Made from specially controlled Type 304 stainless steel alloy, Tooth Proof is hard but not brittle, delivering both flexibility and strength. Our unique pre-straightening process eliminates cast - giving you a straighter leader with improved kink resistance.

  • Provides maximum protection against the ferocious jaws of toothy big game fish
  • Incomparable abrasion resistance tames the toughest toothy fish
  • Camouflaged brown finish vanishes in deep water
  • Tournament tested tough!

Good stuff
Not much to say it is just wire, but it has held up to its name tooth proof i have caught quite a few black tip sharks, and blue fish, it came in bent up but all was ok it held great with the haywire twist.

Only wire I use for tying king rigs.
This AFW wire is excellent for king mackerel fishing. It has reasonable flexability and easy to make haywire twist and barrel wraps, breaks clean for a professional look.
ProsSturdy and has a good breaking strength. Affordable good wire.

Extremely strong leader material
I have no doubt this wire will hold up to large toothy fish! One word of caution though. #19 wire is strong and therefore not the easiest material to tie a haywire twist.

Best Sharking wire
Easy to bend and make haywire twists. Only single strand wire that my friends and I use for Sharking. Haven't lost a shark to it and will use it every time.

Best wire I've found for shark fishing!
It really makes sense why the pros use it because to be the best you have to use the best! Definetly a requirement for big shark fishing when fishing in SC or anywhere on the coast!

Great for toothy critters
I have never had a single problem with this wire when fishing for sharks, kingfish, etc. It is built to standup to the abuse dealt by large saltwater game fish.

Good Wire
Tooth Proof has always made solid wire and I am not disappointed by this either. It doesn't king easily like some wires and I have yet to have it get cut by a fish. Also, you get a ton of footage in a coil from Tackle Directs supply versus what you will find in a retail store.

Great solid wire.
Great alternative to braided wire. A must when going after those toothy creatures. Can be a little tough to tie that haywire twist but with practice it becomes second nature.
ProsGood quality, inexpensive.
