Default Re: A good whip finish tool

I struggled with this when I first started tying and went mostly with half hitch. Basically this was because when I started out, I was looking at books and didn't have the internet resources available today. I used that for years, but ditched the Thomson style and went to Matarelli. I found them much easier to use. To practice, I got a long streamer hook and just did whip finish after whip finish. Like everything else in tying, preferences will vary.
