    I'm wondering what "power" the UV lights are that dentists use in curing fillings?

    PS Given all the wonderful information shared in this thread, I will have now to return to the fly shop where I said the material I purchased "had no UV as stated" and I will apologize for my ignorance (then).

    I spoke to a fly shop owner today who told me uv on many sirit river ( and i would assume other brands) products such as maribou and feathers actually stands for Ultra Visible. Not ultraviolet. Just a marketing ploy.

    According to Spirit River, your dealer is wrong.

    http://spiritriver.net/uv

    These are Spirit River's UV products. Perhaps you can refer your dealer to these URLs.

    http://spiritriver.net/uv2

    This is Spirit River's UV marabou. Bearsden says it is UV flourescent as their photo shows.

    I didn't think this was correct. Spirit River is a decent company. Speaking for myself, I definitely need an education on things UV and florescent. I think some others do too. It is a relatively new thing to many of us.

    Thanks for the correction and link. I notice that that material is called UV2. I have spirit river stuff that has a UV sticker on it. Anyone know for sure if that stuff is real UV.
    Thanks

    UV2 may mean 2nd generation and UV 1st generation. Just a guess.
