    Thanks, but it ain't about tippet spools.

    Ordered up some of the Grey's thingies off ebay. I'm happy.

    Allan, to expand on your mistake, those elastic bands with the rivet part of a pop rivet removed from the stem and poked through the band are great for tippet spools. You thread your line through the rivet and it unrolls only as much as you need, at least most of the time.
