Super-Smooth Bobbins

Tie big flies with confidence and ease using this fly tying bobbin.

Details

The feet that hold the thread spool are made with Delrin®, so the spool rotates more smoothly than any bobbin you've ever used. These bobbins give you smooth, consistent tension. The tube is flared at both ends, and lined with ultrahard black ceramic to minimize wax buildup and thread wear. Supreme bobbin has straight tube for standard work. Curved bobbin has slightly curved shape that is comfortable in the hand. Magnum bobbin will handle strong threads and large flies with ease—excellent for spinning deer hair or tying large steelhead, salmon, or saltwater flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The end to snagging thread Was having issues with thread spooling out at an even pace and getting snagged up on other bobbins. This really is one of the better options available. Going to get a lot of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Curved bobbin Waste of time. Out of frustration I spent way too much time trying to thread thru the ceramic insert. Feels like a lip at the ends prevents easy passage. Can not even push wire thru easily. The alignment is poor and had to manually bend to accommodate a spool and it still isnt perfect. Only bad experience Ive had with an Orvis product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Bobbins I have purchases many products from Orvis over the years, however, have recently noticed that the quality of some of their fly fishing products has declined recently. This bobbin, one of many others I own, was defective and did not properly align with or smoothly retain the thread. I also purchased some olive thread that was bright green rather than olive. Seem to lack attention to details. I returned both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Smooth Bobbin Bought the curved version recently. Fits well in the hand, holds the thread reel well and is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more broken thread By far the best bobbin I have ever used. The ceramic insert has virtual eliminated broken thread for me, making my time at the vise much more productive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from pretty disappointed I ordered the magnum bobbin...too large for standard spools...then ordered the master super smooth bobbin...it was plugged up and would not take thread...pushed a needle thru and found a sealed up ceramic or plastic liner that was junk...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bobbin This is my first ceramic bobbin purchased. After my thread continued to break, I decided it was time to upgrade, I'm glad I did.
