I have a question about jumbo standard bobbins and sliding hook flyer bobbins.

Are they same? Not same? I have a joy with a sliding hook flyer and i wanted to buy some bobbins used. I am getting different information from all over the place.

Maybe!

From http://www.pacificwoolandfiber.com/ashford-spinning-supplies.html
Ashford Bobbins for Sliding Hook Flyers

These new large sliding hook bobbins will fit the new standard sliding hook flyers from Ashford. They are larger than regular bobbin. If you have a new Ashford Joy, Joy 2 or Ashford Kiwi 2 spinning wheel, or are upgrading to a new Standard Ashford Sliding Hook Flyer, then you will need these bobbins. They are NOT jumbo bobbins. If you have a jumbo flyer (sliding hook or old style), please order the jumbo bobbins above.
Looks like you want "large sliding hook bobbins" for your Ashford Joy.


ETA:I have an Ashford espinner with Jumbo sliding hook flyer. Here are my bobbin's measurements to compare with your bobbins...
Spindle Diameter: 1/4"
Core Diameter (where yarn winds on): 0.8"
Core Length: 3-5/8"
Flange Diameter: 4-5/16"
