Other Manufacturers Point

The image to the left shows ToroTamer’s improved needle point. the two images right are of another manufacturer’s needle points. ToroTamer needles have a bit more pronounced point which makes it easier to begin insertion into hollow braid and the point is more highly polished so it slips through the line more easily. The only drawback to this is that with some harder to work with lines such as a 12 strand there can be a modest increase in the needle slipping through the strands. This is a minimal risk, and easy to correct if encountered. The benefit of our design far outweighs any potential negative in our estimation.
