Yes the one thing to watch would be the sharp edge at the end of the guard from trimming to length other than that I like these things so far. I used 210 denier for strength but I am sure 140 would work well too. I also epoxied the head for added strength and durability. I have not tried a clouser yet but would think a heavier set of eyes would be needed to compensate for the weight of the guard.
