Dr. Slick developed ultra slick glass inserts to handle new synthetic threads as well as traditional extra fine threads (8/0 and finer). These funnel shaped inserts also allow for smoother application of thread as the bobbin is rotated and cause less breakage than traditional pipe or straight edged inserts.

See no difference between this and ceramic

Reviewer: from Colorado

I have been using this bobbin for a couple of months and see no difference between this and ceramic bobbins with the inserts at either end of the tube. A very good bobbin at a good price point.

Reviewer: from Habersham, GA U.S.A.

Very nice so far, nice and comfortable in hand. Huge win for these are of course the price. But the most important part is they haven't frayed the thread. These are the only standard bobbins below the $30.00 price point that hasn't cut my thread. The only issue I've found, which is very minor, is they are a real pain to thread through the tube. Other than that I'm extremely impressed.

glass tube bobbins

Reviewer: from Wisconsin Driftless

Picked up 2 of these as replacements for some bad (thread shredder) bobbins. Have been tying #18-#20 midges & stoneflies for our winter fishing, using 14/0 thread.
Their fine tubes & smooth inserts are a treat, and the price is very reasonable.
As mentioned elsewhere, they re a PITB to thread. Form a loop with some 4#-6# mono & use it to pull the thread thru.
Yes, I will re-order.

Great bobbin

Reviewer: from shenandoah valley, virginia

I have tried every bobbin out there, and I have problems with cutting thread in the smaller sizes, 8/0 and smaller. These, so far, do not. I would rate these ahead of the ceramic, titanium, and ruby tipped bobbins. To make threading super easy, get some GUM dental floss threaders (little blue looped sticks) at the drug store, cheap and work great for cleaning hook eyes too.

Best bobbin for the $

Reviewer: from NJ

I’ve tried expensive bobbins and cheap ones and this is BY FAR, the best bobbin for the $........I’m ordering 2 more right now.
