I tie a lot of patterns that i use dubbing loops a lot and I just recently bought my 1st pair of loon tweezers and i was so impressed i bought a 2nd pair within a week as now i can load both colors of my shrimp patterns dubbing loops and it has cut my tying time for those flies almost in half. It was one of those tools i didnt know i needed until i bought my first pair to try. And there is nothing worse than a tool that dont perform,this one does as i use it on my brushes as well.when i am laying out material and my fat fingers get in the way of straightening or trying to manipulate fibers, it is perfect. The tool i never knew i needed now i have two., as well as most other loon ergo tying tools. Someone was thinking about the tiers. Thanks Loon.
Good for long dubbing loops.
Perfect little gripper for bench work....fly tying, or loading loading fly boxes with those little nymphs too small for fat fingers. Grips by default, not dependent upon your squeezing the tweezer to keep your tying or other materials in your grasp. Great addition to the toolset!
makes loading beads on hooks foolproof, especially the super small stuff!!
Saw these on a Fly Tying video, Cheech Pierce (Fish Food) and was impressed by the way he built multiple material collars with them. Ordered a pair here immediately and it is a great tool for building collars, absolutely! But that was just the start! As a multiple species guide, I tie a lot of flies. I have found that everyday produces a new use for this tool; picking up beads, hooks, dubbing, etc..... I can even pick put dubbing, accurately place materials and I'm sure I will continue to find additional uses. It has speeded my tying and, clearly, improved it!
