Excellent at helping to form small, tapered dubbing loops especially when splitting thread on smaller flies. Much more efficient for those tying a bunch of box builders.
The long length makes it very useful for managing a long section of materials to slip into a dubbing loop.
This thing has been an absolute godsend when it comes to composite loops. Has made the process of picking up and placing materials into a loop a breeze. Also, if someone tries to steal any of your tying materials, it’s works great as a shiv. Just saying.
If you tie collars for any time of streamer, this tool is for you. Rather then trying to palmer a marabou collar on, get the length perfect by adjusting this tweezer at the length you want, trim away the stem and put the marabou fibers into a dubbing loop. Perfect collar everytime. Great quality tool, as one would expect from Loon.
Bought this solely for composite loops but have found it has many other uses. Has good tension and holds a variety of materials in place. Love the yellow handle so it’s always easy to find.
