Made from high strength, corrosion resistant Type 304 stainless steel, 49-Strand 7x7 cable provides excellent protection against Shark and other big game toothy fish. This cable provides excellent kink resistance and bite protection. Often times when a shark strikes a bait, they twirl violently. This motion can kink single strand leader wire and can actually be more destructive to your tackle than a fierce bite. 49-Strand resists kinking, wrestles back and allows you to hook up and haul in.

Great stuff if you like wrenching in big fish or sharks
need a good strong line for big fish or sharks? This is your go to company! crimps well with double or even single barrel sleeves. Just have to watch out when you cut it that you don't stab yourself.....Stuff is sharp. Also don't do this inside, i accidentally stepped on a piece once ( and that really smarts).
ProsStrong. Crimps well. Never had a problem with it breaking, even with sharks.
Conscould be less expensive....but i'll survive.

Great stuff, high quality
Will be using for some short segments for jigging to prevent being cut off by toothy predators. Fast shipping and great price. Good quality and very flexible... better than wire.

Can you go sharkin for monsters without it?
I'm sure you can .........BUT WHY????? this is all I use for large shark fishing. Not a lot of it, just a "Bite leader"maybe 24". There's nothing better really. Single strand wire is too kinky. Thats why you use this for shark fishing. Use a #1 brand go with 49 strand.
ProsDark coffee color. Not shiney. Bends and retains straightness even after catching a huge shark. Very easy to work with and crimp.
ConsI'm not sure if there is a con. With it being popular and easy to find at most true fishing shops, it's the go too of all real shark fisherman I know.

best wire on the market.
I use it for shark fishing from pier and shore stuff works wonders had to hold a seven foot shark at the bottom of the pier for 20 minutes while some guys were trying to gaff it. The leader after landing it was in perfect condition no frays no slip in the crimps wouldn't go shark fishing with out it.

In the past decade, Jersey's wrecks and reefs have begun to colonize with summer visitors in the form of gray triggerfish. Previously known as a relative bycatch on the structure piles, triggers are now carpeting inshore wrecks and reefs, sometimes by the hundreds.... Read More
