Definitely a no go right now! -

I purchased the curved Super-Smooth Bobbin as an additional and improved bobbin. The idea was to put on my two most common colors and not have to continually switch between the two. I had a terrible time trying to get the line to thread through the funnel. I eventually broke my bobbin threader trying to push it through the hole. I tried to put a copper wire through the hole as well, but met some resistance. When I finally did get the thread through, it was quickly broken as I tried to tie a fly. When I received it, i tried to put on a spool of thread, but the spool holders were not aligned properly. I had to realign them myself just to attempt to use it. I have not sent it back yet, but I plan on at least trying to get a replacement. If that one is better, then I will provide an additional review.

Purchased the curved model and was very impressed. I didn't think it could matter at all for a bobbin, but after holding a bobbin for an hour or more, it really does make a difference. I highly recommend this to anyone sitting at a vice.
Smooth but different -
I got the curved bobbin and everything is smooth operating. I have to hold the bobbin a little different on this one to keep the thread (from the cradle to the tube) from hitting my hand.
Difficult to thread -

Found it difficult to thread but having said that it's comfortable in the hand and controls the thread well
Fewer thread breaks -

The smooth operation is a big help and stops my thread breaks. I am a little heavy handed and this bobbin has really helped.
Super-Smooth is right! -

The bobbins are a true reflection to their name- super-smooth! They never chafe the thread and allows quick, neat, and good looking wrapping! Very light and are truly a must have for all fly-tiers

Smooth bobbin but too loose for my liking. I Can't bend it enough to tighten it up.
