$11 ?US, so $15CAD or so?   If it works well then it's most likely worth the $15.

If the eyes are getting bad and it helps (more so on a windy day) then why not try it?  I have seen a few like that as of late too.  My eye's are going and they must know it so I've considered it.

Warning - IF you do try ordering this watch your credit card billings online frequently - I tried with something similar and ended up having to get several fake charges reversed and my card reissued.  Not saying this isn't legit, but remember about things seeming too good to be true...

Once you get the 2 finger twirl down pat, this one has served me well for over 30 years tying up eye hooks for steelhead, strong and quick.  Like it says if you tie flies and do a whip finish without one of those safety pin type whip finisher tools the mechanics are the same.   http://www.steelheader.net/knots/whip_finish.htm

I can tie a knot for hooks, and uni to uni easy and probly blind folded, It,s that darn nail knot. I will give the pen thing a try. I have tried using a nail and a straight bobbin needle, but for the life of me,I can not get it right. I tried the shank snell knot and almost have it down, almost. I will see how it holds up in the morning . GOING FLY FISHING. :good:

for a nail knot , I use a section of empty ball pen ink tube instead of a nail and pass the leader back through the tube. 

edit This may help , to the backing I use an albright knotimage.png.0a0b1c7c71ade906a3d229481d92b3c6.png

I have a similar tool, and they work great once you get the hang of it. These days I just put a permanent Loop on the end of the fly line, and attach leaders using a Loop to Loop connection.

I ordered one last week too.  I tried to check the shipping that they gave me and it kept coming up that there was no data for that tracking number.  I sent the company an email and they got back to me right away and gave me another tracking number.  I checked into it and it was saying it was shipped.  It is coming from China, so it will take a few weeks to get to you.  I wish I would have known it came from there, I wouldn't have purchased it.  I am trying to keep my money in Canada at this time.

 

Chrispy!

I was using the loop to loop, found to much drag. Ya I am a pro am guy.LOL

I finally got my order through to Cabelas for fly supplies. I added one of those knot things to it. Atleast I know what I am paying for .:canadian:

I bought one of these awhile ago (elsewhere for ~2 all in), same thing. It's easier to just use your fingers then this tool.

I bought one couple of years. Hard time using it with light line. Great for heavier line. Maybe its just my eyes. Probably need more practice

Not using it.
