I exclusively use the nor-vise automatic bobbin with the exception of spools of wire, in which I have a couple of rite-bobbins that I love dearly and need the ceramic tube due to the wire's ability to chew through metal tubes.

I use ceramic for thread, metal for all others, can't beat ceramic, never cuts or frays the thread, no matter how small.

I'm using mostly metal now because they're cheap and I have a lot of them loaded with different threads. So far they have cut or frayed my thread, but

maybe they will soon.

I have a heavy duty ceramic bobbin. I like the ceramic because it cannot cut the thread, which is very good. you certainly don't want your bobbin to cut the thread in the middle of a fly, especially when spinning deer hair.

Tiemco Ceramic is my workhorse. Have a few older ceramic insert bobbins (griffin, dr slick) and a few older all-stainless ones that see very little action.
