I really like the tension adjustment feature and the ease at which a dubbing loop can be formed. If I had one question it would be; Does the opening at the end of the bobbin tube snag or catch the thread like a burr during fast wrapping? If this is not an issue it looks like a handy bobbin that might be worth investing in.

Wyotyer – that’s a really good point. I did ask a few folks I know that have one of the bobbins and they said it is an issue at first but they were able to adjust and now it’s not a problem. It would be nice to try it out first before making the investment.

Wyotyer says

I would also like to try it before plunking down that kind of money. I would really like to know about lifespan with heavy volumes of tying. Who would have thought 15 or 20 years ago we might even consider a $60 bobbin?

It does seem like a lot of money for a bobbin. I have 3 boys that are just getting into fly tying so I might pass some of my bobbins on to them and get one for myself!
