This product is great for the part-time or beginning fly-tier like me. I haven't invested in a bobbin for all of my spools yet and this makes it fast and easy to switch them out. The quality of the product is superb especially for the price. The hexagon shape of the handle is a nice feature on a bobbin of this price. If youÃ¢â¬â¢re a part-time fly-tier no need to spend the money on more expensive bobbin threaders.
...but this is yet another tool I've avoided purchasing, making do with some leftover backing to thread bobbins. The bobbin tool definitely makes it faster and easier, though I deducted one star because the wire seems a little too soft and easy to deform to me. The fact that it is also a half hitch tool is handy and also the reason I decided to give it a try. I also like the hex stock it's made from; one less thing that rolls off the table.
I am so very glad I ordered this product. I used to fiddle around trying to thread my bobbin with monofiliment loops and trying to suck the thread throught the bobbin, and I now realizze that was completely insane. Thank God for this tool. Noone has any business tying flies without one of these.
