Kevlar thread source in Canada

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I use fine kevlar thread for lashings (joining CF rods, lashing metal wire to balsa structures), flying wires or even pull-pull systems. Kevlar is very strong and has little stretch so it's well suited to the task. You obviously aren't going to be using this stuff for a 1/4 scale plane, but for small builds (<40" WS or micro's) it's perfect.

Generally, any store that specializes in fly fishing supplies may carry Kevlar thread. But if you having a hard time finding it, try Wholesale Sports:

They carry both natural (UNI) and colored (Superfly) Kevlar thread in 50yd spools. Price is $2.50-$3.00/spool + shipping (~$9)

Re: Kevlar thread source in Canada

Another great source is Kevlar rope.
You can buy it by the foot.
Buy a couple of feet and just untwist when you need some.
