Dr. Slick Ceramic Bobbin Reviews
Ceramic all the way Review by David
You can't beat ceramic for a bobbin. The other bobbins become burred and snap your thread off which is probably the most annoying thing in fly tying. This won't happen with this bobbin. However, it is a little fragile. I accidentally knocked it off the table and the ceramic piece broke inside the bobbin and I was unable to tie flies because the broken ceramic would always cut the line. Don't drop or you'll be out 13 dollars.
a pleasure to use for many years of tying Review by Phil
Catching fish on a fly you have tied yourself is about as much fun as most of us can hope for. I have tied flies for longer than I'd care to admit, and I have come to the decision that tools that function well and which after I am gone are likely to serve my grandchildren well are a really good investment. The few extra bucks that a good ceramic bobbin costs (and this is one), buys you out of breaking off thread due to a bobbin that has become burred. I want my flies to be chewed beyond recognition by fish, not unravel while I am tying them.
