    A note about bobbins:

    • Standard Bobbins: Original. Made for wheels whose flyers have a series of hooks on their flyers. Will fit on sliding hooks flyers.
    • Sliding Hook Bobbins: Newer, slightly larger. Made for wheels that feature a sliding hook on their flyer. 
    • SD Bobbins will fit on DD flyers, however the wheels can only operate in SD mode.
