Question about UNI-Thread


Recommended Posts

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?)
