Default Re: Tiers: Whip Finish- Tool or Fingers?

I learned to whip finish with my fingers at age 16 when I couldn't afford a tool. I still don't own one so I can't say which is easier or better.
I tied flies for years without a bobbin. I clipped a clothes pin on the spool of thread. When I finally bought one, I realized how much easier tying was than I ever thought possible.
Tools can make a huge difference, I just never bothered with a whip finisher.
