Thanks in advance.

The Nor Vise works, but it works mostly for plastic tubings where you can cut some of the back end off after the fly is finished. I found some cheat methods for lined metal tubes, but it isn't the greatest tool for them and you get similar slippage problems that you get with other vises with my Nor- cheats.

The renzetti slips, but for lined metal tubes, it's a better tool.

Oh yeah, apply "in my opinion" to the above.
