Incredibly strong thread for all saltwater flies, bass bugs, big streamers, and steelhead flies. Saltwater/bass thread is nearly as strong as Kevlar®, yet unlike Kevlar it does not cut the material on which it is wound. Also takes bright-colored dyes well. 100 yards per spool. Made in USA.

Like the breaking strength, don't like the thread,
April 4, 2013
from Blacksburg, VA
"I like the breaking strength on this thread, great for anything requiring tight winding like spinning hair or adding dumbbell eyes. However, I have found that unless I add extra wax to the thread the fibers tend to separate from one another while I tie which is very frustrating. Hard to tie a nice head when half of the strand of thread is spinning separately. Part of the problem is likely the aluminum bobbin I use but other threads do not do this nearly as badly. I plan to switch to monofilament for tightly wound patterns."
Response from Orvis:By Orvis Customer Service Team, April 11, 2013
Thank you for your feedback regarding this product. While we understand your frustration with the fibers separating, this is an issue common with all polyester threads. One way to avoid this happening is by spinning the bobbin to put a twist in the thread before wrapping. When this isn't done, the polyester unfurls due to the reverse twist being put into the thread by the rotation of the bobbin. As always, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our products.
