I use this wire to make my king rigs for pier fishing in NC. it is easy to work with. its also pretty strong. I caught a tarpon over 100lbs from a pier using the 61# malin hardwire. there are even directions on the back teaching you to tie the knots needed for this wire.
Proscoffee color blends in. strong easy to work with.
Consbe careful not to kink the wire. it will weaken it dramatically

"This dark 80# test stainless wire is stiff enough to allow me to build my multiple hook troling rigs to run true in the water. I start with a 7/0 hook with a chin weight, then a side/back hook for the ones that don't take my whole herring. The wire twists well, rolls tight, and breaks clean so there is no sharp edge. If your needs include rigging hoos for troling rigs like mine, I would reccomend you give this hard wire a try."
