OK I didn't find this topic when I did a search but if I missed it sorry.
I wanted to do a poll on what wheels everyone used. but couldn't figure out how to so I decided to just ask the question.
What wheel do you have or use the most for those who have multiples.

I have an Ashford traditional but am thinking of another one for bigger bobbins. I feel like I'm done before I get started on the regular bobbins.

Love the wheel so far, but I bought it used and having only two bobbins really sucks! Should be getting a few more this month.

Ashford kiwi which I am trying to sell. I've only had it for about 6 mos. but feel that I have outgrown it. plus I want a wheel that folds up. so I'm saving my pennies for a majacraft suzie.
oh and karen- I feel your pain about the ashford bobbins- they are so small!

Ashford Traditional here as well.  And ditto about the bobbins.  Love the wheel, hate the bobbins.  Also hate how she fits so precariously in the backseat of my car.

Majacraft Little Gem II - she has big bobbins, folds up, and fits nicely in the car.  I adore her  Cheesy

Pre 1980 Ashford Traditional (it was called something different then but I bought it used). 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...

Babe double treadle fiber starter. He's lasted me four years and will probably have to last a few more years (even though I lust after Majacrafts) since I'm pregnant and we are poor. I put a new wheel on my Christmas list this year but that was just a pipe dream  Wink

I have a Kromski Symphony...bought with my first paycheck post school. Love it, though I wish I could use a more portable wheel. Loved the Suzie that was shortly in my possession.

I have a Marjacraft Suzie,the bobbins take 200 grams of fibre.Still i bought 10 bobbins so i can change when i want to a different fibre. I love this wheel,but i also have an Ashford traditional and a Mathilda wheel and an antique wheel. I teach people on the these ones when i am asked.
