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.
I use these scissors for everything, very sharp and very effective
These scissors are the best ones I’ve ever had. Very durable, very sharp and very comfortable in the hand!
Picked up these scissors and now have a complete set of LOON scissors.
Good first impression here - tolerences are tight and they cut hair and other materials quite well. Please with this purchase.
These are the new go to! I do a lot of deer hair flies and a sharp pair of scissors that are sharp and "grip" the hair while cutting is a must. These are perfect for this application and are my new dedicated hair scissors. I only wish I had purchased them sooner.
Great Scissors for general tying. I use these for all materials accept wire. they really keep a edge
These scissors cut through tough materials and keeps sharp saving your other scissors sharp as well
Great head cement, dries quickly and hard. Awesome for building bodies. Meets and exceeds expecation.
Bought this in clear and several other colors. Luv the stuff! The clear dries fast and CLEAR! The colors are great for hot spots on ordinary beads or fish skulls! I think I am going to buy more colors!
So far have used the Hard Head cement for several months now, and have had no issues with it other than the fact that it needs to be marked a little better that it is water based, not lacquer based.
This stuff sucks I was hoping for bright orange dot but I got wet tacky dubbing instead
