These things are freaking amazing. They
retail for 8.99, and I can tell you that getting 2 of them is WELL
worth the $18.00. Out of deference to any of the folks who moderate this
board I will not post a link to the only place I have found that sells
Basically they are metal rings with a wide groove cut out
in to them. This groove is coated in rubber, which grips the line very
well, especially after 3 or so wraps. I use them to cinch down my knots
for all of my fishing applications. They are especially helpful with
braid to leader connection knots, and the double Uni knot *as named by
Stephen Pineau*. I have scars up and down my index fingers from line
slicing in to them. These will eliminate that problem. No more superglue
to seal cuts, or funny residue from several wraps of electrical tape.
Just slide them on, tie the knots, and slide them back off. Oh, I should
mention that my Albright knots are nice and tight now, they easily fly
through my micro guides on my rods.
Again, WELL worth the $18 I paid for them, and I know a few fisherman who may be getting these for Christmas.
