We love it when coming into a new marina... It's a bit clumsy to get started because we don't use it very often, but once i have the loop just right, it's awesome. We store it in the nav station... We don't recommend just leaving it on the boat hook as the the wrap does degrade with sun and salt air (what doesn't?). I usually lasso lines around a piling, but that takes a longer line. With this, you can just put a loop in the line with bowlin or a splice, and then hold it wide and place over the piling. Sweet. I was even able to double a line using it, wrapping it around the piling and back to boat to make easier leaving the next day. One size larger for heavier lines would be great, but this is perfect size for almost every line at use.
