I wonder if it's finer and as strong as Benecchi?

I have been using the Tiemco 16/0 and prefer it over Gordon Griffith 14/0 and Benecchi 12/0...note that the above is ONLY currently available a four shops...my experience with with most European threads is that they are very high quality and some, like Lagartun 74 Denier, are very strong and lay flat off the spool...I am hoping that is the case with this 16/0 thread...


When I have it in my bobbin I will provide further info.

Worth a try I guess. Tried tying a parachute on a 24 Tiemco 100 and I need a new set of eyes

I use Gordon Griffith on the tiny flies but I hate the issues I have with the spooling. The thread always seems to fall off the spool or something... I waste more than I use.
I will give Tiemco a go, thanks for that!

VEEVUS 10/0 Thread colors...

Here are some comparative breaking strengths (straight pull) from Veevus:

“For those interested who are interested, we compared the breaking-strength for the veevus threads with UNI and Benecchi.”

uni 6/0 = around 930g
veevus 6/0 = above 1kg

uni 8/0 = around 450g
veevus 8/0 = above 1kg

benecchi 10/0 = around 650g
veevus 10/0 = around 800g

benecchi 12/0 = around 450g
veevus 12/0 = around 530g

veevus 14/0 = around 520g

veevus 16/0 = around 430g

I've been using a 17/0 thread for a bit but its white - just use a marker to color it. I like those color choices

Great work! I think I would need an electron microscope to get that small. I bet they fish well though.
