Default Thread Breaking

Lately I've been experiencing thread breaking problems with a particular brand of tying thread. I don't think it's a burr or something in the bobbin as I've changed through several bobbins and still seems to break with less tension than some other brands. I'd like to hear any comments, and any suggested brands, pro or con. Thanks.

If you havent had problems in the past with the brand in question, it propbably means there was a bad lot or something.
