    As my first drop spindle, I love this thing! I tried making my own out of a dowel and toy wheel (as many people suggest) but the wheel was too small and ended up not having enough weight on it for spinning worsted weight yarn. This spinde does great with spinning chunky yarn too. The only downside is that it has no hook at the top (which I commonly see on other drop spindles) so it does "drop" here and there, but you can always just pick it right back up! Also the whorl is quite large, so spinning anything dainty on it might now be a good idea...but you can always have it on a surface and not have any weight pulling at the yarn.

    I really like this spindle. It's easy to assemble. The instructions were a little confusing and I had to look up videos on youtube to really understand them. Once you get the hang of it, it seems much easier than initially.

    The whorl is HUGE compared to the spindle and very heavy. It won't go near the bottom of the spindle correctly, its stuck at 3 1/2 inches from the bottom-7 1/4 inches from the top, which leaves not much room for the spun yarn. My other spindles are about two inches from the bottom. I would advise anyone to NOT buy this thing. The big heavy whorl seems to be made for a very large spindle. The smallish spindle supplied seems like it needs a much smaller whorl.
