I use multiple brands and sizes, but have started to use Veevus more and more. I find it to be very strong for its size. One has to accept non-waxed thread to enjoy it. I only tie fishing flies, and am not a classic fly tier.
I am also a Veevus fan. I use all kinds of different threads of course, but I seem to be using the Veevus 8/0, 10/0 and 12/0 a lot more than anything else these days. Lays pretty smooth and flat, even if you get kinda lazy about spinning the bobbin now and then. Seems very strong for it's size too.
I too have been using the Veevus more and more. I too, am not a classic fly tier but tie for fishing flies. Love the stuff. Can use a lot smaller thread for the given size of fly to make things cleaner and thinner.
Unicord in 12/0 for everything body related and Gordon Griffiths 14/0 for the front work. Love how the unicord flattens out and will not break under normal circumstances. It also splits real easy to put a bit of dubbing in. The Gordon is just a nice thin thread that holds wax well and grips nicely, cheap as well. I've used the others mentioned as well, but always come back to these two.
