The Story

There's nothing worse than a bobbin that frays and cuts your thread during tying. Our bobbin has a smooth ceramic insert that prevents fraying and breakage.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ceramic Bobbin How wrong can you go when you go to the premier fly tying shop to buy needed items, especially when you are a newbie? This bobbin, to me, is well made and seems that I will be able to pass this on to my kids when I go to the Great Stream In the Sky. Sturdy, ergonomic and built to last. This will be one of many purchases I make at Orvis.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality I purchased 4 of these bobbins. 1 works ok, but the other 3 cut thread instantly as you try to tie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Ordered three bobbins as I thought this model to be a good value for a ceramic bobbin. I spooled each bobbin with different thread: 8/0 Uni thread, 6/0 Orvis, 100 denier Veevus gel spun. Within a few turns around a hook, each bobbin cut the thread with which it was spooled. The Uni and Orvis threads were cut clean through in only a few wraps, and the individual filaments of the Veevus frayed until finally splitting entirely. While I cannot be sure, I think the threads were cut because while the inside of the ceramic insert is rounded, the outer edge is not.
