I use Gutterman Skala thread the equivalint of Danvilles 70 denier and 140 denier. Because it is not waxed I do wax it on my own. John I do believe you mentioned to me to try bow string wax, and although I haven't had time to use them yet, but I do like the feel of them. I am going to Boise for work in a few weeks, and plan on giving them a try while I am there. Thanks to both of you for your experience in this. I wasn't quite sure how it would react, but feel much better now. Love this forum here!
