Ceramic is the way to go!
Reviewer: A viewer from Baldwin City, KS US
I have been using a non-ceramic bobbin for quite awhile now and have had problems with my thread fraying and breaking. Ceramic is the way to go! No more worries. Plus, Dr. Slick makes great tools so the quality is top notch. A nice addition to my tool set.
Had to try a ceramic bobbin...
Reviewer: A viewer from Conyers, GA US
Since they same to be one of the things to have, I decided to give the Dr. Slick 4" bobbin a try. I haven't worn out any all metal bobbins yet, but what the heck. Pluses include ceramic material well sheltered in the steel tube and the delrin feet seem to give a more consistent tension than some of my brass ones. Down side is general construction looks like my cheapo economy bobbins, and the tip at about .140" diameter will only go into the gape of a size 14 hook, no-go in a size 16 hook. So a little disappointed in fit & finish, but in all honesty it has become my main bobbin.
