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.

Re: Thread Breaking
just tied up about 7 flies. have a red thread that looks like someone took 4 or more red threads and made one thread. has anyone else seen thread like this? couldn't whip finish it with my tool had to do it by hand. threw it away. put on a spool of gudebod and seemed fine.

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