Secondary Crafting/Gathering Tools and statsFollow

Question regarding secondary crafting/gathering tools (off-hand) -

Are the stats on your secondary crafting tool always in effect as long as it is equipped are they only in effect when you are actually using your secondary tool to craft/gather?

I made an Iron Needle for myself when I had Blacksmith high enough just so I can level weaver a bit as I picked up moko grass and cotton bolls while fighting/gathering/etc and repair my Tarred Walking Hat with straw I pick up. I haven't picked up a secondary weaving tool yet partly due to inventory space always being tight. So I am wondering if having a secondary tool equipped helps at all if you're doing primary tool crafting/gathering.

Thanks.

Tool stats appear to only affect using the tool when synthing. I leveled one BSM to 20 with a secondary tool equipped and another without a secondary tool equipped and noticed no difference in success rates at all.

Edit: Also, if you equip both you will see that your stats don't budge when you equip the secondary tool.

you didnt notice because you already had the required gear to craft succesfuly
the stat that is based on increased succes isnt really "increased success" but it decreases the chance of the item "sparking" which is an effect that causes decreased success.

that being said, i havent noticed much of a difference with or without the 2ndary tool, but then again my gear itself is good so its not like i need much more then just the primary to keep myself out of the red on synthing anything

They are only in effect when you actually use it. They do not show up in stat windows when you equip them. R22 Leatherworker mainhand tool is atm broken and most Tanners use r27 Offhand tool from r20-30 because it's way better than that piece of crap r12 mainhand.
