Garbage Whip Finisher -
By: Montana111 from Bozeman
I bought this whip finisher from Orvis and was very disappointed with it. I did not have a chance to look at it before I bought it (online). It is alright as far as a whip finisher goes. The tip on the finisher does not come to a point (like a cone) but maintains its cylinder shape and girth without tapering down. This causes a "drop" in your thread when finishig the fly as opposed to it finishing from a point. This does not provide nearly as fine and neat of a finish as comparable finishers of the same price.

I am new to tying but this tool was easy to learn with. Works well.

This whip finish tool allowed me to reach the mid and rear sections of larger salmon and steelhead flies. It is quite nice to secure the sections other than the head of the fly.

It is really nice finishing a fly and not having it come apart while doing so. that has been my problem but not anymore as long as I remember how the Whip Finisher goes. I keep the directions close at hand for now. it's really easy to use and does a super job. that's the opinion of a amateur tier.

The extended-reach whip finisher is a great design that fits my hand, spins smoothly and improves my ability to tie quality flies.

I have another whip finisher the I found too much trouble to use. This design make it possible for even fumble fingers to do an acceptable job.

Excellent whip finisher, well made, very easy to use and a quality product. On the back of that have ordered more Orvis tools.
Easy Whip Finish -
I can never seem to hand tie the whip finish on large flies, but the Extended Reach Whip Finisher gets the job done quickly and professionally. I keep an extra one in my RV for tying when I travel.
