src Posted November 28, 2015 Share #1 Posted November 28, 2015 I have been using UNI-Thread for my strops as I learn rigging. Sometime last year I bought 3 different sizes in a couple of different colors figuring I would find what looked good and what size worked and buy more when I was ready. I noticed that the 3/0 thread unravels very easily and wants to hang up as I form a knot, the 6/0 and 8/0 stay together well. I also noticed the 3/0 is made in Canada and the other two are from Spain. So my question is, is it the gauge that is the issue or is it the location of manufacture? I am ready to buy more in the colors I like but before I pull the trigger on an online purchase I thought I would see what others have to say. Pictures below to help illustrate what I am talking about. Thanks in advance, Sam You can see here that the thread is frayed, it also catches very easily when I try to form a knot. These thinner gauges don't have this problem (feature?) mtaylor and Canute 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
