Mickey Anderson helped us design all our fly tying tools. This one was his favorite, so we named it after him. The Dub Loopa compliments the stubby shepard – they are both dubbing twisters, shepard does open loop and the Dub Loopa does closed loop.
The handle is shaped so that it feels great in your hand and is easy to spin. Various prototypes confirmed that knurled material on the top and smooth at the bottom is the most comfortable and user friendly handle design. Further testing confirmed the offset for the center dip of the wire was crucial for thread tension – as was the length of the wire form from the handle. Mr Anderson helped us perfect all these facets, and so gets his name on this beauty.
