Dr. Slick Glass Bobbin
A smooth bobbin is critical to your fly tying endeavors, and true to its name, the Dr. Slick Glass Bobbin is one incredibly smooth performer. Its Delrin feet grip both ends of your thread spool securely, yet allow perfectly tensioned rotation on demand; meanwhile, the dual glass inserts provide precise, super-smooth thread application to the most delicate patterns, regardless of the angle required. The rounded glass edges are far less likely to contribute to mid-operation line breakage than the sharper angles common to traditional bobbin inserts. Until you actually tie a few flies with the Dr. Slick Glass Bobbin, you may find it hard to believe that it can make that big a difference in your craft – but it absolutely will.

impossible to threadI could not get a threader through the tube at all. Tried both a wire type and an even thinner homemade fish line type. Both of these threaders work smoothly on my brass bobbins, but would not go through this glass tube at all. This bobbin is unusable.

Great once you get the thread started.HINT: twisting the bobbin threader as you insert it makes it easier to get through the bottom insert. If it wasn't hard to load, I'd give this five stars.

Awesome bobbin for the money.I have tied about 120 to 150 flies with it and I don't have one complaint.
