Veevus thread Ben. Donít try to break it with your fingers. Youíll leave a scarÖ..another scarÖ..behind.

Itís slippery so after you whip finish, give it a drop of super glue.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Ben, Iíve used Veevus power thread 140 denier for bucktails. Seems to hold up pretty good. Others may chime in with their preferences.

140 is more that adequate Ben.

 Veevus is good  stuff  but i have  so much thread i  often  grab what ever is  close ....tying bucktails    my way  doesn't  matter  much i  like  to put a  drop of  super glue  gel on the  hook then the buck tail  wrap  tight  hitch  then i  either  use uv  resin or  two piece  epoxy i won't say it won't  slip  apart  i will say it will take awhile
