The Story

The only ultra-functional, micro-adjustable-tension fly tying bobbin on the market today boasts maximum thread control thanks to a unique brass tension wheel and top-quality components. Made in Nye, Montana, the Rite Bobbin comes in three versions to suit any tying application. Standard and Shorty both feature a unique brass tension adjuster for more control as you tie, a durable ceramic thread tube, a solid brass arm, a small-diameter barrel, a removable vinyl grip, 1.9-oz. of thread tension, and click-drag adjustment. The Ceramic Standard is our most popular version, with an ultra-versatile ceramic tube insert. From small midges to larger saltwater flies, the Standard is durable and long-lasting. For smaller flies requiring finesse, the Shorty features a smaller barrel, perfect for BWOs, midges, and small parachutes where a full-size bobbin just takes up too much space. Ideal for smaller hands, the Shorty features all the great features you've come to love in the Standard. Large flies, especially those with longer shanks such as streamers or saltwater flies, require their own version of finesse. The Ceramic Magnum offers additional length with the same durability as its smaller cousins. Ideal for cranking out large numbers of hefty flies, the zirconia ceramic insert ensures tough, stiff materials won't be damaged by the bobbin. 4½" reach with surgical-quality stainless steel components. Heavy-duty thread tension (2 to 16-oz. and very high-pressure click drag system. Excellent for spinning deer hair.

Made in USA.

In short, standard, magnum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe the difference! I have always used a traditional bobbin and it was "ok". The Rite bobbin (standard size) is so much better. Thread control is smooth and adjustable, It's shorter than traditional and gives me more control, and more comfortable to hold. A little longer to change out thread but not the end of the world. Still, thinking about buying a second one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bobbin I was looking for a bobbin that would give me more control of the thread tension. This bobbin does exactly that. Very satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bobbin I liked my first one so much I bought another one. The only drawback to these is that you can’t change thread quickly. Having more than one makes it easier. I think that I will have to buy a couple more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Thread Control, Tedious Thread Change The thread control is fantastic. Depending on the thickness of the thread, I am able to change how much tension required to get more thread while winding. The only downside is changing the thread. It takes longer than changing on other bobbins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bobbin! I love this bobbin because of how many different variable tensions you can use, and how easy it is to adjust the tension. The fact that it is open on one side makes it very easy to navigate while tying in materials as well!
