Anyone who ties small trout flies and isn't perfectly content with their current thread choices should give UNI 17/0 a try. Impressively strong for its size, so even a newbie to small flies needn't shy away. White takes marker if desired, but the thread is so inconspicuous that it's not really necessary. UNI 17/0 is a "flossy" thread, so it doesn't get along well with excessive handling or dry, rough skin. Finally, if you're seeking a replacement for Brand "G" 10/0, a spool of UNI 17/0 should be on your list.
I bought this thread to experiment and was surprised at the strength. This thread is strong enough to spin deer hair! I recommend using a ceramic bobbin to reduce frays, and whip finish with 2 snug turns. Only downside, good luck building a body with 17/0!
This is a great thread when you are looking for very little thread build up. I use this thread for most of my flies that are size 22 and smaller or when I'm tying in or off several materials in one location and don't want the thread build up.
