Feels great in the palm. Could use a little tighter fit for smaller spools of thread especially when pulling on heavier stuff for predator flies, but will definitely add a couple more to the lineup.
At first it felt big and cumbersome in my hand and I have large hands. Then after tying about 2 dozen flies it started to feel more natural. I was using a collection of different bobbins before and wanted to make the few I had all the same so I am giving these a try. Currently I like the feel and thread control that the bobbins offer. I would buy another for sure.
I love how it feels in hand, nicest one o have owned but the thread fall out often. Maybe make the bobs that hold thread a little smaller?
Works great has a large handle that is comfortable to use.
1. Solid design.
2. Ergonomically optimized.
3. Recommended for delicate and heavy work.
1. Very often spools slides of the holder (need to upgrade/modify shape of bearings – extremely critical issue).
2. A lot of sharp edges on a steel frame (cuts a thread).
3. Squeaky hubs with some bobbins.
