      Be warned - 3/23/2015

      Be warned...if you are expecting the indicators to be the same bright fluorescent colours, as shown on the picture on the website, you will be very disappointed. The latest version is far more dowdy and not as easy to see on the water; some might actually prefer this newer version reckoning it might be less likely to spook the fish. The decision is yours, but these Skips are not as pictured.

      better strike indicators are available - 3/21/2015

      I am a long-time Orvis fan. The Skips strike indicators are a rare disappointment to me. First they are kind of expensive; they arrived ""unassembled"" so you have to put the little rubber band in place. The band is fragile and I broke one of them trying to assemble it. They also don't hold up well on the water when you adjust the location a few times the rubber band breaks. There are much better strike indicators available. Sadly Orvis has fewer options.

      Great concept - Broke much too soon - 9/24/2014

      After only 3 or 4 times of use - the rubber portion broke - rendering it useless. I still have one more from the package which I will use. Works long as it works.

      I have been a dry fly fisherman for over 50 years. Nymph fishing is new to me, and the Orvis videos were a great help. They introduced me to the Skips Turn-On Indicators. I used a combination of the indicators with several Orvis beaded nymphs and caught two 14 inch browns and a 12 inch rainbow the first time out!!!!!

      Picked these up for some early season nymphing on my local brook. Easy to attach, easy to adjust, easy to see on the water. I'll be picking up more of these.

      Strike Indicators - 10/8/2013

      No doubt these are the best Strike Indicators on the market. They are easy to use and ultra sensitive. Makes trout fishing more of a pleasure.

      Skips Turn-On Indicators - 6/19/2013
      By: from Barry Co., Michigan

      This by far the best small indicator I have used over spooky trout, I love the fact that it wont kink my leader and Its easy to attach, remove, and adjust depth on the smallest of tippet sizes.

      Nice product - 8/31/2012
      By: from Basalt, CO

      This is an excellant, easy to use product and I have had good luck with it. The only thing that keeps it from being 5 stars is the durability. While none have cracked yet, it just seems like the will fail at some point.

      Was it me? - 6/13/2012
      By: from NYC

      I don't know if it was my casting style, but I've never broken off a fly on a cast before using this product. While using this product I broke off approximately 4 flies within the 15th to 20th casts. The tippet always broke at the indicator causing me to lose both the fly and the indicator The tippet seems to be weakened by the twisting motion of this indicator. I wouldn't recommend this product for making lots of long casts but if your strictly drifting and mending you should be fine.
