REALLY happy with my order of Uni-Flexx Floss Red. Many versions of flex floss on the market, BUT they're all cut lengths! Great advantage of Uni-Flexx Floss is that its spooled on a continuous spool of 15 yards. I can cut off whatever length I need without tying lengths together when for example tying an Apps Special Variant. Easy ordering, speedy delivery, thank you Essential Fly.
