My invisble thread is really weak. Really weak. Is it supposed to be like this or is mine just bad quality?

I doubt its bad quality. The durability of your IT heavily relies on the length you cut it. The longer the weaker.

generally, its weak because its thin, and its thin so it can be invisible.

Dealers usually sell different types of thread depending on thickness, and invisibility. (you might often see descriptions such as "thickest and strongest possbile while still invisible" or most invisible IT)

A quick solution would be to get kevlar IT instead.

Double/triple up the strands when stripping. All depends on what you're doing. I use it for my self folding bill with abut four strands. They are quite a pain in the butt to make, and only last for two performances if you're lucky before snapping, but definatly cool as it basically self-destructs so you can do more magic with the bill.

I use Kevlar thread. It is supposed to be the strongest you can get. it seems to be a little stiff at first, but it does work good.

I can float small objects like someones keys, or a small wallet. I have been brave with two strands and floated a wine glass.

It completely depends on what effects you want to do. Some hook ups and effects require elastic and normal thread wont work, and some are the other way around.
