For the price I don't think you can beat this vise. There are certainly fancier and more expensive vises available, but this one does the job well. The rotation is smooth; it seems to hold its adjustments well without a lot of fidgeting. It's well-built and compact and holds a variety of hook sizes very well. So far I'm not bothered by the plastic ends on the adjustment screws, but if they break off that will be a pain. The pedestal base is a little smaller than I'd like, but that's a trade-off, as it makes it easier to carry with you. It does come with both pedestal and clamp, but the stem is really too short to make the clamp all that useful, and there's no option to extend the stem. If you keep the screw that adjusts the rotary tension loose, the vise head will move up and down a bit. Tighten the screw down, and it won't move at all. It doesn't come with a bobbin cradle, but i never use one anyway. These are, in my opinion, very minor issues. I bought it as a spare/backup/travel vise, and it is perfect in those respects, especially given the price. If this were the only vise i had to tie on, I'd still be satisfied.
