Good for very small flies
Reviewer: A viewer from Peralta, NM US
I think this is very good thread for very small dry flies. I only use this thread for dry flies in sizes 18-24. I find for nymphs however, utc 70 denier is perfect. This thread would have trouble tying down some of the heavier materials used in tying nymphs. It whip finishes very good if you use a tool. It is too weak to whip finish by hand.
Finest thread useful for tiny flies and hidden wra
Reviewer: A viewer from Southern Connecticut
This is an excellent product. You will need to decrease the tension on your fly-tying bobbin. It has a low break strength, but it is not designed for that. It is only available in white, but takes a permanent marker. The thread is useful for small flies, but I use it primarily to make hidden tie-off points, such as those at the base of a parachute wing. When used for its designated purposes, this is an excellent thread.
Nice and light
Reviewer: A viewer from Little Elm, TX US
I use this thread when I have tied 18 size flies. It is strong enough but does require a light hand. I would recomend breaking it a few times to get used to its breaking point. Once I did I had no problems getting it to hold well. It dissapeared well into the colors of the fly, I was originally worried about only being able to get white. I do however find I like to change to a black 6/0 to tie the head. The spiderweb does a really good job for tying up tiny flies but would take a lot to form a head.
