New Freedom Flyer For My Ashford Joy!

I am planning on spinning more art yarns and I was limited to the size of the orifice openings on my Ashford Joy.  So I was very excited to see that Ashford created the Freedom Flyer for the Joy!  One inch orifice!  This is the company picture of the Freedom Flyer.

Here is my new Flyer on my wheel.  Ranger wanted to check it out.
 Justin decided to help him.
 Here is my regular flyer with some silk that I'm spinning on it.
 Here is the BFL that I just finished spinning from a previous post.  These will be the first yarns I will ply on my new Flyer!

Happy Spinning!

How do you like it after using it for awhile now? I'm still looking for the perfect wheel for me and I have my eyes on the Joy with the FF.

Hi Stacy,
I have only tried spinning with it once and I was not familiar with how to use this orifice. I will take it with me to the next guild meeting and get some pointers or ask for help at my LYS. Frustrating that it is not intuitive.
