    I have used this style (brand) of bobbin for 12 months now. For light threads [3/0] I have found this to be fantastic. The tension is manually and simply adjustable. When you pull a little too much on a 10/0 to 14/0 thread the bobbin can be adjusted to release rather than break. Outstanding for very small flies/light thread.
    The construction is very sturdy (much much better than other similar styles of bobbin). the only disadvantage is it is a little slow to load with new thread. I have purchased 4 and loaded them with my most commonly used threads to over come this issue.

    All other bobbins pale in comparison. The adjustable tension means never breaking your tread again. I have 2 standard and one large model and will probably try the short one as well.
