  1. This site does not open so that I can read the article what can be done about this?
  2. just one, with adjustable tension.
  3. I have seven Rite bobbins. My wife has six Rite bobbins. I agree with Fly Punk that the adjustment feature is great for using very light thread. In my opinion the Rite bobbin makes others archaic by comparison. The click adjustment feature is super sensitive.
    Good tying,
  4. 3, but one broke, IM probably goin to go pick up two more, both ceramic, really soon
  5. 23 bobbins, 3 are Nor-vise and used most often
  6. I have five but I share them with my son and we tie together weekly :)
  7. 32 bobbins, of all descriptions. Wouldn't want to lose a few seconds changing thread.

    Actually I bought another guy's fly tying kit, and he had 30. I asked him why so many, and and he said "Wouldn't want to waste time changing thread colors."
  8. I tie almost every night, but I'm small-time in the bobbin department. I have seven.
