Mark, my limited experience with kevlar threads led me to chuck them out. They were tough on tools & cut hair if you pulled too tight.
What I like for heavier tying in general has been Guidbrod 3/0 & Giorgi Bennocci which I haven't seen in a couple of years. The Bennocci stuff may be the gelspun material. For lighter stuff I've been using 6/0 Uni thread and have been surprised by its strength. It may just be me but I think that threads have become much stronger in recent years.
One cutting tip I forgot to add is that the tighter its packed the easier it is to cut. so remember that old foot ball cheer and " pushem back pushem back way back"
