This system was introduced to me last year & being a bobberhead, i was excited about it & have really enjoyed using it. Even with 7X, it won't kink the tippet when you move it.
They came out with a video, i've known the guy that helped develop this for years & have thanked him for the simplicity everytime i see him.
Here's a video of it in action.

I started using it last September. I bought it from the Fish Hawk in Atlanta. You can order it from them. I showed it to you and Flyman at the Pechman center, Ralph. The thing works! You can use just a little bit of wool for small stuff and bigger pieces of wool for the larger stuff. What I like about it is with a small piece of wool there is hardly any drag.

I hate to bust someones bubble, but I was doing that 10 years ago with surgical tubing.
Yes , it does make it easy to apply a yard indicator, but I quit using yard indicators a pretty good time ago

You aren't bursting anybody's bubble. This doesn't use yarn, it uses New Zealand wool with the oil still in it. It floats forever with very little drag. I wouldn't be caught dead with yarn. I was looking for something to use in flat water that wouldn't cause drag. I spent last summer testing every kind of indicator known to mankind. The Orvis paste indicators came in second.

TFF made a bulk purchase of these last fall. I've got one, but I haven't used it yet.

Thanks Grumpy...Just ordered mine. Looks a good system. I like the fact that it lands quietly, it should pick up nicely and they won't flip off.

Why the use of a tool. I can make by hand.
