This Uni Thread is made of continuous polyester filament that is slighted bonded together, allowing the thread to lay flat on the hook. Uni Thread wraps tightly to ensure true color, even when single layering on midges. 200 yard spools. Uni Thread size: 8/0.

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.

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.

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