|Bobbins are the critical tool in tying since they must keep smooth tension on the thread spool and have super smooth inserts to apply the thread to your fly. To this end, we have created two series of bobbins that handle these tasks with ease. Both series have delrin feet for smooth tension on the thread spool and have either dual ceramic or titanium oxide funnel inserts for smooth application of thread to fly. These funnel shaped inserts allow for a smoother application of thread as the bobbin is rotated and they cause less breakage than traditional pipe or straight edged inserts.

- Dual Ceramic or Titanium Inserts
- Delrin Feet
Dr.Slick 4" Ceramic Bobbin (CBOB4) certainly maintains the Dr's tradition. This ceramic coated bobbin protects thread from breaking mid wrap by providing smooth surface inside the thread tube. The spring metal arms squeeze the thread spools perfectly to create just the right amount of tension to keep your thread wound tight.
Dr.Slick 4" Titanium Bobbin (TBOB4) maintains the Dr's high standards very well. The titanium coated thread tube of this premium bobbin protects thread from breaking mid wrap by providing an always smooth surface inside the thread tube. Because it is titanium, this smooth surface lasts years longer than other bobbins. The consistent spring metal arms hold your thread spools with just the right amount of tension to keep your thread wound tight.
