begginning flytier kit. I just wanted to see if anyone had any commentary, suggestions, etc. about this vise. I've already ordered it from my local shop, so don't try to change my mind.

I don't own the Trekker, but I do have the regular Barracuda and absolutely love it. If it's anything like the quality of mine, you'll be very happy with it.

I have an old Dyna King squire which is not true rotary, but has been a workhorse vise for years...good product.

I've been using a regular Baracuda since they first became available and I love it. The Trekker is a smaller version of it with the same terrific jaws Dyna King is famous for, so I'm certain you will be very happy with it.
