Re: Thread Thread: Trimaran Trampolines and UV Resistant Thread

Wow, hard to believe North Sails have never heard of Tenara...

I recommend it highly, and would suggest you think about going with the M1000H heavy duty stuff, it's awesome...

As others mention, it does take a while to dial in your machine to get it right, easing the bobbin tension was the final adjustment that got it right, for me...

The M1000H is a much different thread construction, and is particularly prone to twisting... In an effort to alleviate this, it's recommended that you mount the thread cone horizontally - like a roll of toilet paper - instead of pulling it vertically from the cone, as is normal... I found this to make a noticeable difference...

Here's a very helpful YouTube from Sailrite on sewing with Tenara:
