The new Spinolution Bullfrog wheel and other spinning talk

The new  model spinolution BULLFROG WHEEL arrived a few weeks ago. I have  folded it and put it through it's paces . taken it to meetings, taught on it, spun on it  I love it so much

I spin on my echo a lot and my firefly I did a side by side comparison of the echo because the fly wheel is the same size on the bull frog as the Echo

 the bullfrogs treadling engineering is lighter treading  on the bull frog. It is like the Pollywog, only instead of using just your toes like on the pollywog, on the bullfrog the ball of your foot is used and you have a full size foot rest as well. the bullfrog comes with the 16 oz  flyer and bobbins only, not able to interchange head /flyers BUT you can use a 8 oz bobbin in the 16oz flyer on the bullfrog as well. see the photo below the 8 oz bobbin is in middle of the lazy kate for comparison. the 8 oz bobbins are ordered separately 

  I love my echo ! why do I? it is beefy enough for me to use the 32 oz flyer on it! ( I CAN TAKE IT OFF OF MY FIREFLY AND INTERCHANGE IT , SAME WITH THE MONARCH MODEL YOU CAN INTERCHANGE THE HEADS . and I can buy other size upgrades for the Echo as well.. but the Echo even thought it is the same size and weight as the bullfrog  is not as  easy to travel with compared to the bullfrog . the folding top of the SPINOLUTION BULLFROG and the built in Lazy Kate means i can carry less when i go to classes to teach and meetings. 

  here is my bull frog at a meeting

come by and schedule a time to try out the spinolution wheels  contact me  here

I have bullfrogs in stock ready  to ship today  no waiting bullfrog spinning wheel link here 

some students and customers trying  the spinolutions 

spinolution has redesigned there largest wheel the MACH III TO THE 

 i do not have one to try out at the studio  but I  can order any spinolution wheel. The echo is similar to the monarch and the treadling is similar not as much momentum as the Monarch.  the Monarch  larger and has more options don't you  just love the laser design with the butterfly?

I also sell LOUET WHEELS  as well. schedule a time to try out wheels like these spinners did ….
