Strong, smooth, flat, lightly waxed, slow building fly tying nylon thread. It has a breaking strength of about 1 lb. and is recommended for size 14 and smaller flies. Same size as Danville 6/0. 100 yd. spools.

Good for small flies, little or no thread build up

Reviewer: 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

Reviewer: from CANON CITY, CO USA

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.

Converted to Danville

Reviewer: from West Valley City, UT US

The kit that I started tying with included several spools of this thread and I used to have quite a bit of trouble with fraying and breakage. I have since started using Danville 6/0 Flymaster+ instead and found it to work much better for me. I would be unlikely to go back to Ultra Thread in the 70 denier.

One of the best threads available

Reviewer: 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!

Falls apart

Reviewer: from Hudson Valley, NY

I've bought two spools of this. I usually use uni thread but I thought I would give this a try. The first spool was great and I use it regularly. The second spool gave me problems. I don't know if there was a defect but the spool began to unwind from the middle and break and fall apart.
