If you are like me you shudder at the mere thought of spending $55 on a fly tying bobbin which is the exact reason I launched GCO. I am excited to announce the addition of the new GreenCaddis GC60 fly tying bobbin to the growing selection of fly boxes, hooks and scissors I already offer. I am offering the GC60 at an introductory price of $24.95 but I only received 10 in this first shipment so first come, first served.

    You shudder at $55, but ‘regular price’ is $39.95 after this ‘special sale’

    Rite bobbins are cheaper, and well proven, also, virtually any other bobbin on the market is well proven, and bar one or two, cost much less than $39.95 or even, 24.95

    You picked the wrong marketing tactic with the price.

    Well, I have one, not sure of brand. I love it, but it’s no better than my others I still use – all of them equally now – and the most I paid was 19.95. Would not spend more than $20 for a bobbin today. Having money tools is kind of cool, but I’m out of my gear-head years and gone practical.

    It’s a matter of perspective, I guess. When I started tying everyone was using the Chase bobbin, a very well made mechanical nightmare, with springs, pins, screws, and a large plastic housing. The first “modern” bobbin was the Martarelli, which in 1970 was pretty expensive at $12.50 but it was so clearly superior to the Chase that tyers gobbled them up as fast as they could. In basic design all bobbins in wide use now are identical to the Martarelli, but $12.50 in 1970 currency is probably about the same as $40 is now, so we’re really only being asked to pay the same as we did when the new design came out. It’s hard to know whether the design particulars have been improved enough to justify a substantially higher price than the current norm, which oddly enough is still about $12. Bobbins are one of the last great bargains in fly tying–I’d look carefully at the GCO, try it if possible, before rejecting it just because of price.
