Fits in hand well and provides good control
Because of nerve damage caused by radiation treatment, I have lost feeling and fine motor skills in my right arms and hand (I am right handed). The handle design of the Loon whip finish tool has allowed me to continue to finish my flies with much more control. Thank you for this tool as it has allowed me to keep tying without the frustration.
Overall pretty happy with this whip finisher, the shaft spins freely in the handle, and you can use it for whip finishing, so does it's job. Two minor issues: The first is that the curve which holds your thread in place isn't deep enough, so I had the thread slip out a couple of times, this requires correction. The second is that the "cutting" tool at the bottom of the tool isn't very sharp, I haven't actually been able to cut any thread larger then 10/0 with it.
The size and feel are good but the curve on the wire doesn't hold well. The thread seems to slip out way too easily.
