The Shimano Ocea Bobbin Winder is an absolute necessity for anglers looking to rig their blue water tackle like a pro. Whether you are looking to tie the perfect slim-profile PR knot, make your own wind-on leaders, or serve spliced hollow spectra, the Ocea Bobbin Winder is the best tool for the job. This bobbin is in a class of its own with a glass reinforced resin body for increased durability and a streamlined profile for easy handling. A zirconia ring at the tip allows for smooth line delivery and protects the integrity of your line by reducing heat build-up from friction while under heavy tension. The Ocea Bobbin Winder features a unique line locking system that eliminates the need for tying or taping braid to the bobbin spool. Simply wedge the end section of your braid between the two compressed o-rings for a tight grip and begin winding. An adjustable tension knob makes finding the proper tension setting for your application easy, ensuring you get a tight, thin, and secure line to leader connection every time.

Rolls Royce of Bobbins!
June 6, 2020
So glad to see this item at Tackle Direct! I had to order mine from Japan last fall; nobody in Fla. had them, and 50% of the shops I checked at had no idea what I was talking about!
I’m a new convert to slow-pitch jigging, and this tool is an absolute ‘must get’ item for making PERFECT PR bobbin knots. The guides on most slow pitch rods are very small diameter, and the PR knot is the smallest, streamlined 100% connection in existence. For jigging leaders, surf fishing, or any other time that you would use a wind-on, shock leader or topshot that is going thru your guides at a high rate of speed, the PR knot is what you want.
I have used other brand bobbins belonging to friends, and this Shimano bobbin is the hands down winner for quality of construction, fit and finish, and smoothness. The price may seem steep, but I paid half again for shipping from Japan! Trust me, it’s worth every penny, and once you see the results, you will laugh at every other connecting braid-to-mono knot! ( Use tip, crank the spool tension on the tool VERY TIGHT for best results. You want to have the tool tip stay right in contact with the leader while spinning it.)
ProsQuality, ease of use, smoothness, perfect results.
ConsPrice seems steep, but it is what it costs everywhere, and I?d rather deal with Tackle Direct!
