If the frayed ends bother you or you use a lot of Flair, this is a tool you might want to invest in. I bought mine from Needlepoint Tool Time when it was on sale. Tisha warned me if I wanted to ever replace my tip, to make sure I bought Thread Zap 2 tips as the original tool tips won't fit on the new, improved version.
This thing gets plenty hot, so be careful with it. I store mine with the battery out and am careful to put the dogs in the kitchen before I plan to use it. I've noticed my tip falls out if I don't hold it upright as well, but that might just be my particular Thread Zap. It's not something to be careless with, but it works beautifully on Water N Ice.
Thanks for the reminder, Ann!
