Good for small flies, little or no thread build up
Reviewer: A viewer from Cumming, GA US
Ultra Thread 70 denier is great for small flies. There is little or no thread build up, reducing eye crowding. Great for size #18 and smaller, especially midges, allows you to have more say so on how the body looks b/c of the low to 0 thread build up. I recomend this to anyone tying primarily #18 & smaller.
Second To None

This is the standard to which all thread should be measured. While I tend to switch to a stronger thread for some streamers, this thread is great for dry flies, nymphs, and even strong enough for most streamers.
Terrific for "art flies" or fishing flies
Reviewer: A viewer from Barboursville, WV US
I can't imagine a better thread than Ultra 70, especially for tying classic wet flies and Atlantic salmon flies. It's strong, lays flat and comes in all the right colors. The only drawback I've found is that Ultra 70 white thread occasionally tangles on the spool. Other colors don't seem to have the problem.
Perfect, Perfect, Perfect

I wish I ordered this and the 140 in every color offered. I just started tying not too long ago and this thread is awesome for not building up too much bulk, or if needed I can leave as is and add some bulk. Its also pretty damn strong for its size. Great price too. I wish you carried more of the available colors they make.
One of the best threads available
Reviewer: A viewer from Houston, TX
Sits flat on the hook when you need it to and can easily cord up. Easy to split for dubbing loops and comes in a number of colors. This is the thread I usually have on my bobbin. Works well for small flies too!
