Loon Tying Tools Set
An impressive array of tools in one box , no matter the size of fingers no matter how delicate or rough you are with your fly tying tools, these are one size fits all.
Contained in each pack are the following Five tools:-
- Ergo All Purpose Scissors
- Ergo All Purpose Bobbin
- Ergo Bodkin
- Ergo Whip Finisher
- Ergo Hackle Plier
These all come in a heavy duty travel case.
Scissors, these have an excellent fine pointed blade that is seriously sharp from day one. I found the handles more than contend with my large hands.
The bodkin is very sharp and precise , teasing out dubbing easily from a box or tweaking a body fur to add a little more thickness to a caddis nymph is a breeze.
The bobbin holder, offers up an easy to load tough everyday tool that’s not going to let you down , a bit like a JCB and coming in the same colour way you could literally throw this tool at any project on the vise and there would be no issues , it will just keep on going.
Whip finisher As I don’t tend to use much as I tend just to use my fingers, but I do like how this heavy duty one has a nice torque on the thread especially for tying larger patterns which I tend to lean towards these days.
Hackle pliers are again another tool I have had a hate hate relationship over the many years with, this is certainly one I could at least work with and could see myself continuing to use as it grips without too much tension so when tying soft hackles on spider patterns down to size 18 it’s not damaging the hackle.
All told these tools offer something robust ergonomic and no nonsense , for a beginner or an upgrade from a first set of tools these will certainly fit the bill without draining your wallet like some of the brands out there.
On a further note having some feedback from a customer who has arthritis these have been the best tools he has ever used and almost thought they were designed especially for this.
Whether deliberate or accidental this is certainly a benefit for anyone in this position.
I certainly would recommend this tool set and I believe it is excellent value for money.
