Variety of colors
Reviewer: A viewer from Western NY US
It's nice to have some color options other than silver, gold, and copper. Take note that the colors are exactly as the picture shows so I've found that using brown wire for ribbing on brown dubbing doesn't provide much contrast so buy lots of differnt colors.
Best wire for ribbing #16 & bigger flies
Reviewer: A viewer from East Rand, Gauteng ZA
I use nothing ele by Ultra-wire.
Best on #16 & bigger flies, all the way up to #10 (Brassie size is better on #8 & bigger).
Stretch by stroking with your fingers if a bit too thick for #16. Will not tarnish.
I use Silver on Black nymphs. Amber (not Copper) on PTN's and Gold for GRHE.
For Czech nymphs, the silver or gold gives best contrast.
Good wire for most size trout flies.
Reviewer: A viewer from Cumming, GA US
I use this wire on flies #12 & smaller, it's a hair small for #12 as visibility is concerned, it still provides a ribbed effect & durability. This wire works well all the way down to size #20, much smaller than that you'll want the extra small stuff. but yeah it's like they say, don't sweat the small stuff. this is good stuff. buy it.

I have been using this for ribbing and have had no problems. Exactly what you are expecting from wire. Wraps nicely and has good coloration that stands out well on a fly. I have been using it on 14 and smaller hooks.
