Default Re: Bobbins??

One reason I can think of would be to keep your hand away from the hook point. For example the standard and shorty rite bobbins are awesome for trout flies and even bass flies but if I am tying really big pike flies or somethin, the magnum keeps my knuckles away from the hook point. With the shorty or even the normal size, I would likely end up cutting up my knuckles pretty bad.
