Default New Rite Bobbin Design

Hey, everyone. Check this out. I use the Rite Bobbin, but have had a complaint for year now of the tube coming loose. This new model seems to have addressed the tube problem and has added some features that would appear to make this bobbin something all fly tyers would enjoy using regularly. I intend to pick up a couple at my spring tying expo here in Idaho Falls.

Pretty slick. I'll have to try a new model. I like the older one that I have, but the rubber collar (where they now have "O" rings) keeps slipping down.

Kelly: I hope they are paying you on commission. I will have to give that little toy a try after looking at the video. Thanks for sharing.

I have one and I love the tension design (bought last year at the Expo). Not sure if I am really sold on the open side as I have had problems with tangles of material when left to dangle. A minor problem, but not sure I would buy more.

Cool knot design, will have to try it one of these times.
