8/0 Uni Thread
Easy to work with - wont break easily. best thread maker around in my book .

This is really a pretty good thread. The first time I tried it was for tying up some size 18 Griffith's Gnats and it worked great. I actually prefer it to the 6/0 Uni-Thread, now I use it on all of my trout flies sizes 12 and under. It will occasionally break if you over-tax it though, usually when you're about to do the whip-finish. Other than that, great product for a great price.

Difficult to work with
This thread is 8/0, but the difference between it and 6/0 is marked. It breaks at the drop of a bobbin and constantly lets me get to the tie off and then breaks on me. I have found that I can do about 10 wraps, then let the bobbin hang to allow the thread to unwind for a minute or two and then continue on. I would much prefer to use 6/0, but when I'm tying on a 22 or 24 hook, I can't afford the bulk. It's usable, just be very careful and check your thread constantly. Cannot possibly be used if you are a quick hand at tying. It will also fall apart on your fly after the fish have taken it a few times, so expect that it will only catch 3-4 fish. Have extras in your fly box.

Best out there!
Uni thread in my opinion is far superior than Danville. Only thread I will use!
