Good visibility and sticking power -

Previous strike indicators I've use have either required knotting to the line or have had a tendency to come off while I cast. These avoid both issues and the dual colour provides great visibility.
gone with the cast -

I've only tried them a few times, since I got them. But I've already lost one on a cast. No idea where it went! Just disappeared.

Excellent bite visual indicator. Easy to put on line and I like the reverseable colors to accommodate water colors and sunlight.

I have tried several strike indicators. They all slide or I can't remove them. These stay where you put them and are easy to remove or move when you need too.

easy to put on, adjust up or down and remove. Works as advertised. Large size is easy to see, floats the line nicely.
Design Faults -
By: Namrap from Blue Springs, MO
I was trout fishing on Labor day and purchased a package of Turn-On strike indicators. They were a bit expensive but I figured they were reusable so the price was not to bad. On all 4 that came in the package the rubber band that held them together broke after 7-10 casts. I went thru all 4 within 2-3 hours.

Turn On Strike Indicators -
Easy to put on the line, easy to move and stays put whilst casting. An excellent product.
Not for little guys -
To start I want to say that I would recommend this product to a friend, if the product was used in certain circumstances. The circumstances are that you cant use these indicators with super fine tippets or leaders, 6x or 7x. If you twist 3 times they slide down to the tip, if you twist 4 times, POP! they break. I do think Orvis should advise clients of this when they buy it. I will also tell you that Orvis did refund my purchase with no questions. Great customer service.
