Half Hitch MAG
The new “Half Hitch” MAG Bobbin from Rite has several innovative features not yet seen on other bobbins. The O-ring grip doubly acts as a thread-keeper and color code for thread identification. The surgical stainless steel barrel has a slight taper which allows the tier to make a half hitch or whip finish right on the bobbin barrel and easily slip it onto the fly hook — a feature that’s great for tying parachutes and that virtually eliminates the need for a half hitch or whip finish tool. This bobbin, similar to other Rite bobbins, also allows the tier to apply anywhere from two to sixteen ounces of thread tension. MSRP $29.99.
You can purchase Rite Bobbins from your local dealer or directly from the Rite Bobbin Web site.
