Because GSP fibers are quite tough, they can damage the blade edge on fine scissors and stainless bobbins. The makers recommend using a ceramic bobbin and cutting with a razor blade. Nano Silk will take most dubbing waxes and this helps the thread stay in place as well as serve as a great dubbing thread. Although it is tough enough to make durable flies without a coating of head cement, UV cure and water-based cements can be used for appearance or texture. Solvent-based glues and coatings are not recommended as they might impair the fibers' strength.
