The sheen on this fly tying 40 denier filament will reflect and blend with various colors of materials. A strong thread for small flies with breaking strength of 4 oz.. 200 yd. spools.

Deserves more than five stars

Reviewer: from California USA

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.

Got this for my small flies. Pretty strong for it's thickness and wraps well, again I use only on the small flies.

Excellent breaking strength and the color really blends nicely with dubbing for tricos.

Super strong for the size

Reviewer: from Greenville, SC US

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!
