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.,Over the years, I have tried many different indicators. All of them have draw backs. Some are simply too heavy for light line trout fishing, many require that you remove the fly to put the indicator on, and others (ball and toothpicks) cause tangles. This design has solved each of those problems. They are easy to put on (five or six quick half turns prevent them from sliding), they cause a minimum of tangles, and the light weight minimizes any effects on your cast.
However, they are far from perfect. In only a few cases have the foam pieces split, but the little rubber inserts go fairly regularly. I have gone through an entire bag of them in a weekend. My guess is that the rubber may age. The group that failed on me stayed in my vest over the Winter. Finally, the price is outrageous. A container of the putty style indicator stuff lasted me five years. I have gone through as many as three bags of these things in a season. If you make minimum wage, they aren't for you. If you can afford them, they are the best I have found.,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.,The great things about these is that you can change the depth with out it starting to slide on your leader like stick on indicators do. I agree with Wooly. Five turns solves the problem of it falling off and sliding entirely. These are by far the best indicators you can use, once you know how to use them.,Excellent bite visual indicator. Easy to put on line and I like the reverseable colors to accommodate water colors and sunlight.
