Eh, not a terrible product but, I will likely go with another brand
Reviewer: A viewer from Fort Worth TX
I can't prove that this tippet isn't as strong as others I have used but, it just seem to be breaking off a tad more. Also the little cutter is a SUPER cool idea that doesn't work all that great. When the spools are clicked in together the sides of the spools are so close together that it is hard to slip the line in and cut it. I find I just end up using my nippers, to the point I forgot these spools even had a cutter. Another issue I have is with the provided rubber bands that hold the tippet down and dispense it. One spool I received the band was so loose it was virtually useless and another stretched out over time to cause it to slip quite a bit. The spools come with a insert where the spools connect to each other, this allows them to spin a bit more freely and in that they do succeed. It is just the right amount of give, less hang ups when pulling off tippet but, not so much that it spools off. Your really are paying for some thoughtfulness in the spool design here and where I am likely to keep using this is with my Tenkara setup. I mainly use a lanyard and only have 4x and 5x tippet with me. The cutter issue wont matter with only 1 or 2 spools.
