Surfstrand 1x7 is made of corrosion resistant, spring temper stainless steel. The wire is specially stranded to deliver superior kink resistance, more realistic action, and excellent break strength. Use it for leaders, lures, and trolling. Surfstrand standard grade is a great choice when going after any toothy big game fish.
higher break strength than old style 1x3 wires
superior kink resistance
camouflaged brown minimizes reflections and disappears beneath the water
I make a lot of rigs with this wire. I am just glad that I could find the wire spool that was bigger than 30 feet. I haven't had any trouble with this wire.
Pros300 foot spool for the same price as 2 30 foot spools at any of the local shops. cant beat that price.

I have had trouble finding knot-able leaders for fly fishing for cuda and pickerel that does not curl and bond when tying to flies and this is the best yet! Canâ€;™;t wait until the blues show up this summer
ProsEase of tying Strength Allowing fly to swim w/o encumbrance
ConsTBD. None so far
Great leader for decent sized sharks and bluefish for bait

Never once had an issue of being cut off with this stuff. It just seems to roll across the teeth and to the gums of even decent sized sharks without showing any really significant damage to it.

Tackle direct has everything you need at great prices. AFW is a great product, I use it for King Mackerel can catch several fish on the same rig. Tackle direct ships it to you fast
It's a wire leader, what else is there to say

We use this leader catch smaller sharks in the bay. The camo color wire I've been buying blends in with the dirty water of the bay and the sharks don't mind it a bit. I suspect they don't care about much. We started buy spools of AFW wire after we had a bunch of factory made rigs fail. Buying wire by the spool to make up your own rigs is the only way to go.
