    This whip finish tool allowed me to reach the mid and rear sections of larger salmon and steelhead flies. It is quite nice to secure the sections other than the head of the fly.

    It is really nice finishing a fly and not having it come apart while doing so. that has been my problem but not anymore as long as I remember how the Whip Finisher goes. I keep the directions close at hand for now. it's really easy to use and does a super job. that's the opinion of a amateur tier.

    I have another whip finisher the I found too much trouble to use. This design make it possible for even fumble fingers to do an acceptable job.

    Excellent whip finisher, well made, very easy to use and a quality product. On the back of that have ordered more Orvis tools.

    Easy Whip Finish - 7/9/2011

    I can never seem to hand tie the whip finish on large flies, but the Extended Reach Whip Finisher gets the job done quickly and professionally. I keep an extra one in my RV for tying when I travel.

    This is one of the most important tools to have if you tie flies. It is super easy to work, and it even comes with instructions. A true must have to your fly tying kit

    Pretty Good - 1/26/2010

    This tool is just okay. I found that it didn't rotate very smoothly and it drove me crazy. Seemed like they needed to spend a little time polishing the metal parts that rub together. I tried several other of the same kind in the Orvis store and the all seemed about the same. I exchanged it for the Wasatch Whip Finisher which was the same price. I would highly recommend the Wasatch tool, but not this one.
