ProWrap's new Tiger Thread provides a "fierce" new option for rod builders. This thread is a nylon twist available in 7 different color options. Use it as an overwrap, underwrap or even a single band inlay and your rod will be "king of the jungle"! 85 yard spool.

ProWrap Tiger Thread (85yd)
This thread creates a unique pattern which shifts in the blank as the diameter varies. The multicolor design shows that the rod is truly a “custom rod”.
The color of this ProWrap Tiger Thead was a perfect match for the thread on a South Bend 59 9 fly rod I was repariing for a friend that needed a tip top and wrapping at the ferrule of the tip section. I did find the thread a bit wiry, however, to the point that I wrapped it by hand rather than use the electric rod winder. I am, however, 79 years old and have not wrappped thrread on a rod for over 40 years. Despite my problem with the wiry nature, I do recommend this thread and plan to use it to wrap everything on a 9-foot, three-section bamboo rod I own. I only have the three blank sections--no reel seat, no handle, no gudes nor tip top. Final comment: a good product!
