Turn-On Strike Indicator
Waste of Money
I bought these to see how they would hold on 6x tippet as that is what I usually fish and the only thing I've found that won't slide are the pinch on indicators which can't be moved. I tried these and they did stay in place and were easy to see. Unfortunately, I found that these have to be the worst indicator I've ever used for causing tangles in my line. Additionally as others have mentioned, the rubber bands broke very quickly. I also lost one or 2 just from coming off.
The problems I had were enough that I'll keep using the pinch on indicators until I can find something that works without issues.

Simple but unreliable
Used it for the first time about a month ago, they work great, love the way its so easy to apply on and they don't slip. Also with the choice of two colors you choose what you like best. I would totally use these but the only down side is that the rubber band does not hold well. After about five times of using one the rubber band begins to wear and tear apart, even with the extra rubber bands that come with the package it did not last any longer. I wouldn't mind repurchasing these if the rubber band was updated to a more durable band but for now I'll keep tying other indicators til I find the right one.

Poor design and quality!
Used 4 on a 6 hour float trip. They broke apart untwisted and slipped and the rubber piece broke on 2 of them. Large size could not support a bead head prince with two #4 shot. Ended up borrowing a thingamabober for the last third of the trip. Don't waste your money!

NOT VERY DURABLE
Used the strike indicators on big water (Missouri River). Within 20 minutes it was breaking apart at the seam of the two colors. I didn't bother putting on a second one. It was highly visible.
