I noticed that Mike (boarmountain) commented on this vise and I saw it at the Marlboro show and it looked like it can handle anything...good price also... besides Mike, has anyone any comments or heard things about this vise..It is made by Thompson.

Here's a review from Al Campbell:

I agree with what Al said. A shop near me asked me to try one over a weekend and see what I thought. OK vise for trout flies but lacking for saltwater sizes. I stick with the Barracuda.

I read the review and I can't disagree more. I have tied flies on hooks up to 4/0 and have not had any slipping. In tying situations ,the thread would break before the hook slipped.
