Good, but I'd pick something else

The item is exactly as I ordered and in perfect condition. My rating is mostly based on the product I received not my personal dislike of it. I was happy to have a new drive band and brake band included. I would however order something different if I had the chance. I thought I would prefer the sliding hook and I do not. It's quite stiff to move and isn't any faster or aesthetically pleasing than the open hooks. I did enjoy finishing the product myself. But again, if done over, I'd order a finished piece. The sandpaper included is not sufficient so get some fine grit if you plan to finish yourself.

Sliding Hook flyer

I do like the larger bobbin that comes with the flyer, however I did notice that the "sliding hook" has to be manually moved... for some reason I thought it did that automatically. I still need to stop spinning to move the ring... also it spins slower than the standard bobbin, so just a small adjustment on my part to get used to that. I am satisfied with the product overall.

Ashford Sliding Hook Flyer

I like it, the jumbo bobbins work well for me. A lot easier than using the hooks to spread the yarn on the bobbin.
