Monofilament makes a nice ribbing material, and you probably already have spools in a variety of sizes. I've been using Polly Rosborough's dubbing method which gives a surprisingly good segmentation without additional ribbing. And as Dub pointed out above, quills make very nice segmented bodies.
Does wire work better? Nobody can answer that question. If I am ribbing a fly and want flash and weight I use wire, if I just want flash I use tinsel or very light wire, and if I'm going for a realistic look I use monofilament or tying thread. They all work sometimes.

I dye monofilament in a variety of colors to use for ribbing, varying the mono diameter for different size flies.
