    A few months ago I saw the magic tool but thought it was a complete rip off cause I could just buy some clips from CNA much cheaper and do the same thing, needless to say I was very wrong. So this week i went and bought myself a magic tool and now I think it is worth every cent, but I was wondering, I suppose the guys that have had the magic tool for awhile could tell me, does the novelty wear off or has the magic tool become one of your tying tools that you just couldn't go without?

    Personally I use the clips, sometimes 2 at a time for my CDC Bugger and I also use one spring when doing that. (can't exactly insert the goods from two clips at one time without kokking it up) Never used the tables as stacking the feathers and then using the two clips to grab feathers from either side of the stem worked much better *for me* vs trying to stack the whole lot on a table which sometimes did not do a proper job anyways (the spring mechanism irritates me) so it's up to you what you like and prefer. Never used the wooden thingies either. The novelty has worn off.
