STANDARD SLIDING HOOK FLYERS
Fill your bobbins evenly with the squeeze-and-slide stainless steel hook. Fibreglass arms make these flyers light and strong. The yarn is controlled in the hook as you spin. The flyer is available natural or lacquer and includes one bobbin.

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.
Great! Arrived timely, works as promised
It is just what I needed to ply large amounts.
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.
I like it, the jumbo bobbins work well for me. A lot easier than using the hooks to spread the yarn on the bobbin.
