Pete,

As always a very nice fly. And your images once again confirms that you must be the biggest tool addict on your continent. The vise, the bobbin holder - heck, even the hackle pliers - are space age, cutting edge, gizmodian designs. Love it!

And may pale Johnny rest in piece and get a lot of fishing done where he is now - if he likes fishing.

Martin

G'day Martin…
I prefer "kinetic sculpture"… TOOL sounds so utilitarian… Wink
anyhow...
my previous post was a calculated gear head phishing expedition…
I got my hands on a wonderful ergonomic bobbin… SWEEET!
it's not available just yet… SOOON!
'just curious to see if anyone would comment…
several sites had zero results… no one took the bait...
I thought for sure that another bobbin head [like myself] would jump in…
'go phigure!?...

Pete.

>no one took the bait...

Heh! Here on GFF we're always vigilant and have our gear radar tuned in on all the new gadgets and gizmos.

Let me know when and where it's available.

I could easily see an article on bobbin holders coming up, and new and different models would be obvious contenders.

Martin

Faruk Ekich designed and built his "Ultimate Bobbin" a while back… it dispenses thread at a calibrated tension great enough to hold material but not so much as to allow for thread breakage… the internal spring that generates the tension can be quickly and easily "reset" every 24" [or sooner during the tying process]… the "reset" is a one handed motion that has become part of my tying routine and is well worth any preconceived inconvenience [ie: non-event]… I've become quite dependent on the thread rewind /retract function… and NO more manually rewinding thread after using the bobbin hanger function...
While his original design is still very much available [I use & enjoy mine very much], Faruk's latest tool evolution has allowed for a price reduction without sacrificing quality nor function…
This new S-series utilizes the same thread tensioning system as the original but incorporates an injection molded durable polymer fuselage that results in a very comfortable tool that rests in the hand very nicely while dispensing thread at the pre-set calibrated tension… As with both of his bobbins, more tension can be manually applied by "palming" the thread spool with finger tip pressure…
If we are "lucky", Martin may be doing one of his enlightened educational articles regarding all things Bobbin… a comparison of quality tools that every tyer relies on… and I eagerly await his formidable schooling and technical insights…
Standing by to stand by for news…
update:
the initial prototype is outstanding…
some details are being tweaked prior to the major production run…
if all goes as planned, the S-series Automatic will be available for the Symposium in November [if not sooner]…
