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.
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.
The whip finisher Is a must have tool. And very easy to spot on the table .If you don't have one you need to get one.
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.
