Default Marc Petitjean products

Anyone use the whip finisher or the bobbin?

I've used the bobbin holder but really didn't like it and eventually sold it

Nice products but too expensive
mcnerney, Kerry Pitt and mridenour like this.

I have the MP bobbin. Thought about a couple of his other tools. Have zero interest in his whip finisher.

I attended the arts of the angler show in Danbury, DR a couple of years ago and watched a famous tyre set up his petitjean vise and it took him over 20 minutes of tweaking to get it just right. To me that was a poor advertisement for the vise.

A regal, renzetti or just about any other vise is practically up and running right out of the box.
