The Boat Loop
Improper use of the Boat Loop can cause injury. DO NOT place the loop over head or around the neck. Do not use as a permanent mooring line. DO NOT EXCEED 200 lbs. pulling or 150 lbs. pushing weight on pole as damage or injury may result (average adult strength is 50-250 lbs.) USE CAUTION when pole is fully extended. Fiberglass poles are lightweight, but susceptible to buckling when great force is applied to longer extensions. Over time, this can weaken or crack the fiberglass. The Boat Loop will float only when extended 8" or more.

I initially purchased my Boat Loop MT3-6 because I was tired of wasting time attempting to lasso the cleats at the dock. The loop makes it so easy now I'm not sure how I functioned without previously.
Since my purchase, I have found numerous other uses for the device. The rubber plug at the front is great for pushing off when you get too close to the dock and the dual hooks really help out at the cove when we're rafting the boats together. I just hook the line in the loop, extend the pole, and hand it to the other boat. It's Brilliant!
One side note there is a quick lock function that allows you to extend and lock the pole in place in seconds. I was under the assumption that you had to unscrew the nut, extend it, then lock the nut in place. You can still do it this way, but its much faster to just twist the lock into place!
I loved the device so much I purchased another (the Long MT4-8) for my boat and one for my dad for this upcoming fathers day...
My first thought when I bought this was it was over priced and I was hoping I wasn't making a mistake. Shortly after having it on the boat a couple days I thought I was going to cut the loop off so it wouldn't look so ridiculous. However, I got side tracked and ended up not cutting the loop as I originally thought. I went the whole season fishing on the Missouri River and found I used this many times in a single day and yes I even used the silly loop to catch logs and such.
So in reflection now that the season is all but over I found this an indispensable tool. It is everything I hoped it to be I wanted a quality fiberglass pole compared to the cheap aluminum rods this is far superior. It still looks a little silly in my rod holder but I love this thing I used it to push debris away from my boat and saving a run in the current not having to come around again since I have a loop to catch my spot. "Well, done Boat Loop People" my many thanks.
A definite must for anyone who often takes their boat out solo, or takes out friends/family members who are relatively useless when it comes to helping out when docking. Sometimes it's easier just to tell everyone to sit down and stay out of the way while you take care of it yourself. While I've gotten good enough this year at docking that I don't use it as much, it's always nice to have on windy days when docking can get squirrelly. A bit pricey but the build quality reflects that price. I think the medium size with the standard loop will fulfill 95% of boaters needs. I don't see the need for the larger loop unless you have some really big pilings you need to grab.
