I've always used a piece of inner tube to straighten leaders and tippets. I've had the same piece of inner tube for 35 years. This is more convenient, because I can clip it to my vest. It works great!
Great Product -
This thing is sweet! Just got mine in the mail. Nice design and with the "zinger" looks good on the vest. Also tested it on a spare leader I had laying around and it worked exactly like it should.

One of the fly fishing essentials. You absolutely need this tool to heat up and stretch your line and leaders straight.

This is an effective and simple tool for straightening leaders, especially new packaged leaders before the first use. You could straighten leaders using the friction of your hands, but doing so is not as effective (or comfortable) as using this tool. Straight, coil-free leaders greatly improve your presentation and casting ease. For best results, slowly pull the leader through the straightener, from the fly line end to the tippet end, while pressing both sides of the tool closed with your opposite hand. Hold the leader straight for a few seconds to retain the profile and to lock-in the coil-free memory. Well worth your investment.
