Finally I've started using loop to connect my fly line and my "fishing life" changes completely, even if I'm 14.000 Kms far from US!!!!
Greatest accesory available -

This leader resist knots and tangles and saves you a fortune on tapered leaders. I have used the same one for over ten years. I just ordered another for a second rod & reel combo.
Shrink Tubes Don't Shrink! -
The braided leaders are just fine, but I was disappointed in the plastic shrink tube sleeves. I couldn't get them to shrink properly for a tight fit to cover and protect the end of the braided leader. I ended up using some glue.
Quick and Easy -

I was a bit fearful at first, as a new fly fisherman, to venture this far into technical line rigging. Turns out its not that technical at all, took all but 5 minutes to set it up. Also, it definitely does make for more time on the water. If you get a rat's nest in your leader, or even down to your tippet, you can un-loop it, then tend to your mess. Absolutely essential for all flyfishing setups.
Good, but could be improved -

I bought these and have had good success. The instructions are suitable and straightforward. My purchase may be old stock, but I only had 5 loops in my packet. Further, the welded tube that comes with them is RED, not green like the picture. The tube should be white or clear or some other neutral color. Trout, bluegills and bass strike at the red tube that is included and nothing is more frustrating than having your line be more interesting than your fly. Mine was the 2-5wt variety. I hope that the new stock they are getting in is green as pictured as that would be a major improvement.

Disappointed plastic sleeves not fitted on loops Very small piece of plastic sleeve for you to cut up to make own sleeves. Even at sales price dissapointed

They do what's expected of them, the sleeve is tighter than on some other makes. This might seem worse when trying to fit them but a better fit when done.
Useful Loop-to-Loop Connectors -

I still fish some older Orvis fly lines that do not have the welded loops. I have modified and improved these older lines with braided line-to-leader, loop-to-loop connectors. These connectors are easy to install, enable quick change of leaders and have worked without problem over many years’ fishing.
