Would love to know the answer to this myself.
Ps are ITR's able to use different threads or are they built to use particular threads such as Kevlar or vectra etc?

I think I can clear this up, although this should properly be in the threads and reels forum...

While I'm not certain which reel comes with the Centrifugal DVD, from your description it's probably a James George reel- likely a Boss or Mini Boss reel. Sorcery manufactures them, and they're the best out there. I own 3 and while, like all ITR's, they have their quirks, George's reels are definately the smoothest and most reliable out there.

The ITR reel by Steve Fearson is not actually made by him- it's also a James George reel, in this case the Alpha ITR, which has the new "open" design. The thread it contains is Fearson's baby- Vectra.

And it is *the* thread to use.

Comparisons between the various threads can easily be found in the threads and reels sessions of the Secret Sessions area (50 post req) so I won't go into that here.

To answer Mal3's question- Yes, they can use different threads. There are factors to consider, but the short answer is yes.

Again, see the relevant forum subsection.

I think Centrifugal comes with a Boss ITR. The type of thread used for the reel is really not a huge concern since you can very easily take the reel apart, unthread it, and then spool on whatever thread you prefer to use. I'm not a big fan of kevlar especially for ITRs as I find the sucking out the thread method of repair quite difficult when dealing with kevlar as kevlar tends to be very slippery and thus it's quite hard to suck out and catch the end of the thread. Kevlar is also a lot shinier than regular IT so that's another drawback. Best bet, buy some Vectra and buy Centrifugal, then just replace the kevlar that is on the spool with the Vectra.

Thanks all, this is very educational for me as I have no experience using an ITR, and was contemplating the Centrifugal set.
