How easy is the FinMan to install and can it be taken off and swapped onto other setups?
FinMan is easy to install thanks to its double O-ring attachment, as shown in the video and described in the Use Guide. Once you secure one O-ring, the second is simple. Additionally, your FinMan can be removed easily by using the hook on your lure as a crochet hook, easily sliding it under the O-rings and pulling upward, which will allow you to switch the device between multiple setups and pieces of gear.
What size rods is the FinMan designed to fit?
Thanks to innovative engineering, FinMan will fit rods with diameters from ¼ inch (such as a panfish rod) up to ¾ inch (such as bass or heavy trolling rods). Each FinMan comes with three sets of O-rings (small, medium and large) to give the user flexibility to attach FinMan to different size rods. FinMan can be transferred between different rods by removing the O-rings and reattaching them.
How long will the O-rings last?
Due to the importance of FinMan’s attachment to your rod, be assured that we have sourced high quality O-rings that are specially formulated to withstand continuous outdoor exposure. You can expect years of use without seeing O-ring degradation.
Can I purchase additional O-Rings if I lose mine?
Yes, we sell a pack of three sets of O-Rings (one set each of small, medium and large). See Replacement O-rings to place an order.
Are the blades replaceable?
No, the FinMan blades are not replaceable. However, all of our blades are hardened and tempered to ensure that the user will be able to cut their line many times without noticed dulling.
Can FinMan be used on fly rods?
FinMan is not recommended to be used on a fly fishing setup due to the nature of the fly line and casting technique. Fly line occasionally gets hung up on the reel, and placing a FinMan on a fly fishing rod blank could give the line another place to snag. However, FinMan could be used as a stand-alone nipper while fly fishing by attaching it to a vest or other article of clothing. If desired, it could be attached with an included O-ring.
I would like to purchase FinMan for a friend. Is FinMan only for experienced anglers?
One of the many advantages of FinMan is that despite the rigorous engineering that went into the design, it is just as useful and easy to use for brand new anglers as it is for experienced ones. It is simple to install and use, and having a FinMan on a rod eliminates many of the time-consuming and frustrating elements of fishing that so many anglers experience.
