very good indicator   (from prior model)
Pros: Trouble free--don't need floatant.
Cons: tapered peg loosens too easy
Best Uses: Any time you need extra weight
Comments: This is a trouble free indicator. Would like to see a marker of some sort at the top of the indicator that would help show the position of the fly. I once had a yarn indicator with a lightweight snap that would allow you to change to a different size indicator without cutting the line. This would also be a useful addition.

Thingamabobber = Awesome   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Handle, Strong, Good For Variety Of Fish
Best Uses: Fly fishing, Fresh Water
Comments: I am an avid fly fisher but have never understood how others can detect subtle strikes from trout without an indicator. However, the ones I have used in the past were difficult to use, generally either too big making it difficult to cast, or too small and not able to support minimal weight. The Thingamabobber is easy to roll cast, even in windy conditions, stays afloat, even in a real fast current and the result was the first time I used it, I caught a 12lb steelhead in fast moving water that I used to avoid. I've since caught 2 more Steelies and 4 large brown trout and I've only been using the Thingamabobber for a week. Awesome!

Reb
The best strike indicators   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Handle, Easy To Store, Tangle free
Best Uses: Fly fishing
Comments: Thingamabobers are simply the best strike indicators available. They go "on" and "off" the easiest. They don't get caught up in your fly line if you mess up your loop. They're virtually indistructible. And the white colored ones look just like a piece of foam floating on the water. They're great. I'm a pro not affiliated with this company and I HIGHLY recommend them.

Pros: Stays on the line, Easy To Store, Easy To Handle
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: I have lost many strike indicators that used the pegged system and get frustrated with time consuming indicators that you must put on put on prior to the fly and weights. The thingamobber may be put on at any time and easily adjusted to the water depth.

Thingamabobbers are most commonly used as a strike indicator for drift fishing on a fly or spinning rod. They are used by themselves on the line to detect strikes.
