Not what I expected from Orvis -

The thread I ordered was overall disappointing. I had ordered one that was supposed to be olive in color and when I received it it wasn't olive at all, more of a bright evergreen although labeled olive. The spools are also cheaply made. The threads are useable I just expected better from a company known for quality like Orvis.
Very nice quality -

Needs this tint of thread for flys. It is sturdy and does fuzz up hardly at all. Very durable and most of all the trout seem to like it too.

I didn't realize that there could be a difference in threads but the texture of this thread seems to be more consistent and lay better that what I was using.

orvis has a great selection of threads and i can always count on it being of good quality

I tie with mostly 6/0 thread. This is the strongest 6/0 thread I have ever tied with. I use this thread for tying size 20 zebra midges because I do not have to put a lot of thread of to make a body. Great thread.
Decent Thread -

I'd recommend this to a friend. It's decent thread. It hold up well but breaks a lot more than other threads I've used in the past. Not my first choice but certainly not my last choice as far as tying thread goes.
