Default Re: Bobbins??

I use different length bobbins for different flies and materials. The shorter bobbins have smaller tubes. Smaller tubes allow a more precise thread control because there is less space at the thread outlet for the thread to move. The tube is also shorter and a short tube gives you better control of the tube.

I use longer bobbins with wider tube diameters for floss.

If I can make a comparison, a bobbin is like a water hose with a nozzle on the end. The thinner the nozzle and the closer you can hold the nozzle to your hand, the more control you have.

I think that you should use the shortest bobbin and the shortest tube that is practical for the best thread control and the size thread you are using. You can pound tack with a framing hammer but a tack hammer does a better job.
