Color Inconsistancy

Reviewer: A viewer from Stuarts Draft, VA US

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.

A good product

Reviewer: A viewer from Omaha, NE US

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.

Phasing out my 3/0 UNI supply

Reviewer: A viewer from Huntington Beach, CA US

I started tying 4 years back & started with 3/0 UNI because I tie a lot of saltwater flies. At the start, it was almost exclusively saltwater. I have experienced the fraying & breaking of this thread many times and a serious drawback in my opinion, is that it tends to "white out." By this, I mean the thread starts to appear lighter & dust off the wax residue, such that a strong red can appear almost dark pink, when whip finished or pulled tight (that is, if it doesn't break first!) I am changing to "Big Fly" thread because I'm tired of 3/0 breaking & 'dusting'. The only way I've found to counteract the lightening of the color is to apply at least 2 coats of head cement to try & make the color what it was on the spool. Many saltwater patterns use bucktail, lots of it .. so thre's a good deal of cranking down the thread. 3/0 Uni isn't the right one for me. We all learn, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly........
