A question for the weavers:

How much yarn does an end feed shuttle (13" Leclerc or 15" Schacht, I'm assuming these use ~6" pirns?) hold compared to a 15" Leclerc boat shuttle with a 6" bobbin?

Just daydreamin'.

I just did a visual (not scientific in anyway) comparison of the two items in my cupboard. My best guess would be that the pirn for the Schacht 15" end feed shuttle holds at least 1.5 times more yarn than the 6" Leclerc bobbin. It could be a bit more, but I don't think it would be as much as 2x the amount.
