The small diameter ceramic no-wear tube and removable vinyl grip on the standard model of this fly tying tool allows intricate work with fine thread on the smallest to large hooks. Features a solid brass arm and a click drag adjustment to regulate the thread tension. The standard model has a range of 1 to 9 oz. tension and the mag model has a range of 2 to 16 oz. Like an auto mechanic's torsion wrench (before the days of air-driven wrenches), this bobbin takes the guesswork out of winding thread, and all but eliminates broken thread at the same time. The Half Hitch offers all the great features of our other Rite Bobbins, with the addtional convenience of being able to whip finish flies using the specially-tapered barrel.

The Best Bobbin Out There
Reviewer: A viewer from CANON CITY, CO USA
I found recommendations for this bobbin in a thread, and I'm certainly glad I took their advice. Adjustable tension works like a charm. Very smooth release. Half hitch tool is nice also.

I've been trying many different bobbins. The half hitch mag is by far my favorite. I have two so far and hope to end up with about 30 to avoid the need to keep re-threading every time I want to change color.
Rite bobbin-versatile & functional
Reviewer: A viewer from Canton, OH US
What a great tool! Easiest & best tension adjustment available, which is really nice when tying on a 2x fine hook & then switching to a heavier hook. PLUS it has a full ceramic tube. IMHO, far preferable to "inserts" at each end of the tube.
