    Very nice tinsel. Would get 5 starts but only giving it 4 stars because the quantity you get is very very very limited on the spool.

    I have used Oval tinsel from other sources that tend to break under even moderate tension. this Orvis product has worked really well.

    I like this tinsel for the flash it adds to my clousers. Seems to hold longer than others I've used.

    I like this tinsel a lot. They price is good and the quality is better. This will add a little bit of shine to a body or whatever else you can come up with to use it for.
