Using a fly shuttle results in a quicker pick rate, as there is less time spent in catching and positioning the shuttle, than with hand throwing.
The shuttle flies along on the shuttle race, within the shed, is caught in the box and then with a pull, is thrown again
Some weavers use them all the time, others when weaving cloth that is the full width or almost the full width of the loom
When first used, there is a practice time required to co-ordinate throwing, beating and treadling, to establish a rhythm.
Fly Shuttles are available for the Octado, Spring, Delta and Megado looms
