What Is Semperfli Classic Waxed Thread?
A single core, classic polyester thread designed specifically for fly tyers. With 8/0 & 6/0 traditionally used by fly tyers and a 12/0 targeted for smaller dry flies and Euro nymphs. With the 3 sizes these threads & lightly pre-waxed will appeal to fly tyers world-wide. Laying flatter than other threads this makes Classic Waxed Thread better for bodies, will grip materials more with flatter profile and also tie off better. As a polyester thread it has approx. 20% stretch.
Manufactured from single core, lightly twisted polyester this means Classic Waxed Thread is both easier to split for dubbing and importantly will lay flatter than rounder core, tighter twisted threads available today. Strength of thread is important, breaking strains are 6/0 938gm 33.01oz, 8/0 754gm 26.6oz (300gm or 67% stronger than market leading Uni, Source Global Fly Fisher *1) and 12/0 489gm 17.25oz.
