The classic whip finisher with a powder coated ergonomic body. The base of the tool has been sharpened, so that finishing flies and clipping thread can be accomplished with one single tool.
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.
I honestly got this on impulse. I have like 3 whip finishers laying around that work just fine. But, I like having all the stuff match and Loon pretty much owns my desk. This whip finisher is a step above though. The grip makes it easy to hold and it does rotate much easier versus others where if the angle gets wonky, it'll kind of skip when it is spinning around the hook. Great product. Highly recommend.
Love the whip finish tool, it’s clean action and bright yellow signature color make it a must have item. But my favorite part about this tool is the cutter tool on the bottom of the tool. I first saw this from Cheech at Fly Fish Food and always wanted one. Now that it’s in my hands , I use the cutter on my whip finish on every fly.. Thanks Loon strong work.
As a card carrying Gizmo freak,I am compelled to get just about every new fly tying tool on the market so I really didn't need another whip finisher.But need never had anything to do with it. Loon designers have added some sublte touches to this must have bench tool e.g., the hook point on the business end of the finisher is slightly longer than most of the others tools I have which seems to keep the thread from slipping off during the set up and finishing process. The cutter on the end is not unique but a great addition. The easy to locate handle is a big plus although I have so many Loon tools on my bench, I may have to start color coding them something other than yellow. Once again a great bargain for the price.
