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.

I love this little gadget because I can straighten out leaders that have been rolled up in a package and aren't landing correctly.
The leader straightener was not of the quality i expected for the following reasons. The horizontal stitching is poor, the top half of the leader straightener is not concentric with the bottom half, i.e. when the straightener is in the closed position the bottom overlaps the top! The internal material appears to be over sized for the back, making it have a "baggy and rippled" look. Maybe I bought the new learner employee piece.
