    These indicators work as advertised, but I still had issues with a double fly set up getting wrapped around the indicator, which is probably a tribute to my casting more than the product (although a simple corkie and toothpick works better for me)

    What's not to like? - 2/2/2014

    A great solution that let's you get the most out of nymph fishing days! I nipped the jam stop off of mine because they lock in place so well without them. Putting them on, moving them on the leader, and taking them off with cold fingers after sunset are all a piece of cake. I try to use the smallest size for the conditions, but in big riffles or tough light, the larger ones keep you fishing!

    Good Indicator! - 1/20/2014

    I am not a fan of indicators but as far as indicators go, this one I found to be the best. The Thingamabobber stays in place and I never loose them unlike some other twist on kind.

    I have used thingamabobbers for years. The addition of the jam stop works well.

    Big Improvement on previous model - 9/17/2013

    I finally managed to get a bit indicator that wont fall off or slip down the cast. Excellent product.

    I like to use Thingamabobbers as strike indicators when I need a little wieght to get my nymph down because they float so well. The only drawback with the old style is that they leave a kink in your leader. The Jam-Stop Thingamabobbers eliminate that problem and still allow for quick and easy depth adjustment. A positive improvement.
