I use a Louet S17, which I love.  I have the jumbo flyer on it which holds an incredible amount of fiber.  I also have an incredibly old ashford.  I geuss its a traditional, but it looks much different.  The traditiobal is the closest thing to the model I have.

Majacraft little gem. bobbins hold a ton of fiber as it is, yet i went to the flea market and bought some super cheap wooden bobbins for storage.

I have a Lendrum with all its attachments and I LOOOOOVE her.  If she was available, I'd ask her to marry me.

I have a Lendrum Double Treadle. I've also bought the jumbo plying head and the fast flyer.

To be honest I can't see that I'd really need another wheel as this one does everything. You can also get a very fast flyer and a quill thingie for it.

I do also have a very small antique wheel that needs a lot of repair. I think it would've been used for spinning very fine yarn as the bobbin is tiny.

i too have the Lendrum DT with jumbo flyer, fast flyer etc.  I love this wheel!!!!  Kiss Spins like a dream, and it will take me a while to outgrow. I started on a ashford joy st, which was too small for my liking, and I truly love a DT.

I have a Kromski Minstrel, which I love - though I wish the bobbins were a bit bigger at times

I also have a Erotel Roberta....she's electronic, and has a ginormous bobbin Smiley

I do wish I had a traveling wheel, though I guess the roberta is considered portable....

I have the jumbo flyer because the Bobbins are huge..I can get just about 200 yds of worsted weight on one. So don't discount the Traditional if you get a good price because the little bobbins. They make a jumbo flyer...

I have been trying to decide it I should get a wooley winder or a jumbo flyer for my Trad. or jump on a Louet S10 on Ebay
