Long ago I learned how to tie the whip finish by hand because all the experts said that's the way they did it. Either that or they finished with a double half-hitch. On larger flies I never had a problem executing the whip finish by hand, but on smaller hooks, especially dry flies, I struggled sometimes. This tool makes it effortless. Wish I'd ordered one years ago.
I have always "finished" my flies with a "Thompson" style whip finisher. It worked well, but the "Matarelli" style whip finisher is soooo much easier to learn and use. I got the bamboo handled one and it is nice to hold and the rotating arm makes whip finishing fast and slick! The built in half-hitch tool on the bottom end of the handle is nice too! (One less tool on the bench.)Get one, you won't regret it.
