Great Bobbin -
By: Chino4545 from Fayetteville, AR
This bobbin is great. I don't break my thread nearly as often. There are numbers on the disc drag to help you dial in the tension when you put on a new spool. Feels great in your hand. Very smooth operation compared to the two pronged bobbins.

I love the way I can control the thread with these. Don't know how I got by with out them before. I have my most used thread on them. I bought 2 and just ordered 2 more. Great product.
Best Buy for Fly Tying -

I have been looking at these for a while. I finally broke down and bought two and now wonder why I didn't do it sooner. These are easy to handle, fit well in my hands and make tying smoother because you can adjust the tension of the bobbin. Now I never have to pull hard to get thread and accidentally pull the hook in my vise. I bought two, I will probably get two more so I have 4 colors ready to go at anytime.
Bobbin Along -

I have just started to tie again after many years. Got my first tying materials with the standard bobbin but found I couldn't control it very well. Got The adjustable tension bobbin and love it. Glad I got two!
Excellent for fine threads -

I use this with spider web for tying off the hackles on parachute flies (paraduns, klinkhammers, etc.....). I can set the tension just right so as not to snap the thread. It is a nice size and weight and makes tying parachute hackles simple.

great bobbin,Italian design and German engineering !!!! so easy to work for the following reasons-solid and balanced construction!!! the best part the drag system.
I like it -
I am a new fly tyer so take this with a grain of salt. I gave this product four stars simply because I have not used too many different spools so I dont have much to compare to. I think this spool is very comfortable in the hand and the build quality seems very high. I bought it for the adjustable tension and it works quite well. It is great to be able to set the tension lower for lighter thread as I tie smaller flys. I would recommend this product.
