The UNI thread is a good thread, but somewhat limited on colors. I use the 3/0 size for the majority of my nymph and dry fly tying. It is a good product but a bit on the round side, which makes it a bit more dificult to produce the head.
I have used this thread for some time now and have found that there are color differences between spool batches. I recently purchased some olive color that is quite a bit lighter than the same olive 3/0 UNI I have been using. I twist the thread to overcome the issues of breaking and splitting mentioned in other reviews.
This is the thread I use when tying larger streamer type patterns. It works great for tying large Clouser patterns for stripers because the quality of the thread is awesome and the strength of it is just what you need. I highly recommend using UNI products.
Spins deer hair easily. What more do you need? Probably not the strongest out there, but plenty strong for spinning hair. It seems like waxed thread is stronger than non-waxed, but I'm not sure why that would be - just an observation.
