My Dad loves this! He is getting up there in his age and has to use his reading glasses a lot to tie his lines but this tool really helped him out. A great gift for any dad who fishs!
Yes, that's the only reason I bought this tool for was the nail knot jig. It makes excellent qualitys knots. I've yet to find a knot that holds better when splicing braid & flouro/mono together that the nail knot splice. It's been used for hundreds of years and for good reason. I use a nail knot in one form another 99 percent of the time. I've pulled 80+ pound cats from the bottom and never had one pull out once it's PROPERLY seated...
This is my third one of these because I keep dropping them in the water lol. These make tying knots a breeze especially when you're using tiny hooks for trout. You simply hold the hook and twist a bunch of times and make a clinch knot. It cuts up to 10 lb line with ease after that it's better to use this just for tying knots and some bigger pliers for bigger line. I have not used it yet for fly fishing but I will later on. Feels well made too which is of course one of the most important aspects.
Compared to the other high end tool. This knot tying tool does the job at half of the price. Material since to be very resistant well out together. Will recommend 100%
