    Scott, the MFC 6/0 is just as nice as the 8/0, just stronger. Lays flat but not flossy like ultra thread. Does not need to be spun or manipulated to behave.

    Simple, dries don't take the beating of rocks and underwater debris. And I only cement them if I'm in the mood. Nothing set in stone with me. Overall though I believe a good whip finish is all that's...

    Byron, I use it and like it a lot. It is only good for small nymphs and light splitshot. If I use heavy nymphs and BB split I use a large piece of yarn. It is very sensitive if used properly.

    For my dries just a 3-4 turn hand whip finish. Nymphs and streamers I use a thin head cement. I've been using Harrops water base for several years now also, seems to work just fine.
