I’ve done my whip finishes by hand for 35 years, but some joint problems have made it harder to do. The Ergo whip finisher is a great tool. I especially like it for finishing flies with lots of material right up to the hook eye.
Comfortable in my hand, smooth operation and I love the cutter on the end. Touchdown!!
Smaller handle then the others I'm used to using but I love it. Even comes with the sharpened edge so no need to sharpen myself.
I have a few other whips and they did the job just fine and was wondering if the cutting edge on the bottom would really change my idea of what a whip would do and again, like all loon products, I was pleasantly surprised when I got it and how well it performed.
Going from a single stem whip finisher to this has been awesome. It fits better in my hands and I have more control.
