I use a smaller O ring instead of a rubber skirt collar, and I reuse after I get the skirt on the jig/spinnerbait and wired in place.

I use the same tool as you Mark. It is the best tool in my opinion. I also use the O-rings and you can buy them from fishing supply sources for around $5 for 50 or you can just get a 500pc bag here for $3.62 the part # is 006 N70. You can even get a 2000pc bag for $14.49. Get all of your O-rings from here because they are so cheap.

An easton 2215 arrow shaft with a target point.Plenty of broken arrows free at the archery shop. Lube it. load it with collars Mix your colors and push them in with a brush handle. Push the flat section where the fibers are joined. Just cut the shaft with a pipe cutter to 1/2 the length of the skirt. Readjust the fibers once on the jig.
El Cheapo strikes again.

The o-ring alternative to collars looks like a good one, especially since I have seen a number of normal collars disintegrate on older baits. The 006 N70 o-ring has a 1/8" id. Is that small enough to hold 2 skirt pads securely?
