I have totally 6 of this ceramic bobbin holder, 2x 3Ã¢â¬Å and 4x 4Ã¢â¬Å. They are really nice to use. You have to take care that you adjust the right tension for your spool. The only weakness is that there are two ceramic inserts each one on both ends of the tube. I had some problems to get the thread thru the inserts but if you take a bobbin threader I can really recommend this tool.
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.
Ceramic is the way to go!

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.
