    Excellent for the dollar!! - 6/6/2014

    Nice bobbin when you tweak the spool holder to the right place. It just takes a little to get it there. I also have the Orivs Adjustable Tension Bobbin, and the tension one is for sure a 5-Star because of it's easy adjustment. I think you need both,(this Wasatch and the Orvis Adjustable) as who doesn't always tie something in black or even olive? So, it's good to have a spool, or even two, set up with this Wasatch Woodtrimmed Bobbin in a few of your basic colors.

    Just starting to fly tie and this extra bobbin makes tying faster and easier so I don't have to change spools of thread as often and the price was right for the good quality

    Fits well in hand and as far as bobbins go it's attractive with the wood handle. I've had to stretch the arms on some spools but otherwise this a real good item. I'd buy another.

    Great Looking Bobbin - 4/26/2013
    By: from Richmond, VA

    This is a great bobbin. It looks awesome and is great at doing its job. The only complaint is that it often is too small to handle certain larger thread spools. But this is usually not a large problem as it is easy to bend the arms to agree with the large thread spools. Thanks Orvis!

    I like the look as well as the comfort of the wood grip. So far seems very smooth.

    Had trouble threading bobbin - 2/24/2012
    By: from Northwest US

    I purchased this product as I was impressed with the reviews of Wasatch products as well as their styling. I encountered difficulty threading the bobbin as the bobbin threader would hang up just before it would exit the bobbin. I have exchanged it for the same model and hope that it was just that piece that was defective.
