Default Bench rest

I am looking to purchase a bench rest/vice. What do you guys got? Any advice to a fellow member looking to gain some information before spending the cash? Thanks

For shooting I have a Caldwell Lead Sled Solo, that has a curved support to allow using a 30 mag without hitting the bench. You need to add sandbags or weight because it will jump using an AR.

I also have the Caldwell Rock Jr which allows more movement when sighting. It can also be used with a handgun.

I don't have a bench vise, but the Tiptons are decent from what I've heard.

I use a fold out table and some sand bags every now and again I use sand sock just in front of the rear sling swivel. I tried a lead sled but I didn't like it, with sand bags it allows me to feel all the recoil, and I still need to use all my fundamentals. Because the rifle is more free to move around.
