This is a nice wheel. It's made beautifully, and has a larger diameter wheel than my other spinning wheels. It's so easy to treadle and spin on. The issue I had with it is the small bobbin capacity. I was unable to spin a full 4 oz braid of fiber on just one standard bobbin. I had to get the bulky attachment and bobbins for that. I bought it after I had been spinning a while and already owned other wheels. So I found it a little too basic for me and ended up selling it. But I think this would be a great first wheel for a new spinner. It spins so smooth and nice.
