I am a big fan of this thread. I use it pretty much exclusively for my regular tying.
I love the strength for size ratio and like how it handles.
I now use 10/0 instead of 6/0 (other brand) for standard tying and use 6/0 or 8/0 instead of 3/0 for streamers and steelhead ties.
New colors coming out. I am sold and not looking back
Since Turning to the Veevus, I've never looked back. I use the 10/0 almost exclusively. I don't find the 12/0 as stong. Ive bought it from Scott at Flymart.ca and also from Ray at Hook Line and Sinker.
I'm with Wayne on this one... I used it for a couple months to give it a fair shot and it is VERY strong but frays easily from wax and I find it really really grippy when setting a wing. I think for tying little trout flies it would be perfect though because of its strength, for classic salmon flies its a no go for me, oh and you do have to untwist to get it to fully lay flat as with any thread I've ever used, your bobbin does the twisting while making turns its not the thread... For me you can't beat uni 8/0 or utc 70!
