This product worked as it should. But I honestly didnt find it much different from the bobbers I have used in the past. I believe it would however be somewhat easier for younger or inexperienced anglers.

Over all this product does work as it's design was intended. Easily being put on and taken off fishing line without having to thread it. The one big downfall for me is that the product did not come along with a set of bobber stoppers.

The locking system can break easily and it's a good product but just feels cheap but it's not a bad product. I would suggest a stronger plastic and maybe a light metal lock system

The best feature of the item is the ability to quickly and easily change the size. The various sizes are nice for different applications.

Overall this bobber gets the job done.It came handy when bluegill fishing different depths to switch out without have to retie.other than the ease of switching bobber it is just another bobber

– "Clip On Bobbers Just OK"
No real advantage to any other slip bobber except when changing sizes of bobbers.You still have to set up the rig and clip these bobbers on.If you lose the rig you still have to start over.

the ease in putting them on and off is easy .usually I have poles that are just dedicated for slip bobber fishing so this product is some what just a convenience .they seem a little light they may want to some how make them like a weighted bobber I was unable to try the real small ones since I believe they woud be superb for ice fishing in enclosed shelter. since there is no ice can not give it a try. since it is fall I am concentrating more on bow hunting than fishing so I am not getting out as much as I would in spring to give the bobbers a better test . last couple times out on boat has been windy and bobbers were not impressive except ease of putting them on

The bobbers were easily visible in the water and a nice design. They also are easier to use in my opinion than conventional bobbers. But They seemed like they needed to be a little more sturdy and when on the line they did take up and make part of the line stiff

– "The Slip Lock Bobber Review"
The bobbers worked as well as any other slip bobber under a variety of conditions. The greatest thing about them is they let you remove or change the bobber without removing all your terminal tackle which saves time, retying andfrustration. The only complaint is that the tube could be a little smaller so the bobber stop can't get through but that depends on which stops you're using.

I found them just to be OK. I use mainly braided super lines and Fireline. The design would not allow my line to slide through the keepers as easily then if I was using a slip bobber with the brass grommet on them. I would have to add more weight then I liked to get my line to slide through. Also, of course you still need to add a stop to your line to set your depth so it's not that much more trouble to thread a slip bobber on. The only advantage I could see would be to change bobber sizes accordingly to the conditions.

I was excited to use these bobbers when they arrived.They were simple to put on, a little extra attention is needed to make sure they completely click shut.The part that was frustrating for me was it slides all over the place.I had to "jerry-rig" my line to get it to stay in place.I rated this product a 3 because of this reason.It was a big draw back and needs something to hold it in place when snapped into place on the line.I am a little concerned about how long the clips will last that hold the bobber on the line, but it performed just fine while I was using it this morning on the ponds and on the river.

Not a bad product I would not recommend for center pin fishing but would be great for ice fishing or lake fishing very easy to use
