    This is great thread! Small diameter, yet very strong. Move over Uni 8/0!

    I have returned three out of four spools of tying thread I ordered. These spools contained loose threads or loose loops. I couldn't even find the start of the thread.

    Very good for small flys , fine thread but strong for diameter ratio, can make very neat heads.

    This is a great thread for midges and particularly the white which I use on jujube midges. Small and strong. A real plus when finishing off the head.

    Good product, works as advertised. Only wish the thread that orvis made split better for dubbing purposes.

    I have never used thread of this denier before and was pleasantly surprised at the strength in the thread, I used it t tie in deer and orvis comparadun material, tied in well I was concerned it would break but it did not. I like it and suggest try using the thread on hook sizes 14's /16s
