from Polonia, WI
"It is really nice finishing a fly and not having it come apart while doing so. that has been my problem but not anymore as long as I remember how the Whip Finisher goes. I keep the directions close at hand for now. it's really easy to use and does a super job. that's the opinion of a amateur tier."
"This tool is just okay. I found that it didn't rotate very smoothly and it drove me crazy. Seemed like they needed to spend a little time polishing the metal parts that rub together. I tried several other of the same kind in the Orvis store and the all seemed about the same. I exchanged it for the Wasatch Whip Finisher which was the same price. I would highly recommend the Wasatch tool, but not this one."

Review 9 for Extended-Reach Whip Finisher
May 29, 2009
"I've been tying flies for about three years and this whip finisher has been the best addition to my tool box! Previously, I would finish the fly with a few half hitches and be done with it. Now, I'm able to "finish" my flies with ease and a professional look! It's definitely made tying flies enjoyable!"
"In my youth I worked in fly shops and tied flies for sale. I tried several styles of whip finisher's (and also finished by hand with no tool), but I always found this to be the best design finishing tool. When the "Extended-Reach" size became available, I switched to using it for all but the smallest flies. The Extended-Reach size is easier and more comfortable."
