tensioned lazy kate
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!

Thanks.

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!

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