Not the best
Reviewer: A viewer from Hamilton, MI US
Not really my favorite thread, it is ok for tying the fly, but when I try and whip finish more than four or five wraps it breaks when I try to pull the loop closed. It is strong, but for some reason it seems to break easily during a whip finish. I much prefer UTC.
I thought I was the only one!

8/0 Uni-Thread remains my go-to thread for just about everything that I tie except for big bass flies and saltwater flies. I decided to read the reviews just to see what others had to say about 8/0 Uni. I was surprised to hear their complaints about breaking during whip finishing. I thought that I was the only person who had this problem and attributed the breaking to a flaw in my whip-finish technique, perhaps being a little too rough at some point in the process. Nice to know that I'm not alone. I still like 8/0 Uni and will continue to use it. It doesn't break often and when it does, the whip finish seems to stay firmly in place.
