We love this stuff. It’s the ideal mid-weight, or standard-weight thread, suitable for most rodmaking and restoration work.
#50 Silk is good for light-weight rods, but ideal for mid-weight rods. Tire silk has a naturally bright and bold luster combined with smooth finish, plus this size #50 thread is easy to wrap with. Available in 171 solid colors. 109 yards/spool.
Available in size #50 & #30, Tire (formerly Clover/Tire) filament silks offer a vast range of colors to the rodmaker who prefers, with the size #50, a slightly more sturdy thread. Or, reach for size #30, when you need a decidedly heavier thread for the big rods: Spey, salmon, striper, bass, & so forth.
