    "Uni-Thread" is the bonded, polyester thread that's been popular for many years. But Uni Products also offers a nylon thread marketed as "Uni-NYLON" and sold in denier sizing (70d and 210d). It's a...

    Of the two, UTC ties the flattest, but not by a significant margin. But it's also more flossy than Danville and more prone to fraying in my experience. I prefer Uni-Nylon to either.

    Hey Joe,
    Veevus 30d GSP is half the price for a 50%+ larger spool than semperfli nano. Same traits as any other gsp, including being stronger than you'd ever need.

    It's a water-based paint that sets at room temp overnight and is then thermo hardened in an oven @ 300-325 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I don't imagine that's warm enough to disturb the hook temper.

    He exaggerated. It's a muni code, not federal law. And it protects a population of free roaming birds. Residents can still keep their own poultry.

    Standard shank hooks in your choice of wire diameter from standard to 3xh (e.g., Mustad R50 & S80, TMC 9300, 900BL, 3769) or TMC 2488/2488H for a wider gap yet.

    Only one blade is serrated; sharpen the plain edge blade if you wish, not the serrated blade.

    IMO, for $15, I consider them disposables.
