Used to have a index finger worked over by that hooky thingy, six years of rebar work. Used to be called “Rod Buster”, and even ran “steel” crews. Mine had a little bit more of a hook to it, helps with the speed. Them straight ones, the loops would sometimes just slide back off. Used to be, I could out tie a guy who used the pliers& and wire reel. Kind of ticked him off, too.

The ties are known as “Bag Ties”. And that is known as a spinner. You’d be surprised at how many I’d wear out in a year….
