The new Smhaen Bobbins have been creating quite a buzz. These high quality bobbins feature a unique tensioner that assures you have the correct thread tension for the type of fly you are tying. The nice thing about this tensioning system is that it is independent of the thread spool, so changing spools is quick and easy. Other bobbins that have the tensioner built into a spindle that holds the spool, require more effort to change threads. The Smhaen Bobbins are available in a short Midge version (blue) and a standard length version (red). Both feature ceramic tubes.
