From one customer: "By the way, I think the ski vise is an awesome product. I can't see why anyone would choose a clamp type device over your design."
I use the Cinch with the Lasso Clamp all of the time and can't see ever needing a side clamping vise again. With variable ski & snowboard widths, sidewall shapes and faster switching from side to base edge work, which is very secure, the Cinch excels in these areas for me. They are also lighter and can be used for other home/shop projects by the lasso's ability to conform to any shape. They secure any ski type or snowboard by attaching to the brakes and/or bindings. You don't need brake retainers either, but can use them if you prefer.
The Lasso Clamp is an extremely economical and versatile solution for those building their own benches. It also allows you to simplify the construction and increase versatility of home built benches....trust me, I've made several and tried all kinds of options.

There's more info and pictures at the end of the Terminator Stand auction
Of course, if you or anyone else prefers conventional 'old school' vises we sell those as well.
(FYI for the short run, I only have a couple left.)
