Front Vise or Tail Vise?

If I am limited on choosing one or the other, which one should I choose? I know it depends on what I plan on doing, but speaking in general terms, what is more common to have?

Thanks

I'd definetley go for the front vise as a priority. It is the most versatile (and most commonly seen). It will do what you want with a minimum of improvisation until time & circumstances allow the addition of a tail vise.
