Renzetti Traveler 2300 Review
Renzetti Traveler, saying that name to a fly tier would be comparable to saying Ford or Chevy to a truck enthusiast. In this Renzetti Traveler 2300 review we will be going over some of the great features of this fly tying vise.
About Rezentti Inc.
Andy Renzetti began his journey into the world of manufacturing fly tying vises and tools in the early 1970’s. What started as a desire to make a better quality vise than what he could find on the market for himself morphed into a hobby of making vises and tools and then ramped up to a full time operation in a three car garage by 1978 and then 10 years later in 1988 Renzetti Inc. was born and the manufacturing facility that they operate out of today was built.
Quality and Warranty
The Renzetti Traveler 2300 series vises are the most popular ones we sell at Sea-Run Fly & Tackle. They offer a high-end performance at a very reasonable price. These vises are 100% USA made and carry a lifetime warranty that quite frankly you’ll probably never need to use because these vises are built solid.
The features offered with these vises, coupled with the quality and price are all what make these such a popular choice of tying vises.
Locking Cam with Fine Tune Adjustment Knob
The locking cam with fine tune adjustment knob allow for the tiniest of #28 dry fly hooks up to a large 4/0 big game saltwater hook to be tied on without concern of movement when pressure is applied, there’s nothing more frustrating at the tying bench than having a hook move when you’re putting the finish touches on a masterpiece of a fly.
A True Rotary Vise
The Traveler 2300’s are a true rotary vise, this means that the fly, when rotated stays at the same horizontal position or does not change in angle even when spun 360 degrees. Having the true rotary feature is so very handy when wrapping a rib or a body material up the hook or for viewing the look all sides of the fly making sure proportions are perfect.
C-Clamp or Pedestal Base
The Traveler 2300’s are available in either a c-clamp or pedestal base the pedestal base model is our regularly stocked item as they allow the vise to be used practically anywhere, the pedestals have two areas that allow beads to be stored while tying without having them roll off where you are tying flies.
The vise also comes with a bobbin cradle this allows for a place to rest the thread and bobbin out of the way at a times when you maybe doing other jobs for the tying of the fly such as cutting or preparing materials.
We stock two different models in the 2300 Traveler, the 2003 and the 2303 these are basically identical as far as features and function the 2303 has a black anodized finish.
In conclusion of our review of the Renzetti Traveler 2300 series are a spectacular product that will provide a lifetime of fly tying enjoyment.
