UNI-Flexx can be used for rubber legs and skirts. Some tiers like to use it as a floss replacement because it is much easier to handle. It is also good for bodies of small nymphs, larva and pupa. The stretch permits the material to be laid on the hook with a variety of tensions, thus reducing or avoiding slippage. In many cases it is not the stretch which is most important, rather the texture and stiffness and availability in a variety of
vibrant colours. Moreover, the material retains the original colour when wet, unlike many others. Uses are only limited by the tyer's imagination.
