Jvice 443

I received my new Jvice the other day and I have to say I’m pretty stocked…. actually that’s an understatement, I’ve got a stonking great boner looking at it . There are vices & then there are vices & this is the dogs bollocks with regards to vices. One only has to read the reviews that have been written about it on its website to know this is a true piece of engineering work. What makes the Jvice even more special for me is that its produced in South Africa 30 km from where I grew up in Durban in a place called Kloof by a chap called Jay Smit. Mine is 443 or the four hundred & forty third Jay has manufactured.


I wont bang on about it now but in a month I’ll write a full review on it. To have a look at it more closely then click the links or the image to visit the Jvice website….Cheers pops.

There's always those detractors out there. The Gadget is actually a streamer tail attachment which the Renzetti doesn't have.Stick that in yer pipe n smoke it!!!

I guess you got me, shit.. if I need a crutch to lean on for tying tails then hey this is the vise to get. I guess taking a person's opinion is not too high on your priority list....Can't wait to see other peoples ideas come off that j vise...

Actually I do take people opinions highly...Its just that I have found that its always the ones that find fault in something are always the ones that stay anonymous.

Sure you have your opinion and that's what makes this world go round.. The Jvice is is definitely not the best vice out there but for my needs and the budget I had its the fuckin bollocks in my eyes. Plus I get to support a fellow countryman at the same time.

I've used the Renzetti several times and I found it a fantastic vice to tie on but like everything else on this planet everyone has their own tastes and the Jvice had features that appealed to me.Until you've used this vice then maybe you should keep your opinions to yourself "anonymous"

That's a pretty interesting setup. You can accessorize your ass off it looks like! It looks good to me although it's out of my $$ range these days.

It looks well though out and the jaws look like they will hang on to about anything you stick in there. Will have to watch the videos to get the real juice.

LMAO, mine came in last week (Wednesday, I got number 444 in red. I got the streamer attachment as well as the midge jaws. (don't tell anyone but I trout fish once and a while). It's a really over engineered piece of art and an amazing vice to tie on. Jay is great to deal with.
