Just my personal opinion,but I have tried two different kinds and didn't like them.One was the Berkly line stripper and hook sharpener and I can't remember who made the other.They did sharpen a hook but not a small one or as sharp as you can do it with just a fine stone or diamond file.

I'm in the same boat as fishhead. The Berkely line stripper is nice for big hooks during the open water season and it is nice for stripping line. But I prefer a file for ice fishing when dealing with smaller hooks.
Good Fishing, Matt.

I have one called Hook Hon-R, which is ideal for Lake Michigan use. I keep it handy so that the multiple lures used (3 per angler in Wis waters) can be kept sharp. We use a ton of spoons, and the Hon-R is a great way to assure the hook is always sharp. It will sharpen a hook so it passes the thumbnail test. And, yes, these are larger hooks.

For sharpening on inland lakes where fewer lures are in use, nothing beats a good file. Especially for muskie fishing, when a triangular point is best on a hook, a hand file will sharpen and shape the hook much better than any rotating mechanical device could ever do. Keep 'em sharp.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
