Rotating Whip Finisher
Very easy to use once you watch a youtube video. i had a Whip finisher that came with a fly tying kit, but it kept loosing the thread when i would spin it. i spent like an hour watching videos and everyone's whip finisher had a C-style catch at the end for the thread, while mine was an S. So i bought one(actually 2 since there was some weird back order but i put one in each of my fresh and salt water tying sets)
overall gave it 4 stars because it was small, would have liked it to be bigger but it doesnt take up any room

Used for years
This tool along with a great pair of scissors is a must. I work as a mechanic, so my fingers are rough, making it near impossible to hand finish my flies. I tie all my flies and have used this tool all the way down to a 28 hook. Once I learned to use this tool it is as simple as can be and I get a tight finish. I have been using the same finisher for 10+ yrs.

a must have
this tool is a must have for any serious fly tier! it enables you to make a whip finish incredibly fast and easy! its a little tricky at first to figure it out but once you get it, you are good to go! I wont tie flies without it.

A rotating whip finisher is a must have for any fly tier. You might find it confusing in the beginning but once you get a hang of it you will love it. You can find good instructions on how to use it on youtube.
