An extremely popular tinsel body material in Europe, Magic Tinsel from Textreme is a very strong flat tinsel that can be tied in flat, or, when stretched out curls itself into a round tube perfect for segmented bodies or ribbing. The wider width of the product could also be used for flashbacks on smaller nymphs and scuds. 

Great material for perdigons and other nymphs, buzzer bodies and cheeks, and any other pattern where a tough pearlescent body is desired. 

Combo pack contains 1.5 meters each of 1/32" and 1/16" material.
Single packs contain 3 meters of material.

 Textreme says:

Special Pearlescent/Ultraviolet film overdyed in beautiful color with changeling effects. Offered in a pack with two width, 1/32” and 1/16” inch., can be used for many applications, as wing case, ribbing for bodies and as main material for bodies with changeling shades. It is translucent so you can obtain infinite combinations by creating an underbody with our Standard tying thread or with one of the Floss series, then wrap over it the Magic Tinsel. Thanks to its special laminating by pulling it gently you can obtain a small tubing with interesting characteristics. It can be used to rib or reinforce bodies, in place of copper wire thanks to its good strength, giving to the fly a touch of soft light and color. This tubing can be also used to form entire bodies or part of them, by wrapping it as a normal thread thanks to its softness and malleability, and obtain a good and imitative segmentation. By creating an underbody with our Standard tying thread or with a Floss series, you can get infinite color and flash variations on your fly. If you create a body with the Flat version and then wrap over it with our Synthetic Biot you can easily obtain imitative nymph, wet and dry bodies.
