Football Foam Strike Indicators
Good when you get the knack
These are not my favorite indicators, but they have their place. They are not easy to use. I lost several of these indicators before I figured out how to attach them securely. The trick for me was to twist three turns at the top and three turns in the opposite direction at the bottom of the indicator. With this method, I've never lost one of these. If you get them on with this method, about the only way to get them off is to pull out the rubber strip, remove the line, and reinsert the strip, which is a little tricky. I like the indicators visibility, and I can add this indicator without removing the fly (which is when I use it most). I also feel they land a little lighter than some other indicators. Not my normal go to indicator, but like to have a few with me.

Lost more indicators than fish
I've tried a number of different strike indicators. The "foam footballs" are, in my opinion, less than desirable product. They come off easily and are priced beyond reason for such a poor product. I see them floating down the river all day long.

Good for the price and easy to install. It was my first time using this product on my last outing and when I applied it to my line it was durable and stayed where i wanted it to stay but when I started casting, after a few swings it flew off my line (this maybe my inexperience of installing it on my line, as it may also be because I installed it on my 9ft tippet). For the price and ease of use I would purchase this product again and spend more time experimenting it.
