Vibrant #100 Rod Whipping Silks in Mini-Cones of 1090 yards – great for furling silk fly lines!
Russ…the Kimono thread looks awesome…! Very nice hue and sheen. – Mike C. (USA)
These threads are vibrant, quite fine, and available in a range of colors that seems to have been created for rodmakers. I’m extremely pleased to be able to offer Kimono silks because I’m confident they will be well received and, in fact, may become our top selling line. The big spools are ideal for production rod work, but also if you’re the sort of DIY angler who likes to create furled leaders and furled lines! We have these Mini-Cones available in 7 colors:
#355 Mossy Oak
#373 White Rice
#375 Zen Zen
Russ, Just wanted to drop you a line about the Kimono silk thread I got from you. On the first line I made I used YLI, worked out ok. When I started making the second line with the Kimono thread, I noticed that the thread’s diameter was more uniform and did not have any knots where the thread was joined when it was spooled. It took two tries, but with the Kimono thread, I was able to reduce the length of the line 15% which resulted in a tighter furl….The Kimono thread is “the bomb” for furled silk lines!…(second email)…By all means, quote me regarding the quality of the Kimono thread. While most folks probably would not notice the uniform diameter, when you run 2400 feet through your fingers making a line…you notice! – Daniel K. (USA)
