Very cool little line holder. I like to carry as little gear as possible. With the Keeper you can carry enough flies and line for a full day of fishing.
This is a great addition when I only have a pocket for gear backpacking or biking. Tippet on one side and line on the other or two lengths of line and another tippet. I can typically cary enough flies in the Keeper for for a session unless it's super windy or snaggy.
Two small problems with your line and fly keeper; the indents for spooling and unspooling need to be larger and the fly compartment is too small.
I love the new design and the ability to store multiple lines all in one keep. The fly storage is also a neat addition. Quality build with durable materials.
I love the Keeper, we have several. Had to repurchase since we lost one to the river recently. I don't keep too many flies in it because I've had the fly compartment pop open a few times and I've lost flies, hence the 4 stars not 5.
My only complaint is that the shipping was so expensive. I didn't expect to pay $12 to ship a $12 item in a small padded envelope. I understand having to pay the shipping cost for such a small purchase but doubling the price seemed like a lot.
