i personally never try to loose snags by hand, i only ever use boat cleats. Couple loops around and there ya go much safer. i wasnt saying its was a bad deal at all... i like the idea, i was just saying that i personally havent needed one for getting an fg that tight.
i know mike personally, fished on my boat many times. i think he made a cool widget.
