Help with BOBBINS needed! in The Fly Tying Bench Posted September 7, 2009 · Report reply Hi Sockeye Guy, You are tying with heavy thread and high tension. I have never had any problem with the C&F designs one, Check out the rite bobbin, I like the tension feature, and it is a economically priced tool with good quality. I personally have trouble with the single arm of the rite, I have tied with a dual arm for so long that it feels odd to me. Bobbins and vices are two tools that I do not scrimp on, you use them a lot, so get what is high quality and will last a long time, and perform well for a long time. If you would like to borrow a C&F to try, PM me. Cheers, Jeff, aka Futzer.
