Works like I hoped it would,

"I've always used a piece of inner tube to straighten leaders and tippets. I've had the same piece of inner tube for 35 years. This is more convenient, because I can clip it to my vest. It works great!"

"This thing is sweet! Just got mine in the mail. Nice design and with the "zinger" looks good on the vest. Also tested it on a spare leader I had laying around and it worked exactly like it should."

Excellent Leader Straightener,
August 14, 2013
By: FarandFine
from Alexandria, VA
"This is an effective and simple tool for straightening leaders, especially new packaged leaders before the first use. You could straighten leaders using the friction of your hands, but doing so is not as effective (or comfortable) as using this tool. Straight, coil-free leaders greatly improve your presentation and casting ease. For best results, slowly pull the leader through the straightener, from the fly line end to the tippet end, while pressing both sides of the tool closed with your opposite hand. Hold the leader straight for a few seconds to retain the profile and to lock-in the coil-free memory. Well worth your investment."

Dissapointed,
October 17, 2012
By: akm3434
"The leader straightener was not of the quality i expected for the following reasons. The horizontal stitching is poor, the top half of the leader straightener is not concentric with the bottom half, i.e. when the straightener is in the closed position the bottom overlaps the top! The internal material appears to be over sized for the back, making it have a "baggy and rippled" look. Maybe I bought the new learner employee piece."

"I used the straightener on a tapered leader which I had left wrapped around a reel; it worked. The finer the taper, the more effectively it straightened the line."

Straighten Up And Fly Right,
September 21, 2011
By: ShootingStar
from Salisbury UK
"I leave leader and tippet on the line at the end of a session, storing it on the reel. Both can acquire a memory, particularly if I do not use the rel for some time, or if cold.
This neat little gadget straightens leader and tippet in no time, without the need to get friction burns on my fingers from pulling the leader and tippet through.
should last for years as well.
