View Full Version : tensioned lazy kate

11-16-2007, 10:48 AM
I'm new to spinning on a wheel and would really like to get a tensioned lazy kate. I've noticed that there are two types - upright and arched.

Does anyone prefer one over the other? For instance is one more stable than the other or does the fiber spool off better on one of them?:???:

Any comments would be appreciated!:)

Stringcat! I was just about to post this exact question. To me, it seems like the arched one might be more stable. I hope you get some replies!

thanks for the reply! That's what I was thinking too!

I searched around and found a vendor who advertised that the arched version means "no more tipping over."
