This fly is traditional enough to satisfy the classic low-water swing fly crowd, but also adds in a little extra bugginess and flare.

I have tried a handful of bobbins and this one remains my favorite. It is simple and smooth. Totally recommend this to other tyers.
I got this bobbin a few weeks back. The thread control on this unit makes a big difference my the consistency of my tying. The ergo handle makes tightening down materials with full easier. I really like it on spinning deer hair or using buck tail. Another great designed product by loon. They just might make me a better fly tier yet.
Really like this bobbin. Its hard to say if this one is better than something else because I'm new to tying and this is the only one I have used. If something works great, why replace it. The quality and smoothness works for me.
My first impression of this bobbin was that it felt large and a bit awkward ind my hand. After tying my first dozen or so flys, it feels more natural in my hand. I like the bright Loon yellow color because it’s always easy to find. After having some other bobbins fall apart or chip, I appreciate the bomber construction.
Sounds like I've had the same experience as most others here. Definitely a comfortable bobbin and seems well built. Only real adjustment for me was adjusting to the default thread tension. A rubber band around the spool arms might be enough to increase tension without manually bending the metal arms however.
if you purchase these scissors you will be happy with your choice. sharp and adjustable tension!
The tips don't seem to cut great. I cant get this pair to trim ultra tight like my all purpose loons do. They do work fantastic at not "pushing" when cutting material. They hold and cut great. Just the tip needs some work.
So far they have worked well. I like that I can adjust the tension on the blades and they are very sharp. Only improvements that could be made include a longer blade length (just a personal preference based on the fingers I hold them in) and longer knuckle openings. Either way, I look forward to breaking them in and using them more in the future.
These things are sharp! Finer tips than other razor scissors I've used. These quickly because my go to all purpose scissors. If they wear out, I'll get a new pair immediately
As advertised! It's sharp. It great addition to my fly tying tools. It fits my figures perfectly. Must have tool.
I have noticed a big difference in the cure time with this light. It is worth investment if you plan on tying multiple flys quickly
I’ve been extremely impressed with how well and quickly the Infinity light cures UV resins. The light is incredibly powerful and the battery holds a charge for a long time. Love that it is chargeable, not worrying about replacing batteries was a big selling point. Great value, great addition to the tying arsenal.
Plenty of power to cure any good uv epoxy. Recharge is quick and the battery lasts a long time. Excellent warranty support from Loon.
The LOON UV INFINITI LIGHT is a great tool to have at your tying bench. Comfortable in your hand and gets the job done as expected. Great features are: 1) The ease of a smooth On-Off switch which illuminates when On so you don’t accidentally leave it On, and: 2) The ability to recharge the battery with the included USB cord. I keep the removable lanyard tucked away as it’s not needed while tying at my bench but is otherwise available if you might find it useful.
I love that this is rechargeable. It does what it is supposed to do and pretty quickly. No complaints here.
