    Excellent Fly-Tying Thread - 10/31/2013

    Despite minor spool (plastic) and label (no hole; often falls off) issues, the thread is excellent. It’s everything it should be in terms of strength and material hold. For me, the basis of many great flies.

    Good Thread, but... - 5/29/2013

    It's good thread, but with a cheap plastic spool that often times has no place to lock-in the thread when you are done tying. I also wish they had a better labeling system that is not as apt to, well, fall off. If you use a fly tying station like I do with metal rods to store your thread on, you have to punch a hole in the label before it will go on the rod. The bobbin will also punch a hole in the label. Both of these leave you continually trying to hold the label in place so you will know what size the thread is. Other threads don't have this problem. Good thread that needs a spool and label that meets Orvis' standards. Orvis should AT LEAST switch to a label with a pre-punched hole in it to save some of the hassle. I should probably have rated this 3 stars - though this didn't seem like it would have properly reflected on the quality of the thread.

    Have tied about 15 flies with this so far and no problems. Would buy more.

    Thread works very well, is strong and also flattens out nicely. Highly recommend.

    The product was exactly what I wanted but the most impressive part was the speed of delivery. Great service.

    This spool was correct. The last one I received was not wound correctly but they got this right!

    I ordered TAN thread and what I got is more of a GOLD color. The spools are cheap low quality plastic.
