    Maybe this will be of some help?

      I fish the NZ quite a bit, and for spooky fish it's the best. The trick it using enough wool, thickness wise, but trim to a reasonably small size and add gink(generously). I regularly fish tandem midge rigs with #4 or #6 shot and it always floats. The wool style indicator will detect more subtle takes than a bobber style indicator( i.e. winter month midge takes can be extremely light) Also doesn't kink your leader. Just my experience!

        Interesting topic here! As i'm fairly new to the addiction i've been trying all of them across the board, Thingamabobbers, NZ, and now these Loon Stealth indicators.

        The bobbers were a bit much for any longer casting (for me), NZ weren't floating well enough and I had to keep track of the little tool, but these i've found are working great for me. Orvis sells a multi pack of sizes and colors (neon or neutrals), great water resistance out of the box, but coat them up nicely and I haven't had any issue whatsoever, even in a full day of rain, just add some more floatant if/when needed.

        I've personally increased my hook-up rate tremendously, wether thats from changing to these or i'm finally showing progress in my skills... The sensitivity on these is awesome, I'm a fan.

          I like this one sorta..
          A little less than anatomically accurate, but easy enough and better than just yarn maybe.
