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 yd. 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"

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.

Strongest Thread on the Market

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

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.
