R3021 Premium Japanese Silk Rod Winding Thread "A"
Silk is the world’s strongest natural fiber, stronger that steel in tensile strength. Japanese silks have long been recognized as the finest in the industry. Their colors are vibrant and true, and the texture of the thread is incredible. An average fly rod uses less than 20 yards of thread. That is less than $1.00 worth of the best thread you can get. Treat yourself to the best. The sizes are rated in a different manner than American makers. The size 100 is equivalent to a 3/0 American and size 50 is equivalent to size “A”. You must use a silk color preserver like Color Rite to prevent the thread from darkening and /or streaking. Metallic colors are bottom row only!
