This thread is stranded GSP and has incredible strength for its size. Advertised as 'almost unbreakable', it allows tying techniques never before possible with minimal thread build-up. It is loosely twisted and, unlike other GSP threads, can be split for dubbing loops if desired, although it is fine enough to be doubled for loops as well. The white thread takes marker colors easily. 100 denier, 50 meters per spool. See Other Details for suggestions about tying.

Other Details

Because GSP fibers are quite tough, they can damage the blade edge on fine scissors and stainless bobbins. Semperfli recommends using a ceramic bobbin and cutting with a razor blade. Nano Silk will take most dubbing waxes and this helps the thread stay in place as well as serve as a great dubbing thread. Although it is tough enough to make durable flies without a coating of head cement, UV cure and water-based cements can be used for appearance or texture. Solvent-based glues and coatings are not recommended as they might compromise the fibers' strength.

"One thread to rule them all" 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Springville, UT.

Semperfli's Nano Silk thread is simply amazing! Between the 12/0,18/0 and now the new 6/0 Predator thread... These threads are going to make all of my other threads obsolete... Highly recommended and I will be purchasing again! This thread takes marker colors nicely if there's a color not listed.

Some tricks on how to use it 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Chile

I personally use the 6/0 and the 18/0 threads and they are the strongest thread ever. I only use the old ones for coloring the flies and not to assume the cost of throwing them away.

There are 2 tricks to use it efficiently:
1. Put some wax (dubbing wax, a candle, whatever) on the first 1/2 to 3/4 inch to prevent it from spinning on the hook, this was Kelly Galloup's idea.

2. To cut it, use old scissors, do NOT use your favorite can dull them very fast. It is that strong.

Strongest Thread on the Market 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Maine, USA

This is THE strongest thread I have ever used to make predator flies that are incredibly durable. It seems expensive, but because the thread is so strong you need far fewer wraps to accomplish secure connections and a solid grip of your materials. It ends up being a cost savings. Since discovering this thread, it's all I use for any fly I tie from 18/0 to 3/0. To give you an idea of how strong this stuff is, 6/0 (100 Denier) has a breaking strength of 8.37 pounds!!! That's Crazy Strong!

6/0 Predator String 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Orillia On, CA

This thread is amazing. Its super strong and small. It really removes excess thread wraps and bulk (which mean's weight) with making big flies. Not cheap but I know its going to be be my go to thread for all my streamers. I don't know how it would hold up in salt water but works great for my bass and pike flies.

You literally cant break it 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Plainville, CT

Incredible high strength material. I bought in white and color it with markers. For anything with alot of deer hair I love it. You can pull so incredibly tight and the thread is strong. Major point, do NOT use good scissors. It WILL dull them fairly quickly.
