    This eye threader is the best money I've spent. Being 50 and fighting with tippet is a struggle but this product keeps me from cussing

    Great gift for the fisherman! - 2/17/2014
    By: from White River Junction

    I bought this gift for my husband for Valentine's day. He had never seen it before being so new, but has tried it out already (in the house) and is super excited about it. He said it is going to be even more helpful with cold/wet fingers in the river trying to re-tie his flies.

    Threading Race Winner - 1/27/2014
    By: from Missoula, Montana

    Received the tool as a gift and have practiced a few times before the fishing season starts out west. My eyesight is poor, but my finger dexterity is about the same. The magnetic pull to hold the small flies in place is amazing. The tool firmly holds the flies which I often have trouble handling due to the small sizes that often stick to my fingers when I am fumbling to thread. Tool is everything advertised and the threading of size #22 flies is simple once again! Look forward to this upcoming fishing season.

    Not sure how this would help - 1/25/2014

    The slots to put the eye in are pretty small, so I am not totally sure how this would make it easier to thread the eye. It is a good quality product, but as far as being a visual aid to help folks thread flys, I don't think this is any good.

    An ingenious gadget - 8/17/2013
    By: from Norway, Europe

    As age increases ( I am not 50 yet) my vision is not like it was just 5 years ago, and this gadget really makes it easy to thread even small flies without using glasses. It is also a nice aid at low light conditions. If you are over 40 years, get one. If you are under 40, get one too!

    Easy to use, takes up zero space, perfect for those size 20 and smaller! The cost and value make this a no-brainer.
