Semperfli Classic Waxed Thread 12/0
Note: The fluorescent red is much closer to a fluorescent fire orange in color.
Semperfli's Classic Waxed thread is a relative newcomer to the American market but more than holds it's own with the old industry standards (Uni, UTC, etc...). Excellent tensile strength, splitable, flat (but not too flat...) and slightly waxed for added material grip, this thread offers everything a tier could ask for in a thread.
- 240yds per spool
- extruded to make it semi-flat (think slightly flatter than Uni)
- lightly waxed
- 30+ excellent colors
Here's what Semperfli has to say:
"Our Classic Waxed Thread has been developed after examining the traditional waxed threads used by fly tiers world-wide. Our polyester threads have the innovation that always occurs with Semperfli products. We extruded our polyester thread so that it is flatter than other threads giving more grip to prevent materials slippage. With a light wax coating to provide grip but not enough to clog a bobbin holder. Strength has always been a base line consideration at Semperfli so our 8/0 is 40% stronger than comparable threads. Finally we made sure the flat profile thread was easy to split! We then went that one final step, adding 240 yards or thread compared to other manufacturers 200 yards making it highly cost effective."
