Deserves more than five stars
Reviewer: A viewer 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.

I love this thread and it is incredibly strong considering its size. With that said I couldnt believe when I read the review that claimed this thread had been used for everything up to #4 wooly buggers. That gives tyers an unrealistic expectation and honestly would be quite foolish. This is 17/0 thread meant for small dries 22+, not #4 streamers. It does a great job, adds very little bulk, and holds up well when fished. Using a ceramic bobbin is highly recomended.
No build up...

Impossible to create buildup with this thread (that is a good thing). For small midges and mysis patterns this stuff is really greatl, I use this thread a lot. Only downside is that it will take a little getting used to as it will break on you pretty easily.
Only thread to use on very small flies

Does not build up bulk for #18 & smaller flies.
Unit Caenis thread is just too frail 0 Trico is better.Ceramic bobbin a must. Keep as white the make translucent body material shine. Colour with permanent marker for head. I add varnish to thread before whip finishing, rather than varnish after whipping.
