I did a quick search and didn't find a lot of posts mentioning support spindles.

Tibetan or Russian spindles are my favorite way to spin fiber. My favorite maker is Neal Brand.https://www.etsy.com/shop/nealbrand His spindles sell so quickly I'm lucky to have any.

I started learning how to spin on drop spindles but I'm always trying to get the longest length before I wind on. I find that with a support spindle I allow myself to spin shorter lengths before winding on, which saves me the shoulder aches and actually goes faster since I'm not fighting my spindle. I spin in my lap or off the table.

Does anyone else prefer a support spindle?
