The SSS braid comes in a quality which makes it perfect for all forms of bodies. It is not too thick to overlap or to be twisted. In my own fly tying I only use this one quality. If I need a ribbing I use the same material but twine it into a round or oval form. The harder you twist the smaller flies it fits. It is simple and effective and you can use the same quality for both body and ribbing. The SSS-Braid also comes in the 15 unique SSS colors. The material is placed on a smart gizmo that has a nice endcap that makes the material stay in place. The braid is 2mm wide.
