When it comes to fine tippet material and eyes of flies I am technically blind which makes changing anything on the river next to impossible. Its only just possible at home under maginifacation without a breeze.
So these tippets are a great idea, they save time and effort and mean you can get on with fishing without the farting about that you traditionally had to do.
They do cost a lot more than the DIY option, but trust me when I tell you you will thank the day you switched, they make life so much easier.,I use these tippets with braded and furled leaders, and thier performance is great. I have yet to have a break-off when hooked up with a fish, I believe the braid must help out as a "shock absorber". They are simple to attach, simple to remove from the spool, and cast nicely.
Yes, they are a bit pricey, but when I think of the pain and suffering of tying these myself...,These are a bit expensive, but I wouldn't be without them on the stream. I primaruly use the 5X and 6X, but have thrown streamers with the 3X. Paired with the braided leaders and some furled leaders I have, they are easy to control and turn over wonderfully. You can extend the life of the Bimini twist by becoming skilled in knot tying and adding more tippet as you go. Both the Mirage and the Super Strong work equally well, but I have an easier time tying with the Super Strong.,These tippets are pricy but they are worth it. They reallly help protect fine tippet material with larger trout. The amount of stretch because of the braided section is perfect. I never fish without them.,Using bimini twists in building leaders for big game like tarpon is common. The knots are 100% and double the line. But whoever came up with the idea to use them at the 3x-7x range should be knighted! I like both braided and furled leaders quite a bit, so having these pre-tied biminis on a spool, all ready to attach to a braided or furled butt section with simple overhand knots is just brilliant! You can do it in the dark (probably). Because the bimini tippets are thicker at the line end and taper to the fly end, leaders turn over better than with just a length of tippet tied to the butt section.
