This is really great tying wire. You can use it for tying bodies, ribs, even for weight or an underbody. I have yet to see a different wire that is as good quality, has as many sizes or colors available. I use this stuff for anything but dry flies.
I just bought Ultra Wire in the brassie size for tying Copper Johns. The colors are great and really stand out on the body. I would probably recommend the medium size for Copper Johns sz 16 and larger...the brassie size is a little small, but still works just fine.
This wire is great for what it is most popularly used for which is ribbing. It also works great as wire in dubbing brushes. Spins well but does not break. You can match colors to the color of your dubbing brush.
As the name suggests, this stuff is the go-to for tying brassies of all sizes. Its nice to have it in my collection as all of my brassies now look pretty uniform. It also seems to lay a little easier on the hook vs. the other wire sizes.
I have been using the ultra wire for some time now and when I bought the full package with all the different colors it was unbelievable the fish catching colors and bodies you can form with it.Keep up the good work.
