I'm Always In Trouble


« : December 06, 2010, 11:48:36 PM »

I got the thread today and sewed with it a little to test it out. The color is a bronze tan.

I found no difference between it and poly 92. Actually it felt like Poly as well and wasn't wirey like tenara. It is a triple wound thread and the PTFE bond is very good. No fallout from the thread. Actually I had a difficult time separating the strands to see how many there were.

I was sewing with 92 Poly and switched threads and added just a touch more tension. Other then that it sewed great.

25 lbs of strength, easy to sew and excellent heat and UV ray protection. It is a great alternative to Tenara if your not top stitching. $ 15 bucks you cannot go wrong. :)

I see the guy still has over 10 available.
