Description

Translucent half-round plastic nymph ribbing and body material that has many uses for segmented bodies. Soft and easy to work with. The large size (hook size 1-8) is great for large stoneflies, streamers and saltwater patterns. The medium size (hook size 8-12) for crazy charlies, stoneflies and large nymphs. The nymph size (hook size 12-16) is good for midge to medium nymphs and the midge size (hook size 16-20) for midges and small nymphs. Packaged on a spool.

Useful

Reviewer: A viewer from Vermont

My only complaint is that the black color is not translucent. Other than that it's great.

Hareline's half round rib is much stretchier and it won't build up the underbody of the fly because it compresses easily. This also makes it difficult to not stretch too much when you're tying.

This Vinyl rib doesn't stretch so much, which means that it keeps it's shape as you wrap it, though it will build up the underbody.

Interestingly, both products black color rib is opaque while the other colors are translucent.

Great body material

Reviewer: A viewer from Ojai, CA US

works fantastic as long as you take the time to lay it correctly on the hook. I use it mostly for caddis and stonefly patterns but it's uses are endless. A great product at an incredible price.

Tough Stuff

Reviewer: A viewer from Huffman, TX US

Used this for some nymphs and the ribbing effect was very good. Found the material to be very tough and has held up well after several fish and drifts.

Cool Material

Reviewer: A viewer from Peralta, NM US

The first time I bought this material I was disappointed because I got the midge size and tried to tie it into a size 22 hook and it ended up looking more like a scud. When I use it on medium sized nymphs however it works great. You can add a flashy underbody that shows through and it gives great segmentation to fly patterns.
