It is debated among fly tyers if the tool or the hand are better. The hand whip finish is an important skill for a fly tyer to learn but the tool provides a level of control and speed in situations where freeing up a hand is highly valued or an awkward angle.
The extended reach tool allows for a whip finish to be applied further into the fly than just the head. This is often valued when tying streamers, saltwater and bass flies.
